I had a thin crust pizza and fried calamari. Both were very good although I wish they offered a non-fired version of calamari. Ample servings so left overs to take back to my hotel. If you're staying at one of the many nearby hotels and...More

It wasn't bad. We got the app that gives you a bunch of different things, it was pretty good. I ordered the Chicken Parm and it was decent. The chicken was cut into a bunch of peices, and then covered in a pool of sauce...More

Reading the other reviews for this place I think a lot of the problem with service stems for language and cultural barriers. The service is friendly and accommodating. The restaurant is quaint and cozy. If you are in a hurry or want something quick this...More

Calzones are super cheesy but the must have dish here is Chicken Stephanny that has chicken breast, shrimp & crab meat sauteed in chicken stock sauce & cream sauce. With homemade rosemary bread and ziti with marinara sauce.

This place has a great tasting pie! I had the spinach and tomato pizza and it was very good. Thin crust, not soggy...just right! They also deliver to local hotels, so this is a huge plus.

Very creamy and tender veal. Really a delightfully enjoyed dish. Nice flavor. Subtle flavor, and great textures for the chocolate mousse cake.
