Great little Italian food cafe. The whole place seats about 45 so come early or you may have to wait but it will be worth it. If you you want calzone then you won’t leave hungry. Great food and great service. A local gem.

Can I first say, the only reason this place isn't a top 5 on trip advisor for BHam is because there hasn't been enough reviews to put it there. It's a little hole in the wall with amazing food and super reasonable prices. Every time...More

Seriously, all it takes is one visit and you'll be hooked. Fresh bread everyday (the recipe is 2nd to none; the sauces are addictive; a loyal following of customers from downtown, the neighborhood and the Univ of Alabama at Birmingham. Located right off I -65....More
