If you're looking for something just a bit off the main drag this is your spot. Quite possibly the best pizza I've ever had. Great entrees, amazing food, quaint atmosphere.

Been here many times and the food is always consistent & very good! The service is prompt and professional. Love their carpaccio!! We like that the owner is always around to oversee the quality of dishes! On weekends, it's necessary to make reservations.

I came here with my family and everybody love it. The food and atmosphere were just like a classic Tuscan Osteria. The food was beyond amazing. The sauces taste like they have been slow cooking all day. The pizza was thin crust with lots of...More

Hi, I'm planning to book my mother's birthday at this place. I'm looking at the Party Menu...and I'm wondering if I can make changes to a couple of items from the menu and replaced with others from the main?
