Great meal. Great service. We shared two pizzia sand they were both excellent. They have a great wine list. We ate at the bar and the bartender was great. I will for sure be going back.

Hmm. If you like burned extremely expensive pizza with pretentious waiters, this is the place for you. Honestly I have no idea why this place has such good ratings. The waiter actually said to me, " there are hard words on the menu and I...More
