Wow this place is amazing. Absolutely the best Pasta Primavera I have ever had, but I am getting away from myself. One would miss this cute little place if you didn't know where to go. Very small with outdoor seating and a small wait (only about 20 minutes); however, it was well worth it. The owner is amazing. She came... More

Our evening was wonderful after we found this charming cafe. We were shocked at the quality and perfection of the wood fired pizza we received. We've spent time in Europe and this pizza was even better than ones we have had in Italy. The lobster ravioli was amazing. We split a dessert even though we were stuffed and we were... More

Based on Trip Advisor ratings, we are thankful to have found our way to this lovely little gem of a restaurant. Upon hearing it was our first visit, owners came out to not only welcome us but Jill was sweet enough to share your own dinner - pizza - with us. BEST pizza we have ever tasted and we have... More

Amantha, Well this review leaves me a bit confused. You wanted to like it, based on reviews, high expectations..... Pizza was soggy?
