Just found this place for the first time. It truly is the best pizza I have ever eaten in my life. Be sure to check open times. They are closed from 2:00-4:00 I think during the week. The house salad is amazing. True Italian pizza.

I love pizza. This place was pretty darn good. You can tell that the people who work there are actually Italian, which is cool. They really care about it. The restaurant itself is a pretty nice place as well!

Great food, great service, very reasonable. Vegetarian pizza was delicious. A fine place to dine quietly with friends. Very pleasant dining experience, and you never feel 'processed'.

This place was unknown to us on our previous trips to the area. I saw the advertisement and insisted that we try it. Boy, I was glad that I did. It is quaint and "homey" small seating area but the outside seating is available also....More

We arrived at 8 pm and the place had a waiting list. Some of the best Italian food I've ever eaten, including the garlic rolls. We had the pizza and pasta. The menu is pretty cool as it tells you the customers' favorites, the house...More
