Good pizza, pasta, and salads. Love the house Italian dressing. We visit when ever we are in the area, never been disappointed. Would recommend they have yellow bell peppers as a pizza topping. Bartenders are rockstars!

Picked up pizza to go and was not disappointed with the pizza, lots of toppings and a delightful crispy crust. I did call ahead and it was ready when they said it would be. Dining room seemed quite busy.
