Good selection of authentic pizzas, cooked quickly and carried to your table! Thin crust--I ask for extra crispy as once undercooked of several times there. Two people eating light can share one pizza for a VERY cheap date Pop cheaper than anywhere else too! And you just order at the counter so tipping minimal. $10 enough to satisfy two!

A fun atmosphere with amazing pizza. It's not your run of the mill pizza pie restaurant. They have put a very unique spin of the own on their menu. Don't be afraid to step outside your comfort zone and try something new and amazing.

Without question, this is the best wood fired pizza we have ever had. The crust was perfect: flavorful, chewy, crunchy, and just slightly charred. The toppings were fresh and tasty. I could go on and on. This pizza is simply the best in the wood fired style. The atmosphere was clean, but nothing special. My rating is due to the... More

This is my favorite restaurant ever. It has a casual European feel and the food is excellent. The owners are often working and serving and are extremely friendly. This is a great date night destination. It's less convenient with kids in tow for a few reasons: 1 - the restaurant is small and fills up quickly during dinner rush, especially... More

Every table was taken when we arrived, so we knew it must be good. You order at a counter in the center of the restaurant, where you can see a couple of guys making pizzas. They serve a wide variety of pizzas, some traditional (sausage, pepperoni) and some really unique (fig & pear). The pizzas are 10" so you can... More

My family went here for dinner and my wife absolutely loved it. She got a salad and said, "best salad ever." We also got two pizzas and each were very unique. One was a specialty and the other was an all cheese. Both had very good flavor. I thought all food was excellent and it was very fast to get... More

Awesome handmade to order pizza! Baked in brick fired oven that looks hotter than lava from Mt Vesuvius. Other great food as well. I enjoyed a Napoli with sausage, salami and red onions.

Love this pizza. The Caprese Pacino with chicken is my favorite. Wine and beer served. Staff is friendly and atmosphere is casual. Can't wait to come back.

Excellent pizza! Watch them stretch the dough and top your pizza with fresh ingredients. Then throw it in their 700 degree oven and within minutes a nice fresh popping hot pizza like you were visiting Italy. Try their Pear Gorgonzola salad!! It is Delish!!

This is the worst pizza I've ever eaten, or didn't eat. It is raw in the middle. I complained and was told that's the way Neapolitan pizza is. Well many people seem to like it and they have awards for the best non traditional pizza so if you like that kind of pizza you may like it. Wasn't offered a... More
