Tried for the first time and found an excellent authentic pizza place from Little Italy! Ordered with ease from GrubHub. The crust is awesome and crispy. I got the white pizza and added pancetta....it was fantastic! The 10" is more than enough for one. Also...More

Wandered in for a quick bite during the Italian Festival. The pesto steak sandwich is wonderful and the salads were huge. Prices were extremely reasonable. Staff were very friendly!
