Our family party of 7 ordered 3 different pizzas, each of which was delicious, plus salads, and we had ample leftovers. Our Italian waiter gave us great service, and overall it was an enjoyable and relaxing meal, perfect for a vacation--and very reasonably priced, too!

Service was excellent, but the atmosphere was closer to a bar than a restaurant. Music selection and volume was annoying, and having a conversation was difficult. About the food we all had mixed feelings. Our salmon pastas were mediocre, the salad and carpaccio were ok,...More

Pizzas were great, authentic wood oven makes such a difference. But the basil martini was uber fantastic. Pasta menu looked exciting too.

Have awesome pizzas cooked in a wood fired oven. Make sure you put a little of the red pepper/olive oil mix on top. Also grab a pizza to take down to beach and just chill. Very good food.

just off 5th Street and 38 this restaurant was recommended by locals. It is small, in an open setting, with a casual atmosphere. Here we had the best fresh tuna main dish we have ever had anywhere in the world.
