Great little pizza pub with delicious salads, good pizza with a honey, chili oil dipping sauce. It is always crowded, with tables very close to each other. Local beers on tap with a variety of other beverages of choice.

We were a party of four. Everyone ordered something different from soup to sandwiches to pizza. All of it was fresh and very well prepared. Prices were reasonable and service fast. What more could you want?
