I personally enjoyed the pizza but I only get it special occasions since it is a little pricey. I recommend the pasta it really good. Sometimes it can take a while for your food but generally worth the wait.

Very tasty and unique, but very pricey. Nice staff and good service. All of the ingredients were fresh and of good quality.

I drove from an hour away (as I usually do), at the halfway point I call in to place my order and I'm told I can't; they're not taking pizza orders. Are you kidding? What a waste of time for a loyal customer. Never again.
