Ate at this restaurant for dinner. Ordered a pizza & a couple of beers. The food was good and the total for two people was $25. Not bad and we missed happy hour too.

This place is a fairly decent Italian place. Their pizza is good and they have a fairly good menu. The service was good, and they even have a band on Friday.
