Tried this restaurant out today in the outskirts of Lakeside. We had the torpedoes and they were fine but still favor filippis the best. We both had the vegetation soup and it was great. The garlic bread lacked flavor??. Nice and quite atmosphere and very...More

The place and presentation are rustic to say the least. But this hole in the wall has really great pizza. Thin crust, fresh toppings and surprisingly tangy sauce. We had the house special and pepperoni, both equally good.

Had the Lasagna special on a Wednesday night. It's been several months ago that we were there. Hope to go again real soon for their Lasagna. It's to die for!

I live just down the street but it took me awhile to get here. Had been given mixed recommendations about the place. I've had pizza once and pasta a few times. Everything I've had here has always been excellent. And they are very friendly!!!
