Went to eat here twice. The pasta was delicious and the thin slices pizza rated an 8 out of 10. They have a nice patio overlooking the ocean and boardwalk. The interior is pleasant at well. They also make fresh smoothies.

We're about good food, and good people. We make everything ourselves, bases are slow fermented daily to create an unique flavour, we hand-roll the pasta everyday, the vinaigrette, desserts, ice-cream is all made by us...and we only use fresh local produce.
