Three of us went for an early dinner. Service was great and food was excellent. Clams are great, meatballs are wonderful. We'll be going back more often.

5 stars... We had the calamari for an app. It was cooked perfectly.. Then we had a barbecued chicken pizza. The crust was just about the best I have ever had. It was soft and you could taste that they use a higher grade of flour then many restaurants. Delicious pizza. It was just a bit sweet for me, but... More

Grabbed a cheese pizza to go. More like a sloppy box of soup. Upon lifting a slice up from the box, all the sauce/cheese slid right off the dough and back into the box. Again and again and again. Had to eat it with a spoon. Not good. If I wanted soup, I would have ordered soup.

BY FAR AND AWAY THE BEST PIZZA IN THE VALLEY- UNDISPUTED! Thin crust - fresh toppings - creative specialty pies - brick oven quality without the brick oven! Reasonable prices and a long list of craft brews on tap.

We chose this restaurant by chance simply by looking on Google Maps for a place to eat close to the highway exit. The dining room was empty (for lunchtime on a Saturday) probably because it was snowing outside. We got the muscles in white sauce as an appetizer. They were okay, not the freshest. They had a stronger-than-normal fish odor.... More

The bread was kind of stale. The house dressing was too vinegary. On the plus side, both of our entrees had a yummy sauce but the proteins were very overcooked. Service was attentive.

We have been there for date nights, family dinners, drinks, happy hours... always had a good experience. They always have good specials too. The "Pizza of the week" is always something interesting.
