Super successful date night. We ate outside with all the twinkling lights. Great service. We both had pizza. The small is big enough to share. Samplers of the gelato convinced us to order the hazelnut gelato. Felt like we were back in Italy. The small...More

The pizza and other Italian dishes are excellent here, as is the service. It is also reasonably priced.

Tiny inside but nice outdoor seating, parking sometimes an issue. Pizza is outstanding as is the gelato. Most other dishes are well done, but priced a little higher than expected. Soups are great, meatballs wonderful.

Food is prepared onsite and fresh and the restaurant is locally owned meaning you get personal service. The only negative comment is that it is relatively small and its popularity can be an issue - but worth the effort because the food is great.

I went there with a group of 10 in February while in the area for a conference. We had a 15 minute wait, but it was worth every minute. I don't remember if we tried to get reservations. The pizza is AMAZING and the... More
