This was our first time trying this restaurant and we were not disappointed. We ordered take out. First off parking in West Portal is not easy, so go early to find parking. Anyway, the cornmeal crust on the pizza just adds a little something extra...More

It is not the best in town, but they make a solid pie that has no major flaws. Maybe a little heavy on the cheese.

We've eaten in, and the food is great. The atmosphere is plain. Take out is super. Try the ravioli, the salads, the pizza. Bring a passenger to run in for pick-up as parking is tough. Nice, friendly service. Reasonably priced.

So happy to hear that you've been pleased, Denise, although of course it's never fun to hear the atmosphere described as plain. I appreciate the feedback, though. Hope you'll be back for more tasty take-out soon! Take care, Pedro, Owner
