One of the reasons I like music festivals is getting to try great food without running all over the place. I got to try these guy's pie and would happily seek out their restaurant the next time in N.Y.

We had meatball, filet mignon salad, potato croquet, pizza and sangria. All was fabulous. Waiter, Juan, was wonderful! Ambiance was great. Open air dining in September was terrific.

I loved that place from the very first sight - the people working there are real Italians, the bar has a lot of authentic features brought from Napoli, Italia (Naples, Italy) - and as long as I'm just in love with Italy, I enjoyed eating...More
