Excellent pizza and appetizers. Thin crust pizza was delicious with chicken and lamb bacon. Extremely reasonably priced and the decor and ambience was beautiful. A must for a return visit.

Description
Located beside the Gypsy Tea Room with the Main entrance off of the courtyard on Water street. evoo in the courtyard offers great Mediterranean fare and authentic Neapolitan style wood fired pizza. We cater to families, vegetarians, and have quite a few gluten friendly options. Our cozy bar is a great hideaway with a good selection of spirits, crafted beer and cocktails.
