Our 7-year old daughter enjoys making her own pizza and then watches it cook in the large wood-fired pizza oven. I enjoy the panini with Gorgonzola and my husband loves the lasagna. The price is usually more reasonable during the week when they have lunch specials. In fact, we generally only eat lunch here so we do not know what... More

The pizza was not what we expected, although we liked the attention the waiter was polite, we liked the environment as well.

Disappointing Italian restaurant and too expensive for what you get. For example the salmon carpaccio is cut so thin (probably to save on salmon) that you barely get a taste of it. Pizzas are fine (the crust is fine), however the “sun-dried tomato” pizza I ordered had very few samples of sun-dried tomato on it. I prefer Pane e Vino,... More

Great sangrias ( red and white) oh and worst gnocchies ever... More

Traveling with kids 10 years ago when have been unbearable (glad we did not have to do so.) Now we have two little ones and this place is great. Pizza is fantastic. As for... More

The service was ok, ambience ok, they do not have half of the things the offer on the menu. I ordered a mushroom fussily and ask for parmesan cheese and they tell me they can only give me one little portion for pasta plate and they charge extra for each one. In an Italian restaurant charge extra for Parmesan cheese... More
