As a party of six, we visited to celebrate a graduation on a Saturday evening. Although we put our name on the waitlist, we were sat in a matter of 7 to 10 minutes. This is one of those amazing places where you're allowed to...More

I've dined here many times. The pizza is fantastic! The pizza comes out fast even when it is crowded. It is consistently good and service is equally good. One note, peanuts are everywhere and the shells often get thrown on the floor. Watch your step...More
