I'm Italian, so if I'm talking about pizza you have to trust me. Here you can eat one of the best pizza in Detroit area. Really, very good pizza, great place, great service, great people.

Went for a group bday party and had reserved table upstairs. They push the fresh ingredients angle very effectively and the menu reflects it unique mix on the pizza. Wife ordered margarita pizza and I ordered special for the night sea bass. Pizza had burnt crust and my seabass was over cooked and so thin on the skin I thought... More

They were revising their wine list and we happen to be there when they were selling wines at discount prices! Great service!

If you're looking for a different kind of pizza place, this is it! The dough is very unique, and they have unique toppings too. Good appetizer choices as well. Service could be a lot better, but I still recommend it.

We have become regulars at this great Pizza spot. Fresh, fresh, fresh. Pizza dough is great, topping are too! We get either the roasted vegetable or Margaretta pizza and a great beet salad. Craft beer and good wine make this a great dinner, especially when we can sit outside!

My favorite place for pizza. Very cool spot, nice outdoor seating area. The train adds to the experience.

We enjoyed pizzas and delicious sangria on the outdoor patio. We loved being in downtown and the train going by added to the cool urban vibe!

Eating outside at this restaurant gives you a sense of Europian dining. It is nestled right next to the railroad tracks. Cloth napkins, large bottled water to share, very simple chic. Limited unusual menu. Pizza is awesome. Wine cellar in the basement.

My first visit I tried chicken parmesan & it was delicious. The chicken actually had flavor. Done to perfection sided with rigatoni. Finished the meal with a generous piece of tirami su cake. Would definitely go again. Emily provided excellent service.

They have great Italian pizza. But they really shine with their pastas. Wish they had more pasta option like a bolognese sauce or ravioli. But great place.
