If you are looking for good food, good service, generous portions, and a place where you can get in and out easily ~ in very little time. I am sad to have to mention that parking has become quite an issue in West Portal ~ one of my favorite neighborhoods though ~ and this restaurant a place we will definitely... More

We decided to try this great restaurant one more time and we were not thrilled. We did try amazon restaurants which we like, but I ordered a "denser, thicker" corn crust pizza and it was thinner than the regular pizza I think and not as good. The first pizza I had here was one of the best I have ever... More

Nancy, although I'm glad you had a good pizza with us the first time you visited, I'm sorry to hear you were less than impressed this time. We take a lot of pride in the food we prepare from fresh ingredients and cooked with care, but it sounds like we missed the mark with your cornmeal crust pie this time.... More

We ordered from here on our Amazon account and it was the worst food we've had in a very long time. Cheap ingredients and not prepared at all well. The chicken piccata was not pan fried enough, the pasta was rubbery and was void of any flavor.

This was our first time trying this restaurant and we were not disappointed. We ordered take out. First off parking in West Portal is not easy, so go early to find parking. Anyway, the cornmeal crust on the pizza just adds a little something extra and it tastes great. I can't wait to have it again. My husband ordered a... More

It is not the best in town, but they make a solid pie that has no major flaws. Maybe a little heavy on the cheese.

The food here is the absolute best and a must try. The service is great and the food is a great value. They have a cornmeal pizza with pesto sauce and cheese that is the best pizza I have ever had. That along with their garlic clove pasta is the best.

Who knew we needed an Italian Brazilian restaurant? They did. An odd collection of rooms with sparse furnishings, it is very casual. The Italian food is good but not excellent. Pizza is good. I think Brazilian is the way to go here. I've had several of the dishes and enjoyed them all. It's not very expensive. The service can be... More

We've eaten in, and the food is great. The atmosphere is plain. Take out is super. Try the ravioli, the salads, the pizza. Bring a passenger to run in for pick-up as parking is tough. Nice, friendly service. Reasonably priced.
