Visited for the first time and weren’t disappointed. The owner and the staff were very friendly and welcoming. We had one of the signature pizzas and it was great! The place has a very cozy feel to it which was nice too.

Service was wonderful. Food was amazing! I ordered an eggplant parmesan sandwich. I had never tasted eggplant cooked that way. Also the marinara sauce was very good!The wall is covered with photos of celebrities who have dined here. Small intimate restaurant, worth the wait!
