The place is beautiful. It's a cafe and pizzeria all in one. They have a brick oven right when you walk in the door. I ordered a pizza to go at the coffee counter. As I waited I watched the pizza being made and watched them take the pizza out of the oven. I then watched two waiters continue to... More

The atmosphere is distinctly European which is aided by the lyrical Italian-accented english spoken by your server. Great coffee - I have bought it to take home.

This place has great authentic Neapolitan pizza. If you are looking for American style pizza, this is not the place for you. However, if you want a taste of being in Italy, this restaurant is great! The wine was pricey, but the pizzas average about $10-15 a piece.
