It is a small place, doesn't look like much but the food was amazing. Best garlic knots I have ever had, no doubt. Very fresh ingredients. Nice, clean, family atmosphere. Great service. Personable staff.

Staying at the Best western and went here due to good reviews. Food was average. Nothing special. Got the works 12" pie and garlic knots. I have to say the garlic knots were better than the pizza. Pizza was lacking, thin, moist, and not much...More
