We don't go to this restaurant very often because there is a very small window between the time that they open and the time they get really crowded.
Although there are many enticing items on the menu, we usually have pizza. I'm partial to the margherita pizza but my wife tried the bbq chicken pizza and it was fantastic. It was totally unlike any other pizza I've ever had and I plan to eat it again.
Panna cotta for dessert was also quite tasty.
The staff was very friendly and the service exemplary.

Consistently good Italian cuisine I never eat spaghetti and meatballs outside of my own home. When I have a craving and don't want to cook, I head here. All menu items are well prepared!

Had a very enjoyable visit to this establishment. Dinner was very good, had the fillet medallions. I ordered them medium and they were a just a bit overdone otherwise I'd have given this a 5 star for quality for a moderately priced restaurant.

The service was very good, and the atmosphere is warm and interesting.

I am a vegetarian and always find something delicious on the menu! The kale salad is a must!! Pizzas are mouth watering. The honey appetizer and lasagna are more of my favorites can't go wrong here. There is something for everyone.

Went here with another couple, had no idea what to expect. We had "priority seating" but had to wait about 45 minutes before we got a table. The hostess said "thank you for your patience. It will be worth the wait" boy was she right! Valerie our waitress was awesome - super personality, very attentive, and she gave us great suggestions and advice. We opted to just order a bunch of things and share. Loved every single thing I tried. Meatball sliders-awesome. Ricotta + honeycomb - all said it was delicious but I skipped it since I don't like ricotta. Hangar steak-omg sauce is heavenly. BBQ chicken pizza-very good. Rigatoni bolognese-tasty and the small shared portion was just enough for me. I don't think I would have wanted to eat whole portion. Crispy pork belly-agreed by all of us best thing we ate all night. Just amazing! The place is very cozy and I just can't say enough about the service. Valerie took good care of us and was about the best waitress I've had. Meal was absolutely delicious!!! Chefs deserve praise. We will definitely be coming back. I guess this is why they are #1 on Trip Advisor!!
