We love this place. The owner is very friendly and concerned that everything is perfect for the guests. Though you can order a number of Italian dishes, his specialty, of course is pizza. The specialty pizzas are all outstanding. Our favorite is the Jacob.

Went once and will return for good service and very tasty Italian food. Different than your typical pizza and much better than cooking pizza at home. Excellent service; of course, we went late afternoon before the evening crush of patrons.
