The owner moved there from California and one sits outside with only a few other tables. Romantic and the food is good and a bit different. they have good pizza as well as other California type dishes with a local flair.

Jungle Love is original, fresh, and made ready to order. We had the pizza and the sea bass. Very good and left you feeling good afterwards. We had a baby and the owner was willing to make him a small plate of food. Thanks!
