Sandwiches are pretty good, but didn't care for the pizza at all. We thought the pizza wasn't like any we'd ever had, the sauce wasnt' all that great. Not sure I'd go back.

Wonderful food & atmosphere. Not a chain, so owners are there making sure you have a pleasurable dinning experience. I definitely would like to go back.

First time there. They immediately accepted our Groupon. Our server, Todd, was really helpful, happy and polite. We had two different main meals. Both great flavor, appearance and quantity. We had the best calamari (and big portion) as appetizer. Definitely recommended.
