This place is a fairly decent Italian place. Their pizza is good and they have a fairly good menu. The service was good, and they even have a band on Friday.

This place is awesome! Everyone was very friendly, staff and the other patrons alike. They also had live music as a bonus! We will go back here anytime we go through Payson, what a treat! The food was also very good, but honestly it was just such a pleasant experience there!
