Great family place. Good selection of beers. Not gray wine selection. Pizza is good but way too much crust. Gets very very crowded at dinner around 6. Go early or late.

Stumbled across this wonderful pizza place while on vacay. The pizza and breadsticks are too die for! Ambiance is great - kind of old fashioned Italian family restaurant vibe. Busy place but service was still pretty good. My mouth is watering just remembering the food!...More

Hi, who are the actual owners of this Restaraunt? I am with a group that is interested in finding a way to bring their Pizza into a Campus environment and we would love to talk to them about it. Thanks.

No deep dish, just Italian style crust- very good. The pizzas are topped with plenty of fresh ingredients. Parking is limited (FYI).
