Nice atmosphere and food was just ok. Mozzarella appetizer very good. Meatball appetizer had four bite size meatballs-pretty underwhelming. Pizza was good but nothing special. Just didn't live up to overall ratings.

Never had such a great pizza before, even in Italy. They have plenty of meat/veggie options, big pieces, its super fresh and simply delicious. I had the one with goat cheese and eggplant and even though it sounds weird - it was awesome. Would definitely come back for more.

Ordered the Rustico pizza. Highly recommend it. Loved the thin crust, sauce and fresh arugula on top. Chelsea was our server and she provided excellent service. Will visit often.

My wife and I have visited PR many times by ourselves and with friends -- it’s a good place to share with friends. ATMOSPHERE: Every time we can remember, the customers seem to have a joie de vivre, and the vibrant décor adds to this good cheer and friendliness. Very European. An upstairs area has more intimacy. Service has been... More

They make excellent thin crust pizza. My favorite is their arugula and prosciutto pizza. They also serve a decent variety of Italian beer and wine. I like birra moretti Rossi. The service is great and fast. Plenty of parking near by.

Been there about 5 times, always been good. None of the stock pizzas are quite right, but you can add ingredients to them. Definitely have beer, not sure what else. They have a nice patio, I think that's one of my main reasons to go there. Nice to sit out on the patio on a nice day. Service has always... More

We've eaten here half a dozen times and drive almost 50 miles each way for the pleasure. We love the excellent customer service, and even more their commitment to clean food sources including non-desiccated wheat. Local food and Italian imports round out the menu. Just a really good time.

Thank Makara M
