We chose this place because of favorable reviews, and were a bit disappointed. Both the vegetable pasta, lasagna, pizza and carbonara lacked taste. The gelato was good though.

My husband's MD recommended the pizza. We usually get pizza hut, etc. This was our first coal oven baked pizza. We got it to go. The restaurant is small and smokey from the oven. Order was correct, ready on time. Enjoyed the fresh ingredients.

I went there with a group of 10 in February while in the area for a conference. We had a 15 minute wait, but it was worth every minute. I don't remember if we tried to get reservations. The pizza is AMAZING and the... More
