Awful first impression. As we walked in the front door, we were greeted by a strong sewage smell coming from the direction of the kitchen. The dining room is small and crowded and felt even more oppressive because the ceiling tiles were painted a dark...More

Tucked in a strip mall/plaza, this is a small, but charming venue. There is a small outdoor dining space as well. I noticed quite a few people coming and going for take-out pizza. We had pizza, a seafood 'n pasta dish and minestrone (bit salty)....More

Enjoyed the pizza selections choosing the Marguerita and seafood ones. Hesitant being from Chicago for the seafood one. It was excellent! Crab and shrimp were perfect additions to a delicious crust.

Open 7 days/week, but only from 4:30-10 PM. Their menu isn't posted on their website, but you can pick up a printed Take Out Menu at the restaurant. We just wanted to order a pizza to bring home for just the two of us. So,...More
