The food is excellent. We had two waters, a root beer ($2.99), a Gluten Free pizza with pepperoni and Italian sausage ($16.99) and a chicken Melanese ($16.99). The staff were friendly and the restaurant was clean.

This restaurant didn't disappoint like one I tried in New York. This restaurant delivers Italian pizza as it should be - a thin, slightly crispy and wonderfully with superb toppings, still the toppings didn't overpower the crust. If room for dessert try the red velvet...More
