Though we've visited this area for many years we'd never eaten here. Until today, for lunch. It was wonderful. Great food and even many vegetarian options. I had the veggie wrap with grilled vegetables and mozzarella. Very good. Was told by the others in my party their Caesar salads, lasagne, crab cake sandwich and Caprese salads were also very good....

Stopped here for an early dinner/late lunch. Found the service was very good and the food tasty, but a little on the heavy side. Pizza was good, but a little greasy. Would definitely try again.

Some of the charges on bills were confusing Ex1: They included gratuity in the bill which I had no clue. So added 18% extra. Ex2: If they know, it is a business dinner, they over charge you

Service very slow when busy. Décor interesting and unique. We have been throughout the building, including the attic, so if you can visit on a slow day, be sure to ask to see the building. Very interesting story!
