Not up to the usual standard tonight. Ordered spaghetti with meat sauce. They got the spaghetti right. Cooked well. The meat sauce was anything but meat sauce. Could not see or taste any meat. Basically plain red tomato sauce.

The service is excellent, the atmosphere cozy. All food is cooked to order. Never a problem having something made the way you personally would like it. Have eaten here about 50 times and never had a bad meal yet!

If you're looking for a great pizza made with fresh ingredients, then this is your place. The other dishes and hot sandwiches are good too. They have a nice little seating area outside. Even outside, the service is pretty good.
