We stopped in after a day of vineyard visits in the area. The food here is consistently good, bordering on really good. The service is consistently mediocre; never bad, just never really good. They have amazing Italian food, even though “Brick” is no longer the...More

I had the Vegetarian Pasta which was really good. My husband had the pepperoni pizza which was marginal at best (and expensive for a personal pizza). Friends also ate here a day after and reported a marginal experience.

This was a pretty mediocre to poor lunch experience. The watermelon salad is simply soggy watermelon and juice on iceberg lettuce and couldn't be eaten. The service was very slow and 2people at our table were done eating before the other 5 received our food.

Quite a menu with plenty of options. It would have been difficult to decide if I hadn't already decided on pizza before I walked in. I wasn't at all disappointed. The pizza was amazing! The pizzas are 12" with a thinner type crust. Very fresh...More

Call the restaurant and ask. You will prob have to visit on-site to purchase unless they can do it over the phone or via their website.
