Almost didn't try this restaurant, I mean ANOTHER Italian? So glad we did. Stppoed in on a busy Saturday and the staff were very accommodating. They made space for us and the food arrived promptly. We had pizza, salad, and ravioli. LOVED all of it....More

After enjoying an art display two blocks from La Piazza, we decided to try this place. We were so glad we did as it was the best pizza we'd had in a long time. We'll go back next time we're in town.
