Stopped here for lunch after visiting the shops in downtown Portsmouth. The host explained the difference between the main floor and the basement which is basically pizza downstairs from what I could understand.

We didn’t want pizza so we stayed on the street level main floor. We started with the clam chowder which was very good, real pieces of clams in the chowder.

We ordered the beet salad as our main dishes which was fresh and tasty. I recommend both dishes as both were delicious. The atmosphere is casual with lots of variety on the menu.

The three of us stopped by for a quick small bite about lunchtime and took a window table on the street level restaurant. (There is also A pizza oven and restaurant in the basement, and a nightclub on the 3rd floor.) we ordered buffalo chicken tenders, mussels and artichoke dip. The food was really good, larger portions, low price. We were full and happy out the door. Would return for lunch - of appetizers - for sure.

This was a perfect spot for a gathering of old friends. We were downstairs and enjoyed good wine and some of the best pizza I have had in a long time. Not too crowded, great service and good value!

There is so much to this seemingly simple restaurant it’s truly amazing. My family went for dinner in the main dining room on the first floor and also take out from the downstairs. Both were great. Take out was really convenient.
