Excellent pizza and wonderful service. We came with a large group of people, which included children. The food came fast, was hot and freshly prepared. The server was friendly and upbeat. Great place for lunch and dinner.

Stopped in for dinner based on the reviews and was very disappointed. Someone had raved about the garlic knots which were over cooked and did not have any garlic whatsoever. We ordered the philly pizza which was just as bland and tasteless. Overall not worth the trip nor the time. I love pizza and eat it weekly and I would say this restaurant misses the mark on pizza.

The pizza lunch special is very good and one that is worth exploring. I was able to have an arugula salad with my pizza, and design it as well. Great crust and you can definitely tell the brick oven difference. Very accommodating staff who have fun with their jobs

We met some friends there today for a pizza lunch. Service was good, as was the pizza. We were on the lower level in the back by the pizza oven, not quite the ambiance as the upper but cute never the less. 2 12" pizzas and a juice for my little girl, $26. A bit pricey in my opinion, but many options to build your own custom pie.

The upstairs seating area looked very quaint, if we go back, we will make a point to eat there and sample their full menu.
