The only non Pizza place in Trip Advisor for Italian. Was a little hesitant based on some of the service reviews. HOWEVER our server couldn’t have done a better more attentive job. We both had pasta and in both the pasta was properly al dente....More

Great atmosphere lots of parking because it is located at the Mayflower Mall. Service was great, we had warm little loaves of bread while we waited for our snacks. Very clean staff very friendly. Great for large groups. Easy access for older folks.

Very friendly staff. Good service. Even with an outdoor patio, service was no different than being inside. Very roomy restaurant that is well maintained.

The win-win combination of excellent pizza and service makes this an excellent place to eat. The server was very attentive. The food was also promptly served. I wish they had one of these in my town.

Went there yesterday, July 11, 2017, and the food was really good. We ordered pizza and salad and have to say we truly enjoyed it.

I was there twice for lunch last week. The food was good but the service was s-l-o-w. It wasn't busy either and they seemed to be staffed properly. Pretty slow to get to us though.
