Very pleasant experience. The pizza was just perfect, the owners took the time to visit with us. Kid friendly, clean, reasonably priced. Highly recommend this little gem.

We really enjoyed this Italian restaurant although it was a bit difficult to find. The food was very good and well cooked and the lady serving was very attentive and helpful. This is a small and atmospheric establishment and very good value
