We liked this place so much, after our first visit while we were in town, we came back instead of finding a new place. The service was great, very friendly and quick staff. The house wine was even good. My wife has many dietary restrictions, but the staff just made the changes on the fly perfectly. The pizza is great,... More

I live locally and have been eating here for 10 years. This used to be our go to place for pizza and pasta. However, the restaurant has gone way downhill and prices uphill. They now cut corners with the ingredients in their meatballs substituting some sort of filler and not all meat and you can taste the difference. My guess... More

Not my favorite place for a couple reasons. Food was good but not outstanding and service was horrible. Took forever to get our drinks, appetizer never made it all, and the entrees came at different times so my dinner date & I ate separately while the other watched..... Not a good first impression.

Went here with the whole family. Kids had pizza and loved it. My wife loved her chicken parmigiana and I had the sword fish special with muscles and clams. All were great, I highly recommend!

This was the recommended place for great pizza. Very good recommendation. Nothing fancy but from what I was told a popular local spot.

We ate here our first evening in Carlsbad, on the recommendation of our hotel staff. The portion size was large, enough for my husband and I to have supper a second night. I had the seafood salad, which had lots of seafood, plus vegetables (onions, carrots, etc.) and my husband had a pasta dish with giant meatballs. The restaurant has... More

Forced to doing a return to reviews on tripadvisor by my simply worst meal in a month. From a salad swimming in vinegar, thumped down on the table, to a main (chicken Marco Polo, I opted for vegetables instead of noodles) swimming in sauce, and mozzarella cheese. Piping hot, but veg not cooked (and I like them a bit crisp),... More
