We were a party of 4 and had lunch here. The food was delicious! We loved both the Cauliflower and the artichoke appetizers! The salads were great as was the pizza. Only dish that was less than stellar was the meatloaf. I would definitely recommend!!

The cauliflower app was our favorite. Blackened chicken too spicy. Flatbread pizzas are good. Meatloaf OK.
