Love, love love it! When our son graduates, we will miss visiting this place. Try the pesto pizza if you're a garlic fan. Try any pizza as they are all phenomenal.

We ate here after cross country skiing all day. It was a really neat old building that over looked the river in downtown Houghton. I had the lasagna , it was very good ,they give you a huge portion. My husband had the spaghetti and had leftovers also. Service was good. Nice clean bathrooms.

Great food and service. Good view if you can get a window table. Sometimes hard to get a table since they are very busy.
