I would have given the review 5 stars because the food was so great, however our server was very slow and failed to hardly ever check on us. We found ourselves waiting on her all evening. After waiting and even making eye contact we had to use hand signals to flag her down just to order dessert. It was a... More

I am so sorry to say that I did not enjoy this restaurant. We waited an extremely long time for service and nothing was prepared as it was outlined on the menu. I received a cold meal and my fiancé was underwhelmed by his meal, as it was cold and bread was stale. We will try again!

Where to begin: food or service. Service was wonderful, friendly and attentive without being intrusive. Food: the Blue crab dip-must try because it is so good. I had the Sunday Roasted Chicken and it was amazing. My spouse had the Chicken Ravioli and it was over the top delicious. We took the Bananas Foster home to save for later. Get... More

We LOVE this place. Been eating here since they opened years ago. Love their menu and REALLY love their specials. My husband is from the northeast & they often have seafood that exceeds his expectation. Had a few parties here as well. Great place for celebrating too. Had a few "special" nights here also and our memories of those evenings... More

Was invited by some friends so decided to go.. parking is on the street in the city courthouse area. Didn't haveto park too far away, just about a block away. Area seems safe. Very noisy place and seemed a bit pricy. Service was excellent! Food was hot and fairly quick, even thou it was very busy. I'm not a big... More

Great place for lunch or dinner. I especially like their pizza. The service is great and the stroll around the old downtown is great.

They are at the top of the list. The food is cooked in wood burning ovens and it rocks. I have had everything from a porterhouse steak to swordfish. I have never had a bad meal.

The atmosphere of the restaurant is unique and rustic. Being able to see the wood oven is fun, but due to the very ope concept of the dining and kitchen the noise level is high and can be challenging to have a conversation if the restaurant is busy. The service is great, and the food is good. The prices are... More

Good drinks (oh, the spicy margarita!!!) and pizza to die for. Often we sit at the bar, watch the chef's load the woodburning oven banter with other guests. But tables are good too! The owner is an engaging guy, but let me be clear. He is not chatty. Has a restaurant to run and they are busy. Now the bad... More

Description
Our hand-tossed pies are baked in a 900° wood oven. Our chefs then top them with organic ingredients, local produce and imported cheeses. Local favorites are the Truffle Pie with tartufo, potato, pancetta, rosemary and egg; the Standard with pomodoraccio tomatoes, fresh mozzarella and basil; and most of all - our Crab Dip. Everything is cooked to perfection 100% in our wood fire oven.
