Really solid pizza. I'm not usually a deep dish type of person (I generally prefer a new york style pizza), but this stuff was really good. I wasn't too greasy. Fresh ingredients, friendly service.

Casual Italian restaurant. Waiter was attentive, and the atmosphere was nice. The pasta Carbonara was incredible! It was the best I’ve had since I was in Italy. Definitely will come again.
