The food was very good. The server forgot 2 of 3 requests. It was very loud mainly due to kids playing games on cell phone.

The menu consists of a handful of small plates, soups, salads, pasta dishes, and deserts, but the main focus are the wood fired pizzas. There are about a dozen house options with build-your-own available too. The daily specials offer more appetizers, daily soup, and some additional specialty pizzas. Bottle beer and glass/bottle wine options are available.

The pizza is the main focus and they do a strong job. Ingredients are fresh with creative options in addition to traditional favorites. The pizzas are available in a personal 4-slice or a larger 8-slice option.

The interior has a clean nice look. Service staff is friendly although busy at times. The hard floors and open ceilings make for a noisy environment at peak times.

If you are in the area, it is worth stopping in for a pie!

The server was forgetful of requests. It seemed as if the restaurant was slightly understaffed or requires more computers to process payment. Other than that, food was amazing and came out quickly. Value was amazing. I will be coming back! If you haven't tried this place out, it's time to try them out ASAP!

We made reservations and were glad we did. It is small but our table was waiting for us. We had the Mediterranean Pizza and a bottle of Chianti. We love the unique pizzas on the menu along with other Italian dishes. We will definitely be back.

The staff was friendly and warm. The heat from the brick oven warmed the entire place with an amazing smell of fresh pizza. The owner struck up a conversation but kept it light so we were able to enjoy our meal. i'm not in the Detroit area often but the next time i am, i will dine here.

The pizza was excellent and I will definitely return. I wish they would have a antipasta salad. It’s more of a plate which I would prefer a salad. But I would still definitely go back for the pizza.

The pizza was perfect. I’ve experienced allot of brick oven pizza and this is ranked at the top. I felt like I was in a small town in Italy, amazing. The owner Mario stoped by our table and shared a few joke as well as their enormous cannolis.
Highly recommend this hidden gem!

We ordered a family salad that cost $17 plus change and the salad was 99% spring mix . You literally had a handful of croutons and a few tomatoes. Probably cost $3.00 to make !! Totally not happy with it and I can go elsewhere where you actually can get a salad loaded with items in it for around $9.00 for a family . I won’t come back .
