    Small restaurant. Lots of great small plates and pizza to share. The restaurant was full and very loud. The noise level was a bit overwhelming to me at times, but overall, food and service was good. If you’re in the area it’s a good spot to eat.

    We had a wonderful dinner. Ferris was our server and he was so attentive! We started with tuna carpaccio, shoshito peppers and the bread. Both aiolis for the peppers and bread were amazing. Of course we had to have a pizza so we ordered the hot honey pizza with pepperoni and hot honey. Everything was spectacular and we definitely will be back.

    Location is beautiful, feels like youre dining on a street in europe. unfortunately the gf pizza crust is just ok. the regular pizza crust looked delicious. waiter forgot to put in our food order and even after checking in with the staff a few times, they didnt realize the error until an hour had gone by after we finished our apps. Pricey for not great service.

    Excellent food- best pizza ever! Really think it is overpriced- all items included. Noise level was high plus- no need to add music in background!
