“We had a surprise birthday party for my Aunt here. The staff was very helpful in coordinating the event. We had about 35 people there and it went off without a hitch. The food was delicious, the staff was friendly and always asking what they could do to help. We would come back in a heartbeat!” – Kevin S.
“Definitely not a cookie cutter restaurant. The food was absolutely fantastic at a reasonable price. Service was great!! Very nicely decorated which made for a relaxing atmosphere. I actually saw the owner take pre-busted table plates out of our servers hands so our server could keep chatting with us. That is someone who really cares about his establishment and employees. Awesome!!” – Andrew S.
“Delish lamb chops. Perfectly portioned pizza. Friendly waitstaff. Loved the open kitchen and seeing chef and the crew preparing the meals. First visit because we received a gift card; return visits because it’s just that good!” – Lisa R.
