This place is great any time of year! Cold weather - there's a nice fireplace. Warmer weather - there's a great outdoor patio! Great selection of pizzas, salads, and daily specials.

We returned for Sunday dinner (kudos for being open) after a couple of years away. The service was above average. While flavorful, three different soups were served warm rather than hot. The bread was bland. The Tuscan beef stew was favorable, but the Bocuse Scallops...More
