    Prosciutto white pizza and steakhouse sandwich were awesome. If you're not into hoppy beers, the hangar 24 is great in the summer. I enjoyed my Kentucky peach cocktail as well. Highly recommended!

    Pizza was good enough. The test of our food arrived cold and steak overdone and under seasoned.

    Definitely try the Prosciutto & Fig pizza! We ordered a large and made it half Veggie and half Prosciutto & Fig. Perfect combination if you like garlic (which is heavy on the Veggie...)

    As an Italian, pizzas don't taste like Italian pizzas at all. The pepperoni one was not bad though, only too oily. The price is very good during happy hour (6$); not worth it with regular price (14$).

    Omg: get the prosciutto and fog pizza and substitute Gorgonzola with burrata cheese. I was dying so good!!! White sangria goes well with that, is delicious, and sufficiently sized! You're welcome :)
