    Food and drinks took awhile to arrive. My pizza came a good 10 min before my date's fish & chips... I had to ask when it was coming. Server was completely oblivious that it was missing. Overall B-

    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!

    The wait staff is fun! We even got a few photos with them.

    It's an Italian restaurant, but there's no pasta. Crazy!

    Paul · April 27, 2014
  • Bernadette B.

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

    Bernadette Baum · April 25, 2014
  • Randy M.

    As advertised, the pizzas are excellent. Great atmosphere either inside or out overlooking the crowds and fountain below. Ask for Henry. Great, efficient server.

  • Randall K.

    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...)

    Chicken pesto and prosciutto + fig pizzas were great. You can order two diff halves on one pie of you can't make up your mind.

  • Laura B.

    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$); not worth it with regular price (14$).

    Laura B. · November 16, 2013
  • Frank W.

    You must try the pork chop

    Frank Wilson · September 19, 2013
  • Diana M.

    The bread pudding is magical - make sure to save room!

    Diana Montante · August 25, 2013
  • Alexander W.

    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 :)

    Superb pizzas cooked in a wood- fired oven, thin n crispy and you can taste every ingredient. No greasy stodge here! Ask for a private balcony overlooking the square if there's only two dining.
