    • This place is AWESOME.  Not only is the food fresh, the service great but I loved the fact that the owner is incredibly nice. For all you East-coasters out there, this is a shout out that you must try the food. The food is made from all fresh ingredients and you can tell from one bite. I had the margarita pizza which was so incredibly delicious I had to go back the next day and get another. The caesar salad was true caesar dressing and was delicious.

    • Master chef Alex from Philly is on to something new in San Diego. We started with the Italian chop salad, which had a touch of Italy with every bite. The chef sent out his Pesto Perfecto crispy pizza. 2 thumbs up. Definitely will be back and recommending this new gem. Great job guys. 5 stars well deserved. “Made with love"

    • Fresh ingredients, friendly staff, and affordable cuisine, what more could you want. This modern take on Italian was so tasty. Their pesto sauce is incredible. You definitely should start with the garlic knots! I loved the ambiance and great service, I’ll definitely be back for more amazing pizza.

    • If you’re a pesto lover, this is the place for you!
      I don't think I've ever been so happy to write a five-star review. Let me just preface this by saying we ordered delivery. We ordered a Cesar salad, Caprese panini with bacon, and chicken parmesan pasta. Everything arrived in a timely manner and was absolutely delicious!
