“We often go here, hang out on the street seating, watch the people go by and have a drink before going to the Atrium out back for Pizza ala Italy. (As close as you are going to find hereabouts). I wouldnt go for a quick bite though because the take their time here. Prices are decent and has just about everything besides the Italian Flair.”
