Pizza Place
“I recommend the German Village location, primarily because it's next to a great spirits/cocktail bar called Curio. This place focuses on using local ingredients to make fresh, hand-tossed pizzas. Their appetizers are a little more fine-dining than expected for a pizza place and definitely add to the quality of this spot. I've eaten here a few times and yet to have something I didn't want more of.”

American Restaurant
“The location of our first date (it was probably a bit excessive but we are a bit excessive)! Amazing little gem tucked away in German Village with a ton of character, charm and warm feelings. Make sure you order the ravioli - you won't forget it. ”

“It's right downstairs! They have delicious brunch and good dinner (gyros, especially), as well as a decent beer menu. It doesn't get more convenient than this. They also do carry-out.”
