Authentic Italian food and best pizza in Raleigh. I have been eating pizza from here every since my mother worked for one of the local Cameron Village banks when I was in high school. Let's just say I am old enough to have grandchildren. Never been disappointed.

We went here for Cameron Villages Open House. It was delicious!! The portions were very large and I asked for extra marinara sauce and got it!  The salad was wonderful and the meal was piping hot! Service, great!  I had a really good experience here, as did everyone else at our table! 5 stars! Thank you for a memorable meal. Can't wait to go back sometime.

We go here every week and love it. Go Monday's or Tuesdays if you don't like crowds. I love the people and the food especially the pizza.
