Though advertised as a pizzeria, where this place really shines through is its calzones and antipasti. It's a family-owned restaurant that has been passed down, so some of the recipes are the same ones that have been used for decades. You must order any one of the calzones available. They are the largest and steamiest you will find in the city, and when you are thinking about mixing it up from the typical pizza or pasta dish, this can be the perfect way to do it. The house wine is good, and the staff is more than friendly--you'll want to get a table outside so you can enjoy the view and the people walking by.
