We both ordered a pizza...

I chose the ‘Capricciosa Vera – Napoli, bocconcini, leg ham, mushroom, olives, artichoke ($18.50 – regular size)’ pizza. The puffy crust on this pizza was amazing! Sometimes I disregard the crusts of pizzas if I’m full, but the crust on this pizza was an absolute highlight. The toppings were pretty good but needed a punch of garlic.  

My dining companion opted for the ‘Calabrese – Napoli, mozzarella, sopressa salami, artichoke, olives, roasted peppers, chilli ($18.50 – regular size)’ pizza. This fiery pizza was also satisfying and could have easily fed two.
