For 35 years, since our first kitchen opened in the Davis Square neighborhood of Somerville, MA, in 1981, we've been perfecting the art of brick oven cooking. From the beginning, we built a tradition of creating unique pizzas and pasta combinations. These recipes all share some very important things in common: they use only the freshest ingredients, and we take the time to make each by hand. It's a point of pride that you will never find a microwave in any of our restaurants. We start with the basics; our dough is made from scratch. Each day we light the fire in our signature brick oven; the heart of our restaurants; it initiates the aromas and warmth of the authentic Italian food to come. We start with the freshest, highest quality ingredients and are committed to allowing the true flavor of the food to come through. Our food is complemented with a great wine list and creative drink selections. Our team creates a high energy comfortable environment that calls to our guests to return again and again.
