Personal Remarks:
This is my second time here.  Last time we ordered the "Pizza Prociutto e Uova".  It was forgetful, so this time it was time to try something different.  We had 3 people and we came here for brunch.  Their brunch menu is quite ingenious, the toppings for the pizzas were ingredients that you would normally eat during brunch.

Their complimentary bread dip was very tasty and we kept trying to guess what it was made of.  We were not able to figure out what it was made of because we finished it so fast.

Ordering 2 pizza's to share between one guy and two girls was too much.  We ordered too much food.  If you have three, an appetizer plus one pizza is enough for brunch.

The dough and crust is the thin crust style.  They try to keep things authentic here.  The taste of the crust is great at first but as the meal went on the dough became difficult to eat.  It became chewy and you had to give it a few extra bites and pull.  We do not eat slow either, it just seemed like the food got cold very quick.  Other than that the taste of the pizza toppings was decent.  The distribution of the toppings could have been more generous. 

While we were pulling the salmon pizza apart, there were a couple of occasions that we noticed not every slice got salmon.  So, some slices were just the sauce underneath and dough.

The Calamari was not spectacular for $11.00.  You could do without it. 

The Polpetti was not great or memorable.  I would tell you to order something else.  The salmon was good an unique that it is worth a recommendation.
