The restaurant just opened in 2013 with a huge change in the menu in 2015 as a new chef was brought on board in 2015. Massimiliano Catizzone has transformed the former Venetian inspired menu overwhelmed by seafood into food influence by carne and pasta. 


2. Konnubio

Their homemade pizza dough with options ranging from ancient grain to whole wheat along with a cornucopia of eclectic toppings truly set them apart and keep patrons coming back. If this isn't enticing enough lets discuss their Italian craft beer pairings with each of the pizza offered on the menu.
