“Excellent local pizza place. Its BYOB and doesn’t have a lot of tables inside during the winter so I recommend ordering and picking your meal up to enjoy at home. Our favorites are the margarita pizza, house salad (it's the dressing really), chicken parm, and penne vodka.”

“Rowayton's best kept local secret. Coffee is surprisingly good. Family friendly spot, with short-order breakfast and lunch options at a lower price point vs Rowayton market. Kids will instinctively gravitate to the ice cream freezer in front. Two outside tables on the street with several more tables tucked away inside in the back. ”
