Fodor's Review

Pizza is the claim to fame here, baked in a wood-fired clay oven, and served in a casual garden patio and a cool upstairs rancho. The German pizza baker can make only six individual pizzas at a time, but it's worth the wait for thin-crust pies heaped with toppings. The menu also includes shrimp, lobster, and paella. For something a little different, try the German-style pork in beer sauce or a French meat fondue. While you wait for your meal, you can enjoy the birds flitting in the garden by day, or in the evening have a drink in the bar, which is popular with locals. Sundays there's brunch starting at 10 am.
