A great restaurant located in a historically landmarked Firehouse. They are categorized as a steakhouse and known for their on-point service in beautifully appointed dining rooms. I don't eat red meat but I love this place for their seafood, poultry and side dishes. I used to stop in for lunch (limited menu with great offerings, none-the-less) in the bar room and really enjoyed the tin ceilings and the beautiful old bar and paneled walls. During the summers, dine al-fresco in their beautiful patio garden. They have a wonderful wine list along with delicious cocktails. They just reopened on February 3, 2017 after a fire (ironically) destroyed the restaurant in December 2014.

$$ Because of their thin-crust pizza. They have a great crust; both chewy and crispy. We order the margherita pizza with sauce and love it! It is our new favorite spot for pizza, their dining room is small and intimate for couples or small groups. During the summer, they offer cafe seating outside like many of the restaurants along Division Street. Their pasta dishes are very tasty but hands down their pizza is great and even better when eaten at the restaurant. Nothing in the area tops the taste of Via Carducci La Sorella's thin crust pizza!
