Pizza Place

“If you are hungry for pizza but not the restaurant chain verity, try Bella Luna. Great seating area or eat at the bar (they also have great drink options served by great bartenders). I haven't had a bad pizza there but a couple of favorites are: The Don, Bella Bianca, and the Ring of Fire.”

New American Restaurant

A block from Court Square and other downtown attractions. “Our space, our meals and our service reflect what we believe a creative American restaurant can be. Our menus explore a broad spectrum of styles, traditions and flavors while celebrating the bounty of the Shenandoah Valley—meals made with fresh ingredients and thoughtful flavors.” They have a great bar, too.”
