This restaurant has a super friendly staff. It's got a very casual, neighborhood feel. The pastas are great, and their happy hour specials are awesome!

This was about the third time we ordered for pickup. As usual there was no greeting upon entering, only "are you here for pickup?" When leaving no comment or thanks. This place is lacking in friendly customer service. The food is so-so. Today's Lunch Marinara...More

The menu says "authentic NY style thin crust"...which, no, not even close. It is much thicker than NY style and more bready. However, we liked the pesto linguine and my husband loved the Chicken Parmigiana.
