Had some good pizza and a nice salad. Also got some basic pasta that was pretty good.The staff was friendly and the place was ok. An old pinball machine that was broken and an old video game in the corner don't help the ambiance.

Not a bad pizza although I liked their original sauce better than the newer owners' mix. Less zing. The garden pesto is great but a little watery. Another good one - the bbq chicken with cilantro I have enjoyed since 1983 when Joe, the handicapped...More
