Called to place a large dinner order to eat in, and it wad promptly ready when we arrived. Always delicious, and they accommodated our dairy free needs. Love this place!

Being British I am not used to the potion sizes in the US so struggled with my small pizza. I had to admit defeat and wave a flag. It was as nice as any pizza I have had anywhere in Italy and very tasty. A good choice and a reasonable price.

All food is basically like home cooking. Great Italian recipes. Owner takes a personal interest in his diners and the quality of food served. It is like dining at home. I absolutely recommend.

I have been eating their food for almost 50 years. My favorite are the meatballs, whether grinders or the meatball platter they are the best. You can usually find Jason, the owner, working in the kitchen or at the cash register checking to make sure everything is running smoothly. Staff is always willing to do whatever it takes.

We went for a pizza prior to going to see a movie. The waitress informed us a mistake was made on our order and it would be another 20 minutes before our pizza came out. we told her we did not have much more time so she gave us a free cheese pizza already made. Just great customer service.

We have been going here for more than 30 years. Best thick crust pizza around. Good selection of grinders and their lasagna is excellent.

Can't say anything about the pizza because I had spaghetti & meatballs & my husband had ravioli. My dish was great. The serving was enormous & the meatballs were the size of baseballs. I gave my husband 1/2 of one & I could barely finish the other half. The sauce was very good. We will enjoy a couple more servings... More
