You can order any pizza you want or you have the choice of many slices already to be served. Thick crust, thin crust, vege, meat. They have 3 choices of soup and calzones to order. Friendly staff and great outdoor patio.

Their pizza is anywhere from ok to ehh and one slice and a beer $9- $10, really? Get over yourselves. And your garlic rolls have extremely gone downhill.

I've written a few reviews praising this lunch spot, strongly encouraging people to try the soup. Our office has been ordering several bowls of the polo loco soup to bring back to the office on Wednesdays. The last couple of times, we have been extremely disappointed. For some reason, they have changed the recipe, and the soup has gotten greasy... More

If you are looking for a thick juicy steak, this is not your place. But if you are looking for a Classic Italian spot. This is your spot. Every pasta shape you ever heard of, and a wide variety of sauces to team with. Many salad choices. I had beet with feta cheese over greens, topped by a tasty vinaigrette.... More

Busy when we went for lunch. Line moved along at a good pace. Cafeteria style. Grab your tray and move down the line. Stuffed pizza was definitely better than the normal pizza.

If you look at the title you may think, just another pizza joint. But it is more than that. Well prepared Italian dishes, like the mussels appetizer, and the Stromboli. Give them a try, you will be back.

I visited Lena's First & Last for the first time. I'm from out of state and my daughter attends college nearby. I was on a mission to find good quality pizza that I could provide my daughter's sports team after a home meet. My daughter suggested Lena's and I read other reviews and thought Lena's was the right choice. I... More

I used to visit this place weekly having taught just down the street at Parkville School and it was always fantastic! A recent visit with the kiddos on a Friday night and my how things have changed. Forewarning ....it's cafeteria style. Staff is friendly, place is clean but the food was average at best. Garlic knots were a fond memory... More

This restaurant is near my office, and I go for lunch periodically. I have reviewed it before. Service is cafeteria style, so it provides an alternative to fast food restaurants that provides food quickly, but the food is actually real food. The pizza is already made, but the volume of business is high enough that it is fresh. The staff... More
