I have heard and have been told great pizza, but we went for a meal and ordered the spaghetti and lasagna. Prices seemed a little high, but let's give it a chance. I ordered the spaghetti and asked for meat sause, was told there would...More

I was there yesterday and one of the server's attitudes ruined the birthday we were there to celebrate. After dinner and the checks she made it very clear the tips she received weren't what she expected. She was very sarcastic and was expressing how mad...More

Went to this restaurant with friends after church. My wife had the stuffed pizza and I had a Calzone. Food was excellent and plenty to go around. Sampled the pasta from another plate at the table - vodka sauce was excellent

This is an informal place for pizza, salads, wings, etc. We just stopped in for a "snack" and ordered their antipasto. It was delicious, fresh and HUGE. Excellent value. Stuffed Chicago-style pizza served to the next table looked excellent. We will return to try it!

We just dropped in to have a quick bite, but we are pizza enthusiasts at heart and Polito's is now on our excellent pizza list. Great pizza, great customer service, and great prices to boot.

I thought the place was pretty good. The salad bar is small but is good, and we ordered the Chicago cheese pizza. Spongy, buttery crust. Would come back if we lived closer

I want to like this place because it's a family owned business, but their service is terrible. We frequently order a calzone for carry-out, ordering it 1-2 hours in advance of when we will pick it up. Twice now, I've gotten there at the time...More
