The outside gazebo is screened in and provides a nice quiet place to dine surrounded by nature. Make a reservation on weekends. It is always packed! Best pizza ever! The Palermo pizza has a thin crust and just the right amount of cheese. Delicious sauce. You won't be disappointed.

If I'm eating at the restaurant, I would probably choose Fried Calamari, and for take-outs, a piece of pepperoni and Palermo pizza. My daughters and granddaughter took me there for my birthday last year, as they knew it was my favorite place in the area. We all ordered something different, and shared. Everything was delicious! The waitress was good, and... More

Cesco's Pizza restaurant is an excellent place to find good Italian food and a great price. They present daily specials with a large menu to satisfy anybody's taste. Although the dining area is a somewhat small, they provide outside dining during fair weather months in a screened gazebo. They do a large take out business and also provide delivery service....

Food is always good! I especially like the Chicken Caprese sandwich and their mushroom soup. The place is small but they do have pavilion like addition that can hold a crowd. It has sides for the cooler weather. There is a bar and the employees in the place are friendly.

Cesco's is one of my favorite places to go, besides the awesome food they owner and staff are terrific. When you go there you are treated like family. Everyone really does know your name.

Had the Palermo Pizza and it was great. The place is small but always busy. Had a drink while waiting and they offered me some Italian bread with garlic and oil. Delicious. Will go back again.

Friendly greeting a good service are usually a good sign. And this was no exception. We had a very nice early dinner with my 4year old son. The decor is dark and pizzeria looking, but clean and that the most important. Plus, it's a pizzeria, so that's what it should look like. They had a very nice menu a full... More

Great food, great service, caring owner they could add 20 more tables and still be packed. Try the tortilla soup or cobb salad

Stop every weekend during summer for take out pizza. Nice for dinner on Sunday afternoon. You should call for reservations as restaurant is very busy. Full bar to eat at or for drinks. Great food at resonable prices. Very friendly local restaurant with good service.

The food is good. The menu is varied and there is something for everyone depending on the mood you are in. The inside is TIGHT and you will go home smelling of garlic, but so worth it. They do offer outside seating in the summer. Take out is always an option. And yes, the get CROWDED! And it is loud,... More
