Wanted to share Balestreri's with my husband. So, we came with our adult daughter about 5pm on a Thursday night. Hoped for the back dining room, but the host wisked us to the front room by the bar. Perhaps the other dining room was full....More

Always look forward to a meal at Balistreri's! You can count on delicious, thin crust, crispy pizza with fresh toppings! Enjoyed the special wine, an Italian Red which was tasty ($36). One big disappointment we should have expected: no Fried Eggplant on Fridays when they...More
