Just stopped in for a quick bite. Just reaaly wanted a slice or two but I believe they only sell whole pizzas. Pizza was enough for my wife and I to get two lunches out of. Very good food with friendly staff.

If you like Howard's Steakhouse, you will like this place. It is a pizza place owned by Howards and shares the back deck with them. The pizzas are great and the bar makes great albeit strong drinks.

We have been to Best Italian many times and have loved the food every time. The service is so friendly. My husband and I drive 85 miles one way just for the baked ziti. It's worth every mile.

This restaurant was recommended to us by a mailman delivering mail. We were undecided where to eat and he mentioned this establishment. It was in an out of the way location and we probably would not have seen it otherwise. The front door glass was...More
