“Good, authentic pizza!”

Reviewed 27 April 2016

Very good stop for lunch as indicated by the number of "to go" orders picked up by people working in the area. Store located in a nondescript building within an industrial park.

Service is very good. Evan as you are gruffly greeted by the owner. Pizzas are very good. Sauce has a wonderfully fresh flavors and toppings really enhance the experience. Love the salads!

Next, I want to try the Strombolis. My one nit is the sub rolls.

I prefer subs on rolls made from fresh pizza dough (or the chewy Philadelphia-style rolls) that hold up to oil & vinegar and/or slippery Cheesesteaks. Italian Delight uses regular sub rolls. These are okay, but do not hold up well, especially when you are heading back to the office! Paying $7.50 for hot subs should have a better roll.

The Pizza is to die for perfect dough, the sauce isn't to sweet like other places and when you order extra cheese you get extra cheese. What you'll also be sure to get is a nasty greeting if any. You walk through the door smile on your face and your greeted by an older heavy set man sitting on a stool behind the counter that just stares you down. You have to introduce yourself and say what your there to pick up. He swipes your card hands you the food and sits back down. No hello, good bye no nothing. Even if you leave money in the tip jar nothing.

At first you take it personal but its not you. Everyone in my office has had the same experience. And they've gained a reputation for just being nasty. Heaven forbid you need to customize an item its like personal offense is taken. And though the pizza is good its way over priced. There are 10 other pizza places in a 5 mile radius and they charge $3 dollars more per item than their closest competitor. When you taste the pizza it kind of makes up for it but the service you get makes you want to take your money else where.

I've literally seen someone pay step aside to wait for their order get there number called go to take the plate and be accused of not paying. The person was screamed at by the owner dug through his wallet slapped the receipt on the counter to prove he paid and the only response was take your pizza and go.

This is the first restaurant I've encounter that blatantly disrespects all of their patrons but is still in business. I gladly take a step down in quality to get leaps and bounds better service.

While the pizza was pretty good the surly service left something to be desired as two employees were mouth battling in Italian and coming up for air and taking orders on phone and from line of customer. Counter guys walked by my order for five minutes before I had to ask for two now luck warm slices. With most places coming in under $7.00 for a two specialty slice and soda special, this $8.50 treat came with with a "pizza Nazi" floor show (with apologies to Seinfeld)

Food was absolutely amazing. I visited one day during a busy lunch and the food was made available fairly quickly. My family loved it. I'm definitely going to become as much of a "regular" as possible.

Went here with a few co-workers. The pizza was hot and fresh. Nothing particularly special about it, but the people were friendly and I'd definitely return.
