I love their pizza and pasta buffet! It's so good! And they have subs, lasagna, spaghetti and stuff as well! Get the Hearty Meat Pizza some time and it will make a believer out of you!

Whether we go in to eat or order for take out, the Giovanni (deluxe type pizza) is our favorite. It seems to have just the right amount of everything.
