If you want great Italian food, good prices and a friendly staff, this is the place to go. There are several similar restaurants around but this one is the best.

This is one of those local pizzeria places that also has a restaurant area. The food is decent, the service is good and the prices are moderate, and it's BYOB. Is it the best in the area? No, but it's far from the worst. A decent choice for going to a place that's different from one's usual choice of restaurant.

We went there with a group of eight. Although the servers were nice and polite, they didn't serve us completely. Some of us were half-way done with our dinner before they were served (and the place was almost empty). The taste of the food was OK; you could do better with Meza Luna or Tratoria just 1/2 mile away.

This is one of the better Italian restaurants around. Great food and good friendly service. The pizza is great compared to the other restaurants we have eaten at. You will not be disappointed.

We ordered 3 heroes to go. Eggplant Sophia Veal cutlet parm. Chicken parm. Well done fries. Everything was under cooked. The mozzarella was not melted just sliced on all 3 heroes. The bread wasn't toasted. And the fries were soggy and not fresh We were told pickup is 35 minutes. Seems like they slapped it together and rushed it out.... More

Yes, it's pretty much your typical NJ strip mall Italian restaurant, with the ubiquitous NJ pizza, nothing unusual on the menu...but that being said, I do like this place and have eaten here on multiple occasions. There is nothing really to complain about except that it is, well, unexceptional. Pizza is good, I also like their eggplant parm sandwich. Pleasant... More

Horrible experience. DO NOT purchase anything over the phone using a credit card. He stores your credit card information and displays it for anyone to see. When I tried to point this out the manager/owner screamed at me that I had nothing else to do but cause problems. Obviously this idiot has never heard of identify theft. Not anyone that... More

When I asked for a gluten-free menu, they told me to just pick anything on the regular menu and they would convert it for me. That's the most inclusive policy I ever encountered and we have returned for the fine food many times since.
