I would give it a lower grade if the option was provided. Absolutely terrible. Pizza arrived well over an hour after ordered and it was cold. Will never order from this place again. Called the store and they were also very rude on the phone. Save your money and order from another place.

we have been going there for years.

The new menu where in addition to a basic Italian meny you can get GREAT soups, GREAT salads and a GREAT selection of Pannins but............

The wait for the food is intolerable. it doesn't seem to matter if the restaurant is crowded or empty.. the wait is the same and the problem seems to be with the kitchen and not the waitstaff.

it's a shame because this could be a regular stop for me and my family but on a Tuesday night when there were 10 covers, it should not have taken 1H 15 for an ap of soups and a "main" of salads and a panini

Wine and Beer prices are average but the price for drinks is astronomical - $9.00 for a thimbleful of premium vodka - 1/3rd to 1/4 of the amount you get in competitive local restaurants for the same price

This place should be packed every night and should be a goldmine for the owners if they only paid attention to what is going on

Met some old friends for dinner. Worked out great as things were quiet, and we ate and drank leisurely, and were able to talk with a noisy atmosphere. Waiter was helpful, and offered us the early bird special although it was a little late. The garlic bread was fabulous, we finished every last crumb! You may order a la carte, or dinner which was very reasonably priced. Everyone was pleased with their meal, from eggplant parmigiana to, veal Marsala. Coffee and dessert finished off a good meal. Although not gourmet, it was delicious and satisfying. I'd return there if I were in the area.

Great service, and delicious pizza. They have toppings like: ziti, margarita, chicken marsala, and grilled veggie. The only negative is the rude high school students that are often there during early lunch. Wait until 1230.
