My wife walked in on a Monday night and were seated immediately. We ordered a small salad and pasta. The salad was their mixed greens with a very tasty dressing. The bread was only so so. The pasta marinara was lacking in tomato flavor but still warm and fulfilling a comfort food need. Diamond was a great waitress.

We wanted to have dinner as a large group and they were able to get tables set up and have us seated very quickly although they were very busy. The service has always been good and the food is wonderful. Not just pizza, but tasty Italian dishes to satisfy a variety of diners.

Solid tasty food in a spacious relaxed setting. Their desserts are phenomenal too. When it's hot out and you're done shopping on Park St. for the day, this is the place to relax.

I always enjoy their linguine with clam sauce. Creating your own pizza is always fun. Forego the garlic rolls as that will just fill you up. Make sure you leave room for dessert - affogato. Good quality for a chain restaurant. Casual. Good for families.

I'm not a big Italian fan. So when I go to an Italian restaurant I expect more. So this is not my favorite place to go and the food was not exceptional. They get 3 stars since there is plenty to choose from on the menu but nothing special. But they have plenty of specials everyday and it's a family... More

Food was awesome. We were a large party (of 9) so seated in the back, next to food prep area ("next to the kitchen"). Lot of clattering and banging. Would've been nice to sit outside on the patio but it was a bit chilly.
