Buffet lovers need to try this one. Although I have rated it average, it is a good place to fill your plate. The price is right and so is the food served. When in David, this is the place to go when you are hungry and don't want to spend a lot of cash.

When I find something I like at a restaurant I usually order the same thing. Here at this Pizzaria the Gran National I always have Spaghetti with Shrimp and the white sauce. And a Coca Cola.

We had headed over for the lunch buffet, but came about 10 minutes to late. Sat down and a very pleasant waiter came over and offered us menu's. My friend and I asked about pizza and the waiter was very positive. When we ordered the combo he said "extra cheese?". We were a little reluctant, but we assured us we... More

I have been eating here for 4 years and I like the white sauce Spaghetti with Shrimp. But 4 years ago this plate was $6.50 and then a few months later it went up and again it went up etc. etc. Now about 3 months ago it was $10.95

If you are staying at the hotel, the food in the primary restaurant is pretty good. There is a secondary restaurant that serves primarily Italian that is not bad either, but if you are expecting original Italian, you might be a little disappointed. Overall not bad, and better than most of what is available in David.
