We stopped by to get a pizza to go based on the recommendation from our neighbors. The restaurant itself was underwhelming...dark, floor was dirty with a bit of trash, greeting was "sit anywhere" while walking away...It was as if we were bothering them.

Family of 5 had excellent lunch. There are 6 pasta lunch specials plus pizza by the slice. Bread is served hot with butter and minced raw garlic on side! Greek salad was delicious.

First, I have to say that I have never ordered or eaten food from this restaurant, however, based on my experience with them, I never will. Several weeks ago, my husband, daughter and I were out walking our dogs one evening after dark. My husband is disabled so when we go out for walks, he is on an electric scooter/cart.... More
