Cozy, but sometimes slow or inconsistent service

The lentil soup (appetizer) is very good, and the garlic bread is ok. The pizzas are good, and made fresh. The service varies; sometimes quick, other times we wait a while. The house wine is a good value. They have an indoor seating area and a patio; the patio can be breezy/chilly.

Eaten here several times because it is close by my house, and every time I wonder why I did so. I'm not a fan of their pizza, and the pasta is meh. Sausage sandwich was overcooked. The only dish I've had that I could recommend is the meatball sandwich.

It has been many years since we have visited this restaurant. Last time I saw no reason to go back but this time we were convinced to try it so we did. Well, the service was wonderful, the ambience was nice, and the food was outstanding. We were a party of four. The chicken parmesan was one of the best... More

Food is good, service is quick. Ambiance is good also. It's by a main avenue so it does get noise. Plenty of parking.

So many Italian restaurants have gone total high-brow and pretentious. I love Hank's because it's kitschy Italian, like when I was growing up. And the staff is very friendly, and it's cozy inside -- although the patio's preferable, when weather permits. We always get the large veggie pizza, which has everything but the kitchen sink on it, and a pitcher... More

This is the second time we went to Hanks in 25 years. Now we know why it took us so long. We ate on the patio and the same light fixtures were broken (along with a few more), the fountain was oddly out of sync, the tables were wobbly, the pretty little lights strung across the patio were all dark...

I grew up in this area and Hank's has been there for as long as I can remember, but I hadn't been to the restaurant in many years. I visited last weekend with my dad and his wife for Father's Day dinner (this restaurant was their choice). First, I have to say that the garlic bread is wonderful--highly recommended that... More

We loved eating at Hank's when we lived in the South Bay-on our most recent visit we had take out pizza and salad and were happy to taste that the yummy Hank's sauce hasn't changed one bit! We also enjoyed take out salads (Cesar and Antipasto-sp?) but thought they both had a bit too much salad dressing for our taste...it's... More

I tried this neighborhood italian restaurant again since our usual place is closed Mondays and Hank's is open. Ordered pizza and spaghetti to-go. Spaghetti was to my liking. Unfortunately the pizza was not right. The components above the crust were exactly like what your would find on a "normal" pizza; cheese, tomato sauce, mushrooms, etc. The crust however reminded me... More
