Baked Items

Probably some of the best ziti I've had. They seem to really excel at the baked Italian dishes. Pizza so so.

Needed food to be delivered after a wake. (We live 60 miles away) Found Irene's on trip advisor. They faxed the catering menu over to me. I phoned the order 48 hours ahead of time. Very helpful on the phone, they explained everything. Delivered and set up on time, ready for the immediate family after the wake. Food was awesome... More

The food and service never vary. It's hot or cold and filling. More than you should eat and not a dish to be washed in sight. Pasta, pizza, grinders and a decent fried fish. Its a good spot for the meal after a sports event or to take mom & dad for their early dinner to be certain they'll have... More

Was on business in this area and looking for some local flavor.Started driving through town and saw this place. It seemed to be very busy with local traffic. Went in and found a very large menu. After a few i chose a pizza. It was fantastic. I will eat here next time im in that area.

I went there, because I had fond memories of the Pizza Kitchen that used to be there before. I was so disappointed. The didn't feel like it had been updated since the 80s and the place honestly smelled strongly like a hospital. The Grinder was nothing special, but maybe I couldn't taste it because of the overwhelming smell. It's too... More

Been going there for years, the last few times it has not been up to par. Must depend who is working in the kitchen. May need a different supervisor watching the cooks. Should be same quality all the time..

Good atmosphere, server was very friendly and helpful. Husband had the Pepperoni Calzone, I had the Fettuccini ala Carbonara - VERY good! So much food, it fed us for 2 more meals. Reasonably priced. We'll be back.
