Baked Items

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

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.

I love Irene's! Great food!! I've always had it to go, can't comment on decor, atmosphere, waitstaff, etc. I love their salads! The antipasto salad is loaded with meats! House pasta is awesome also! Food is a bit pricey.

This was an ordinary place for breakfast that looked more tempting when reading the menu posted outside. It took a few minutes to get seated, even though there were a handful of available tables. There were only two waitresses servicing the whole place and the place was pretty packed by locals on a Sunday morning. Once seated, it took up... More
