Good as always

We had the antipasto salad and the philly wrap. Both were tasty and good. The portions are large and we took half of each home. The prices are very good. Service is always attentive.

Though I did not have pizza here, I did get the opportunity to try some of their wings and cheese sticks. The items had been pre-ordered several days before the requested date. Unfortunately when we went to pick up the wings and sticks at the scheduled time the wings evidently had been given to someone else. We had to wait... More

Ordered delivery from TBC last night. Ceasar Salad was good. The Extra Large Deluxe Pizza was more like a medium , sliced in to many slices (some were slivers not slices) . The ingredients were very few & the pizza was dry not cheesy. $45+ dollars for a salad & pizza which is supposed to have sausage , peperoni, onions,... More

Garlic rolls were flavorful, however, dough was undercooked. Pizza is extremely overpriced for the size and it did not have any flavor. Again, dough was raw. Ordered a calzone, great flavor, BUT slightly burned in the outside, DOUGH WAS RAW !!! Chicken wings are another rip off.....over priced, not very fresh, tasted like freezer burned. My local (and much closer... More

Fantastic Pizza and Pasta Plates-always too much for 1 sitting-be ready to take home. The pizza is extremely tasty-we had veggie and cheese pies. The garlic rolls (you can never have enough garlic) are the best. I had chicken parm and it was excellent. Great atmosphere, be ready to wait in line at primetime.

This was the second time I have gone and both times I had been brought there by my local friends and they could not be more correct. Nothing fancy, just a great local find. This is not an overpriced tourist joint but I guarantee you will feel comfortable here none the less. The staff was running as fast as they... More

I love the Big Cheese. I was born in Miami, and this is a classic Pizza and Pasta spot locals love, and few tourists find. However, it's easy to find. But best of all, is the kitchen crew. They are busy, busy, busy, but never too busy to help you when you walk up to the take out counter. My... More
