This pizza joint is one of the best! Babe and I shared an antipasti salad and a small Cemeno's special and as usually were completely satisfied.

This is a fun restaurant. It is comfortable and there is a lot of menu items other than pizza. But my favorite is the cheeseburger pizza. The blend of the cheeses with the hamburger and baco is perfect

Loved their service, pizza, and drinks! My husband is Italian and is very picky when it comes to pizza and he absolutely loved this place! The crust was perfectly thin and the cheese on the pizza was just right (not greasy, not soggy, it did not fall off the pizza)!

Great pizza served fast. Stopped for lunch. Ordered pizza by the slice. The server suggested we order a small pizza as it was past one o'clock and the slices were made at eleven o'clock. The server said that if we had been there earlier say eleven thirty that the slices would be a good choice. We took the advice and... More

Large establishment, great for groups and occasions, large bar area equipped with TVs for viewing sports. Good bar service, average food, moderate prices.

This is a neighborhood staple - but it could be MUCH better (PLEASE ADD ON A BEER GARDEN!!!!) My husband enjoys Green Line, and since they have it on tap, we tend to visit often. I don't eat their food - so I can't comment from personal experience. I know they don't have the best options, and their menu has... More

I can't tell you about the food. Called for delivery I was hung up on twice, then most of order taken and put on hold for 7 minutes. So I hung up. It seems they are to busy to care.

Family owned Pizza and Italian food restaurant. Food is always great, service vary by waitress, but they need to do a major cleaning of the carpets and dining room chairs.

Always meet my dad here occasionally and we always get the ncahos which are very good. Usually order the meatball sandwich with fries and it is excellent. Pizza is also very good!!

The pizza was sloppy, the crust totally limp and da sausage appeared to have loads of filler. This place was so recommended, but a total let down. We also were overcharged (over 5.00) and the manager could give a rats butt that we had a problem. She wanted to "tab" us the overcharge so therefore they eventually make more money... More
