Last Friday we met some friends their for dinner and the problem started with parking. The rear lot is so tiny you better have a compact... More

I had heard about Agatucci's for several years but had never been. Tonight we ordered fried ravioli as an appetizer and when it came, it tasted like they had taken it out of the freezer and microwaved it. Also, they do not give free refills of soft drinks. I had not seen that for a very long time. We ordered... More

Service was really slow and food was just mediocre - can accommodate larger groups and is family friendly.

We had a reservation for our large group that filled two tables in the back room. The thin crust pizza is the best I've ever had. We ordered several large pizzas and several baskets of their fried chicken. All was excellent with great service.

This place is like going back to the 60's- the decor is perfection- nice staff but the pizza is the star here- if you like thin crust then this will become your favorite !

No refills on soda and since I have to have diet soda and my wife hates diet soda we would have had to buy 2 pitchers to get refills. Sorry but will not come back because of this reason and this reason only!!!

Love their pizza and sauce. It's a family tradition. Get there early for a table, sometimes parking is a challenge-but well worth it.

This place has been a long time family favorite...we have eaten here as children and now it is one of our family's favorite places to eat. There is something here for everyone. My husband prefers the sausage pizza while some of us like the "special". The salads with the house dressing are delicious. Many do not realize that besides tasty... More

I can remember as a kid picking up a pizza at Agatucci's and sitting with the family down by the lagoon at Glen Oaks Park on warm summers nights. After 50 years I was thrilled to see this landmark was still there. Unlike Avantis, they decided to stay with one restaurant. The night I dropped in I sat at the... More
