Great pizza

One of the few sit down pizza places left. Service is friendly. Pizza is good. Prices are pretty good. Definitely a good place to take the family or a group.

Politos is always good! Must try the calzones with BOTH types of cheese and of course the Vodka Rigatoni! They will also serve any of their pasta dishes with this great sauce. Even their chicken wings taste better than the norm. Also their Antipasto salad is one of my favorites. We've had events from family dinners to book group here... More

I can't even decide where to start with how amazing Polito's is! The outside may not look like much, but the food will blow you away! The rigatoni in vodka is their specialty and by far my favorite food! The prices are low and the portions are large. It has a good salad bar and awesome beer specials. You won't... More

Visiting from out of town and decided to stop in for dinner. A Thursday night and there were quite a few customers---always a good sign. Good special--buy one pasta dish, get the other half off. A tempting special as they had many good pasta dishes to choose from, but we were set on eating pizza. We tried the cheese/garlic bread... More

The portions were huge and allowed us to bring home left overs. The calzone with ricotta and mozzarella cheese reminded me of NYC. We enjoyed the fettuccine, baked ziti, and cheese ravioli. They were all perfect for our family. One of our favorites: the zeppoles. Our server was all smiles and gave us a great customer service experience.

Ate here with a friend tonight. She's a local that loves this place. I followed her lead and got the salad bar and we went halfsies on a pizza. Loved the salad bar and the semi-moist and flavorful croutons. Not a fancy salad bar but a good one that had two kinds of lettuce - iceberg and another, darker leaf.... More

I called to get food to go on a Sunday & who ever answered the phone probably needs to be taught how to talk to customers. I will not be back till I get some polite phone edict. It was a woman I don't know if that narrows the search

Love their delicious pizza. Also have a couple Stromboli favorites: vege and meat lovers. They're HUGE. Friendly wait staff. Salad bar. Great food, most items seem to be sized for sharing unless you're an NFL lineman. We don't have kids but almost always see families there with kids. Take your kids. I think they'll enjoy it.

My daughter noticed the NY Football Giants poster. I missed it because I was fixed on the New Jersey style Stromboli on the menu. "Full belly" italian with huge serving sizes.
