Carry Out with Flavor

My husband and I pick up carry out from here a lot and it is always tasty. Just be careful it usually comes out of the bag piping hot - in a good way!

This is our "go to" restaurant when we don't feel like cooking at home. The staff are friendly & efficient. The food is good. I especially like the chicken rolatini with the herbs & prosciuttino, mushrooms, herbs, fontina cheese inside. I think the portions are huge & I always take home enough food for 2 more lunches. Some may really... More

This is an order yourself restaurant. Nothing fancy but the food was tasty. The servings were adequate. Nice if you are in a hurry.

I eat here frequently because one of writers' groups often has dinner at the restaurant before their meetings at the library up the street. The restaurant serves standard Italian fare, mostly pasta and pizza. Dinners come with brochetta and salad. You order at a counter, and they bring your food to you. The food is tasty, and the portions are... More

Food is great, prices are reasonable. Would be interested if they finished developing the bar and turned it to table service but love the quick casual. Only issue is the volume of signs/notes on the doors. No cleats, no this, no that... this would be an ideal place to bring a sports team after a game but they forbid cleats/spikes... More

Good pizza, gluten-free option. One complaint: they wouldn't let me phone an order ahead of time for eating in. Pizzas take a while to cook, and with kids it's sometimes nice to call ahead to minimize the wait. Of course, they will take an order for carryout by phone, but not for eating in. Why not, Chef Paolino?

Great pizza and a large variety of Italian dinners and subs. Eat in, delivery or pick up yourself. The sausage is very tasty.

Stopped for lunch. The veal marsala was outstanding. I could have licked the dish clean. The flavor was wonderful. Will be back soon.
