The soups are homemade and simply delicious here. My favorite is stracciatella, an Italian egg drop soup. The Italian tuna salad (no mayo) is great, especially with some feta added. Orders nearly always come with homemade breadsticks and they'll typically give them for free for munching while waiting. The people are consistently friendly and orders are accurate. There isn't much... More

I get it a lot in the winter. They have lots of choices, all made there I believe. Pizza is good, but I go for the soup. Actually I think lots of folks do because I've never been in there without seeing lots of steaming bowls. Highly recommend.

The good:Clean, bright food venue,happy, conscientious staff.Pizza was better than your typical house of pizza.Bread sticks are excellent. The bad:Ravioli,came out not fully cooked or tasty,eggplant parmesan so-so The Ugly:No apparent restrooms which is fine for a a pizza place, but not for a supposed restorante .Maybe there is something in back if you ask. Lesson learned: 100% 5 star... More

This is limited in that I always get the same thing, pan pizza with za-za sauce. I can go on but let me say that its simply THE BEST- zesty and make sure others you will be close with has some too-they do not scrimp on the garlic!

This is a great family-run restaurant that offers awesome Italian food. They have everything from delicious homemade soups & sandwiches to pizza and full Italian meals. Their eggplant is outstanding, and my favorite! The part many people don't know is that it's BYOB! You can relax with a bottle of wine and a great dinner. It also does a large... More

Great hole-in-the-wall restaurant that has the best Italian food in the town full of Italian restaurants. Zazza pizza is excellent. Pasta is always delicious, especially with chicken or veal. Always start with the antipasto with the house dressing. The prices are a little high but the quality is worth it.

A nice place. This is a little neighborhood place that does a lot of takeout and has some inside seating. This is not the place to go for a romantic dinner; it’s more of a takeout place or a great place for an informal dinner on the fly or for those with some smaller children. I think you can purchase...
