A local favorite for good reason

We have been coming to the Reservoir for years now and have never been disappointed. Expect to wait for a table for about 1/2 hour as there is always a crowd on weekends and sometimes even weeknights. The food is excellent Italian cuisine served with a smile and in hearty portions.

There are many pizzerias in the area, but no pizza comes close to this.Love their sausage and love the crust. The cheese on the pizza is not to salty. We have returned there many times.

A little to much oil.Slicing of the pie was not accurate. They place a knife under bar pie when served,causing oil to shift.My server was great (experienced and prompt).Crust would have been perfect if it wasn't for the shifting of the oil.Price was average.Sauce was sweet and not bitter.Chesse was average quality.

Reservoir Tavern has been a regular for my wife and myself for years now. Just a great neighborhood tavern for some drinks and a great, great pie. Pretty good Italian food as well. Well, tonight we visited and something was amiss. The place looked the same - crowded and vibrant. But when we asked for our usual carafe of Chianti... More

The best sandwiches! The Ultimste and the Riviera Club are just the best sandwiches ever! Fresh pizza bread tops it off. Add a few toasties for an appetizer and split their homemade French fries and you will be in high cotton!

the pizza is exceptional, but they do not deliver, so you are forced to pick it up. the place is a mad house. it is restaurant and bar is always packed to the hilt. i suppose they have some sort of system but damned if i could figure out what it was. i wound up waiting for almost 10 minutes...

Always heard about the pizza at the tavern and finally got a chance to stop in to this local fixture (been in same spot since 1936). Pizza was fantastic, get the toasties which are toasted meatballs with a side of sauce. Friendly service, bar area was hopping for a Saturday afternoon. Absolutely worth a visit.

I give my lunch (the mezanone - $10.50) an average and my husband's (bar pizza with broccoli rage, garlic, and roasted peppers - $13.50) a very good. I ordered the stuffed eggplant from the appetizer menu - billed as a half eggplant (a very tiny eggplant) stuffed with mushrooms, roasted peppers, artichoke hearts). I figured a $10.50 portion would be... More

We ordered 2 large pies for pickup - the "large" looked big enough to feed 2 people. It was 1/2 the size of the box- almost looked like a domino's pie. Taste was just OK. Nothing to write home about. I've heard of others who absolutely love this place - I guess it's a hit or miss.
