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. The gnocchi... read more

It's difficult to find good pizza in this area but the Reservoir Tavern has been a staple in the area when it comes to pizza. The staff is super friendly, starting with the owner and it trickles down to tall the employees. We generally sit at the bar at night where Vinny and Franny take care of us. If you... More

Six of us went for a family dinner earlier this week and our experience was mixed. Having read reviews promising gargantuan portions we decided to pass on the appetisers and just order main courses. Unfortunately this resulted in what seemed like a long wait for our food but that was OK. The various dishes we ordered elicited mixed responses. My... More

Went there this past Saturday upon the recommendation of friends. Were not disappointed. It is a small place, easy to miss if you are not looking for it. The service and food were really great. The portion size was enough that we had to take some home. The meal was delicious, but it was tough to turn down dessert. The... More

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...
