Very good brick oven pizza with fresh tomato sauce & mozzarella unlike many places that use shredded cheese. Only whole pies available as no slices are served here. Brooklyn salad is also excellent.

When I moved from NYC to NJ 8 years ago, I was on a quest for the best pizza in the north jersey area. This place is excellent. Their crust has a very nice flavor and is slightly fluffy. The pepperoni is thick and small, just like at Patsy's and Angelos in NYC. It's not crappy pizza. This is the... More

We wanted to give this place another try, we walked in and the manager (not very nice) said we had to order right then or wait 45 minutes for a pizza, as the chef would be taking a break, never heard of this, 4 other people walked in and left when they heard 45 minutes. He acted as though we... More

Been here a few times pizza is good but the service is lacking. Our recent visit we walked out because after being seated our waitress never came over to take our order but instead went to the table of a party that came in after us. Even though the pizza is good, I feel the service stinks.

The pizza here is very good but the attitude of the staff is not. The wait staff is ok they do try but they have become so popular that the customer service touch has been lost. It is a shame I dined here frequently over the years but since this past summer decided enough is enough there are other pizza... More

They have great pizza & garlic knots. Place is decorated Italian style with the checkered tablecloths etc. Staff is extremely nice & helpful. They have a small bar in the corner but it's just for the staff to get your beer etc. Place does get crowded & it's not a very big place.

We've been here a few times now. It's a local place with a good reputation - which is justifiable. The Pizza is spectacular. Seriously - even as leftovers. Order a large and take the rest home. Just keep an eye on where they seat you. The little added section with the lower ceiling separated from the main dining room is... More

I rarely invite friends out for pizza, as pizza is a personal preference but after reading the previous reviews I gave this place a try. The 7 of us showed up last Saturday afternoon, were nicely greeted and attended to. The atmosphere was warm and had an Italian restaurant feel as opposed to a swift, modern fast in and out.... More
