Great food, big portions, and the best pizza in NJ, therefore the country. I always get the Tony salad, a red pie and a white with sausage and I'm a happy man.

I've always had great food here. From lunch time Italian sub, pizza, etc. it can't be best. The full meals are terrific. Very generous portions, a wide selection, and in your budget. You'll probably be unable to finish and bring home the leftovers for lunch tomorrow. Monday nights it's create your own pasta night: your choice of pasta, sauce and... More

A friendly neighborhood Italian restaurant--great prices, great food. We passed it by for years, but were so glad we finally stepped in. BYOB!

This restaurant is dirty upon entering the establishment. The kitchen is an eyesore! The food was greasy and overcooked and the service was terrible.

I enjoy the food here quite a bit, and the portions (to me) are sharing size. The problem is the entrance way and crowds, and belch! Even ordering pickup is a hassle because you have to deal with that tiny crowded (meaning crowded with 4 people) space to pay and pickup your stuff. Just wish it was all al little... More

I wanted to like it so much ... It had that crammed neighborhood favorite look. However the service was slow and not very friendly and the food, while plentiful, was a bit blend and buffet tasting. Ok but not more than that.

After years of enjoying their take out pizze, I finally tried eating at the restaurant -- now I understand why people have been disappointed. While the pizza remains good, other things on the menu are definitely not. What's more the restaurant is crowded, poorly kept and dirty. And to boot its pricey and they don't take credit cards. We had... More

From the moment we walk into what is easily our favorite place in town we feel welcomed and loved! Usually Billy, the owner, is at the desk to greet us and Val takes us to our table. We know all the wait staff and they check to see if we want our usual beverages. And open our BYO wine. We... More
