There are two parts of this restaurant. At the front you can order a slice, a pizza pie or other Italian specialties to go or you can sit on a stool for a quick bite. If you're looking for a more leisurely meal, head toward the back of the restaurant for a more traditional meal. You can still order... read more

Food is great but you definitely pay for it, I would understand it more If it was a beautiful place but it's not...it would also help if it didn't feel like they were rushing you out of there. You can barely put your fork down without them trying to come take your food off the table to wrap it to... More

Definitely try the buffalo slice! Their dough is delicious and cradles the sauce and chicken nicely. Always fresh ingredients and nice size chunks of chicken. Regular slices are good too!

OMG, never had this happen to me... If been there 5 times with family when in town. The food is average, nothing more. However the amount of food they serve is very large which is typical of many Italian restaurants on Long Island. So I like the others ask for a go bag. Wrapped my lasagna up in the go... More

Went on to pick-up an order that was phoned in prior. The counter help had a very tough time with English, but had no problem at all with attitudes. They decided to start screaming out NEXT....NEXT...NEXT to the rear of the line. I said "you've helped 4 people from the rear, while I'm still here" OK, walks away and continues... More

I eat hear often and decided to write a review. Of all restaurants, the food here is very consistent and consistently good. Between my wife and I, we have had almost everything on its menu and there is truly nothing we have not liked. The food is fresh, prepared well and the portions are just right. We never leave with...

Sometimes they forget a side of sauce or extra dressing when delivering but they always have utensils, cups, plates, napkins since they know I order to an office. My only issue is the salads are very overpriced. A grilled chicken salad is over $13, and they used to put more chicken on the salad then they do now. The dressing... More

Their pizza is average with a big price to it. Their food is pizzeria quality at best. Nothing special about this pizza place. There's better pizza and food for the same price with in a four block radius which blows this place away. Why would you eat here.

Many times the place is packed & there is a good reason for that. The service is good, the portions are good, and the food is absolutely spectacular. We eat here often and take-away equally as often. The best pasta with White Clam Sauce I ever ate in my life. The bread is warm, the wine is cold, & so... More
