A friend of mine told me about Paul Michael's brick oven pizza said it best pizza in town.. I'm sorry to say that I either came on a bad night or he was wrong. Slices looked dried out and they were. The crust was crispy and dry and the toppings were a little cheap on the portions. I tried a... More

This place has two rooms: one for counter service/take out and the other (much nicer, and somewhat romantic) for table service. I opted for table service and had Chicken Masala, with a choice of pasta or salad, from the lunch menu for $11.95. I added a Bud Light for $4.00. I chose salad: It was plentiful and the dressing it... More

Two of us had a dinner here. The atmosphere was good and the service was very good. The food was OK. I know better Italian restaurant than this place in Kew Gardens. I wish the pasta was not over cooked and vegetables were fresher. For the quality of the dish, the price was high. I do not know if I... More

The food is excellent you can't go wrong with either take out or dining in. the restaurant aspect is wonderful and they play live music on certain days. the food is fresh and served promptly. slices of pizza to go are a bit pricey (about $2.50 a slice) but they do make specialty slices as well which can be very...

Here you are formally greeted by the owner (Italian of course). Pizza and beer was our selection. Unfortunately no beers on tap. Thin crust with the main staple of pepperoni and sausage. Great ambience and plentyof parking in the strip mall.

Ordered the Granama (sp?) pizza last night. Very good. Rectangular pizza with mozzarella and basil. Very tasty and filling. Better than your average Jamaica/Kew Gardens pizza experience. However, I also ordered the calamari which was mediocre at best. It was too salty. But if the salt wasn't there then it would just be bland and chewy. I will order the... More
