they have very good pizza in the outside part of the restaurant. The inside restaurant is very nice and serves good food that is large in size for normal to higher prices.

The owners are wonderful, friendly people at this restaurant. My family buys pizza to take out from here a couple of times a month. As a real treat we bring family and friends here for special occasions. They have a very nice restaurant in the back of the pizzeria. The food is always excellent. They do not accept reservations so... More

It was a Saturday nite and the place was very busy, service was great and the food was a 100 percent better than I have ever had from them. I used to take out from them all the time and than the food wasn't good. Now it is a 1000 percent better.

Have been to this restaurant several times, it's always a good meal. I've never had their pizza, but it looks good. Tonight I had the scallop appetizer special, and I would say its one of the best appetizers I've ever had. It had loose crab meat all around it, in a very tasty light sauce.

I have eaten here all my life. We have seen this place grow over the years. I have had some great meals here . On the other hand came here on special nights and not so good . The one thing I have found is the food seems to be better on weekends, I have no idea if the chefs... More

Don't waste your time and money here. If you're Italian or know good Italian food this is not the place to go. Food is flooded with too much garlic as if to diguise the poor quality of food.Not enough attention to food preperation and quality. Prices are as expensive as the finest Italian restaurants. Keep in mind this is a... More

We went to Carnival last night and were extremely disappointed! My husband and I ordered the mainstay LI Italian dinner... chicken parm. We each had two small chicken cutlets on our plates. The cutlets were pounded so thin all you saw when you cut it was a small sliver of white between two thick brown layers of fried breadcrumbs. In... More

We used to come here, then stopped coming a few years, but lately the food has been great. They don't accept reservations but we haven't had to wait. For the Prix Fix menu on Tues and Thurs you can get delicious appetizers of Mussels or Baby Eggplant, both wonderful. The salads are good, entrees of steak or etc are great,... More
