I ordered the rigatoni and meatballs. The sauce and meatballs were Super Spicy! And the menu gave no indication that the meal was spicy. I am not one to have digestive issues but half way through my meal, I started to get heart burn. I was VERY Disappointed and in pain. I immediately left to get some antacid. My friends... More

This is a restaurant that I've visited probably six times or more over the past few years. However, I had not been in some time (since the TV show). While the pizza (all we ordered) was still decent; these are some of the items that will cause me not to visit again: hostess at front desk continually blowing bright green... More

My husband and I came across Aponte’s a couple of years ago and were immediately hooked. We had no idea this gem was sitting right under our nose. Hands down, best pizza you can get in Mason. Then came Restaurant Impossible which turned the place upside down and it seemed as quickly as we found Aponte’s, we lost them. The... More

I reviewed Aponte's before he was featured on the Restaurant Impossible TV show so it was time to see what had changed. I still think he does a nice pizza and this time we also tried the lasagna. A big portion of lasagna was served up and there was plenty left over to take home. The interior remodeling work from... More

Still has good NJ/NY style pizza. Service was good and atmosphere is good. Pizza was excellent before Robert Irvine got his hands on the recipe.

We stopped at this restaurant for a Saturday Lunch because we had heard it was on one of the big food TV shows. Our feelings were mixed. Pros: The Italian salad was a complete A+, very good dressing, salad portion was large enough to share, greens all fresh. The dressing was tasty and I heard others comment the same. The... More

Very busy Friday night but worth the wait. Had garlic bread, traditional pepperoni pizza and a house sub. All were fresh and delicious! Sub and pizza were quite large! Our server was fantastic (the owner) and could not have been more attentive or gracious. Will definitely be back to try more offerings.

Hot off the airing of the Restaurant Impossible episode that was on 8/25/2013 we revisited Aponte's. I must say it was well needed. We started off with the Pizza Dumplings which were not like they were on the show. these were folded like a Crab Rangoon, which was smaller and kind of a let down. I would like to think... More

The owner needs to decide whether it's going to be a takeout restaurant or sitdown restaurant because the Kitchen does not have capacity to do both simultaneously. We were there for an hour with a simple order and finally the waitress told us they were completely flooded with takeout orders we left 10 bucks on the table and walked out... More
