Lunch

Food is really good. Nice and friendly atmosphere. The bread is really fresh. The salad was very crisp and the dressing is very good. Had penne with ricotta cheese is very good. Spaghetti and meatballs are very also.

It was the day that the storm winds hit hard in Cranston and Warwick, we had no power and no AC and thought that dinner out would be better than peanut butter sandwiches by candlelight. That was not the case. It was crazy busy .. Understandable for there were many without power. But, people were being 'herded and crammed' into... More

I really like their pizza and calzone selection. Always a good bargain and food is very good. One of the better pizza places in RI. I also enjoy their salads, generally large and very good!

I have been coming here for years and keep coming back. They have great food & staff. My favorite is The Greek Popeye on wheat which is a spinach calzone with a Greek salad stuffed in it....the dressing is incredible. It is delicious and I always look forward to it.

Ive been there several times, the pizza, salads and sandwiches always good. However the 1 time i order a calzone it was not good. Instead of being made to order it was soggy like it was microwaved. Stick to the pizza.

Went to pick up my order today and one of the girls behind the counter was bashing Obama, which is not a the issue in itself because everyone is entitled to their opinion, however she proceeded to treat me like I was invisible and greeted the customer who walk...

We went shopping in Cranston my husband wanted to see a special hockey game. I called and asked if they would put it on for him. They not only put it on but gave him a great seat. The food was old school Italian comfort food. The salad dressing is hands down the best i have ever had. Excellent whole... More

I have eaten here twice and it is always so good. Get the Italian style pizza and definitely have the mozzarella bread. Also their Italian salad dressing is the bomb. I think this is my newest place for pizza night.
