Decided to go to this restaurant before going to a show. It was packed as it usually is. The wait was not longer than 15 min. they move pretty fast. Food was excellent, Hot and plentiful. We have come here several times and will repeat coming here often. Wait staff is very friendly. All make a point of saying hello... More

the Big Cheese in Cranston, RI is a great place for lunch or dinner, and just as great a place for take out food. The pizza by far is the best I have ever had. We always order enough to take some home for the next day. There is a lot to choose from on their very extensive menu and... More

The restaurant itself could use some updating but the food and the service is fantastic. The pizza is amazing and all their dishes taste like good old-fashioned Italian home-cooking. Love their calzones, sandwiches and salad too!

I love the sauce at the Big Cheese!!! I love the sauce on the pizza and on their meatball sandwich. The place is always busy and the staff are very friendly!! The pizza is delicious!!! Well worth a visit!!!!!!! They have a good size parking lot behind the restaurant which is easier than parking on the main road.

Nice relaxed atmosphere. You couldn't have a nicer staff and if its your first time ask for suggestions and they will point you in the right direction. The food is great! All of the breads baked fresh! I live on Fed Hill and its nice to escape all the craziness and have a nice meal in a laid back place... More

Have never eaten in the restaurant, but we get take out from here all the time. Have never been disappointed. The pizzas are delicious, even the healthy wheat ones are good. The highlight of the meal is the salad!!! Always fresh, generous portions, and the BEST dressing, bar none! Sometimes I order the pizza just for the salad.

Convenient and good when you need a carbohydrate fix; just your basic neighborhood pizza and pasta place. Could use a remodel, especially the dining room which is too dark.

Very good pizza (even wheat pizza) and Greek salad. We usually get it to go. Inexpensive and great for a quick family meal.

This place has been here for several years and every time I go back to R. I my lady and I go to the Big Cheese Pub. The service is always great, the pizza is hot and it's a nice relaxing time. They have plenty of other Italian food and it's all great too. It's always worth the trip.
