Not too much to write home about

We had dinner there for the first time recently. My wife had the Chicken Marsala, which I must say was tasty! I had a pizza that was only so-so. The restaurant was a little drab. Not much excitement at all. There were very few customers the evening we were there, so the waiter was quite attentive... read more

A favorite of Virginia Tech students and faculty alike. Located across from the campus. Our group had dinner prior to a concert at the Moss Performing Arts Center. The staff was aware of our concert time and had us in and out very comfortably. My wife had scallop fettuccini, HUGE juicy scallops. I had linguine calamari. Our tab came to... More

We've been coming to this restaurant since it opened more than eight years ago and we've never been disappointed. Their pizza is the best we've tasted and the other items on the menu are certainly the best Italian dishes around. My husband loves the lamb chops and I love the seafood pasta. We always go at least once a month... More

My husband and I were both in the mood for authentic Italian and I was not in the mood to start making pasta. I checked out restaurants on TripAdvisor, made a couple of calls and eventually landed here. We had wanted to be there around 12:30pm but due to a delayed appointment we didn't arrive until 1:10pm. When called I... More

Ceritano's is absolutely horrible. The service was terrible and the pizza was mediocre at best. The two brother waiters were the most unhappy, rude waiters I've ever met. Avoid this place!

Genuine Italian food - the brick over pizza is great, and pasta is home made and really tasty. You will have to accept that the ambience is not in the same level as the prices.

Seems like people either really like it or hate it. I think it's great. Love the pizza - Neapolitan style. Mussels on pasta excellent.

A friend wanted water and was denied initially, became angry and voiced her opinion using some profound language, then given bottled water. She did make the rash decision of giving the owner "the bird" and then cursing him. He came around the bar and grabbed her forcefully from behind and on the shoulders and tried to drag her out the...

Food is fresh and delicious but generally too expensive to feed my family here very often. However the lunch buffet is an excellent value. Highlights include several varieties of fresh pizza and pasta, handmade meatballs, chicken parmesan, stuffed shells, salmon, salad. Fresh gelato is outstanding but not included in the buffet. The Italian owners seem to be having mixed results... More
