I whole heartedly agree with other reviews that Starlite has gone down hill. I've been going to Starlite for about seven years ago. Whenever I'd go in, it was always packed and had a good vibe. Went in today lunch at about 12:15 and the service was AWFUL!!! the place was empty and for good reason. The service has been... More

A friend had recommended this restaurant so we decided to give it a second chance. Everyone deserves a second chance, right? We had been here once before (about 10 years ago) and the food was horrendous as was the service. I'm sorry. Did I say 'was'? I meant IS 10 years later and the service still sucks and the food...

Let me preface this by saying we are not complainers. If you look at my other reviews you'll see that most of them are positive. That said, here goes..... We went here the first time about 10 years ago and didn't like it but we know it gets crowded on the weekends so we decided to give it another shot.... More

You would think the owners would "get it" after all the poor service reviews. Been here many times and the service is consistently horrible. Our drinks stay empty while they ignore it, no one ever once asked how everything was, and never once a "thank you." The entire staff is grumpy. Never once saw any one of them smile. What... More

Was kinda surprised when picking up a pizza here and it was almost $20. Apparently black olive + extra cheese at Starlite is now a very spendy proposition. It's not bad pizza, but its very expensive for what it is. Certainly not the best in the area. I see most of the reviews here are people who seem to intimately... More

Brought my family here for pizza and loved it! Great pizza experience. If you love classic old school Italian, this is your spot. I read a prior review and tried the artichoke and fried calamari with a pizza and it was great! Order yours we'll done and you won't be disappointed! Looked like family run and it showed. Reasonably priced... More

As most of my followers know, I write a lot of reviews on all the sites, and I am sad to say this is one of the poorest kept restaurants I have been to in the last 3 years. It is such a shame because it had such a good reputation many years ago. The owners son met us at... More

Tonight was the first time back to Starlite in years and it is everything I expected. Great food and great family atmosphere with great people. The place is run by family and it shows in there dedication and attention to care. They made my family feel like I was a part of there family. They have updated their menu to... More

I was Frank's customer in the restaurant, and I remain Patty's customer today. As I know both parties and was there when Starlite was sold, I think Frank's daughter is out of line. As I recall when Frank became ill, Patty and her family kept that business going. As my family ate there on average 3 times per week, I... More
