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

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

After a band rehearsal last night, I stopped into Starlight for something to eat, as I hadn't had dinner. It was just past 10:00 on a Monday night, and they were closing up, but the cook offered to make me something to eat. I chose a meatbal parm sandwich. I know they serve great thin crust pizza here, but I... More

We go there for take-out pizza. We like their thin crust whole wheat pizza. We haven't eaten in the restaurant that often. The parking lot is bad. Drivers have to enter and exit on two main roads at an intersection. There isn't much parking, and it awkwardly arranged.

We visited this restaurant a couple of weeks ago and while the pizza itself was good although a bit pricey the stench of the waiter serving us was unbelievable. My husband and I had to actually hold our breath whenever he passed by. My husband ended up squeezing the juice of the lemon in his soda and putting it on... More
