My parents and I always get this pizza to go, but we decided to go in and eat for once..bad idea. The employees were young and sloppy, and a homeless man walked in and announced that he would wash our cars that were parked outside for money..then walked table to table asking people for money. The staff just stayed in... More

The pizza was good ....we had to ask for it "well done" because we saw it being brought out to the other tables and we noticed the cheese was barely melted and we prefer a bit if golden brown. The italian beef was very good, reasonably priced and a generous size portion on a crusty type baguette. Yum! We will... More

We found this place by accident about 5 years ago. The food is very good and so is the service. It reminds me of the food and service I got in the 1970's which is for the most part, gone today. My wife and I have tried several items on the menu and we have never been disappointed. If you... More

My family ate here on 6-25-14 and it was a good experience. I had the manicotti and the other three members had ravioli. We all loved the food and our waitress was very attentive. The restaurant was empty aside from one other table during the lunch hour so our service was very fast. We would eat here often if we... More

The stuffed pasta shells and tortellini here are awesome here. My dad goes here all the time on his lunch break and so decided to take my sister and I and then after that we came back with my mom. My mom was a little unsure about the place upon seeing the outside however once we were inside it was... More

The food is very good, but the serving size isn't very large. Parking can be difficult because it is located on a corner with few parking spots. Give it a try or try a carry out. It is reasonably priced.

This is one of the best thin crust pizzas you'll find in Springfield. North end location. Great family owned business. An excellent choice for really good pizza.

The pizza was very good and the spaghetti was excellent. Don't go for the atmosphere--very small dining room with basic tables and metal padded chairs. Waitress was very nice. We were from out of town and it was obvious that this place has some very loyal customers--and for good reason.
