“Excellent Sandwiches”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

We really enjoyed our dellicious Brickini sandwiches, sauces and seasonings were perfect. What wasn't perfect was the wait time for our order to arrive, we wondered if our server forgot to place our order and were ready to leave. Parking was right outside the door, no stairs to contend with; wheelchair and walker friendly.

We are happy to hear that you enjoy our sandwiches, but sorry to hear that the service was lacking. We have had a large staff changeover recently and are working hard to rebuild and train a new staff of people. While we see so much potential in their abilities, we recognize that there is always room for improvement. Thank you for your comment; it helps us to pinpoint our weaknesses so that we can serve you better.

“Consistently excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

I have eaten here countless times and have never been disappointed. It's a family pizza atmosphere, but with a rustic touch. The staff is friendly and the prices extremely reasonable. My favorite thing is the Mad Cow sandwich on Fatti bread. Absolutely delicious!

I have been fortunate enough to have eaten pizza in many places in the world including Italy. This pizza is excellent, well worth a road trip

“Great Pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

We were passing by and decided to order take-out.
We are always searching for a great pizza and..... we might have found it !!
The thin crust was perfectly baked, the sauce was full of flavor ( we order extra , extra sauce wherever we go), the toppings were plentiful. = Delicious!!
We certainly plan to return soon.

“Solid Pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

This place and Illiano's are the only game in town. They have a real wood oven. Worth a try. Sometimes a little heavy on the cheese. I ask for 1/2 the cheese sometimes.
