My hubby and I frequent this place often. Though located in the Concord Mall, the dining area in the back of the restaurant provides the necessary seclusion to make you feel like you aren't in the mall. Most of the wait staff is friendly but, time to time, I don't feel that there is the necessary hostessing occurring, which means you may wait a few minutes, even when not busy to be seated. It does not deter us from going there though. I love their specialty pizzas, in particular the margarita pizza, which I sub the olives for fresh basil, along with the other toppings of plum tomato and prosciutto...mm-mm, so good! They don't have a side salad, not unless you get an entree, but still keep going back. Whether you order just pizza or an entree, you get the bread sticks, with a few other surprises along with it, like tonight a little crescent style roll with pepperoni in it. The dipping sauce is a little thin for my liking but the taste is quite fine. We were just at this place last week and I was craving pizza and wanted to go here. We ordered 3 slices of Sicilian pizza for my hubby (notorious over eater and only finished two), one specialty pizza, onion rings (quite plentiful for two) and a garden salad (we shared it) and soft drinks for a grand total of 38 and some change. Our waitress, Christina, was on top of her game. We, didn't have to ask for anything because she was already taking care of things before we needed them.
