“Great Food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

The food at Polito's is quite good, just expect to pay a little more than an average pizza restaurant. One of our favorite local pizza places.

“NY Style Pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

This is the closest pizza to NY style you’re going to get in this area. The garlic pizza with added ricotta cheese is our favorite. Their Stromboli is packed with ingredients and their red sauce is full of garlic and chunky tomatoes. We’ve been going to this place since they were over on Grape Road and it’s very consistent. I’m not sure why some people say it’s not kid friendly, there’s a game room in the back and when they are busy there’s always kids running around. This place is one of a couple “go to” pizza places we frequent.

“Delicious, massive portions”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

Great pizza and wonderful Italian dishes. The portions are enormous and most can easily be shared. Their pizza by the slice is gigantic. Get that and the salad bar and you're stuffed. Friendly, fun wait staff.

“Avoid this place!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

The food is terrible- and the crowd is a bunch of yelling, drunk sports idiots- not at all family friendly.

“Polut-toes”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

I don't like this place!
I ordered spaghetti with meat sauce and the cooked just dumped some grey hamburger on top of my spaghetti!!!
It wasn't even mixed-in with the sauce- he just dumped it on top!
The waitress was rude too!
Stay away.
