“Local Institution”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2012

Family-owned and has been consistently good for many years. Sells by-the-slice pizza and they are known for their deep dish Sicilian pizza. Great calzones and strombolis.

“Steak and cheese”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2012

The steak and cheese sandwiches are good. I grew up in PA and know what a cheese steak is supposed to taste like.

“Consistently Good Food - Owned by Italian Family”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2010

There's a reason this place has been thriving for over 20 years . . . consistently good pizza, pasta, salads, and subs. No "chain" stuff - just really good Italian food. It's located inside the Ft. Henry Mall next to JCPenney's. You can order a custom piece of pizza by the slice, as well as whole ones, can't say enough about the hot subs. Tuna salad is great. I've been visiting this place since they opened their doors all those years ago. Viva Italian Village!

“Greasy pizza, unfriendly service.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2010

I worked in the mall for 3 years and I tried to like this place because I love italian food. Their pizza is so greasy that I would go through several paper towels trying to blot the grease that was pooled on top.

The subs and calzones are pretty decent but I'd say "nothing to write home about".

They are overpriced for what they are...a hole in the wall restaurant in a mall with unfriendly staff and run of the mill italian food. They are usually packed for lunch and dinner, herding people through like cattle.

On the other hand, their sister restaurant Rafaelles in Colonial Heights is good.
