“Just good food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

A little pricey but its all good; served really hot and taste like a real home made food! Amazed how people just come and go to get their to go pizza in boxes... stayed for more than an hour to enjoy food with family and noticed that people are coming in and out to eat inside or grab their orders that indicates that this is a ONE Good Place to eat.. Will come back when we pass by the place. ***** 5 Stars!

“If you're looking for a good calzone - get it here!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

I have to admit this is the only place I never worry about how my calzone is going to taste or look when it's served. I do wish they would make them bigger and that's the only reason I give it a 4 and not a 5. The cheese calzone and the marinara sauce they serve isn't that bad. Not the best, but I can't tell if it's homemade or not. There's always a crowd of couples, singles and families and I believe the owners are from New York. At least some of the employees ooze New York. I love shopping at Marshall's and TJ Maxx right next door and look forward to relaxing and stuffing myself with the only calzone in Houston I can find that doesn't tempt me to throw it against the wall.

“Great pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

Get the plain cheese. So simple and yet SO good. Just the right balance of sauce and cheese on a great crust. Their pepperoni is a bit greasy.

“Great "fast food" italian”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2012

I stopped by while in Houston for work, I had the caprese sandwich and a cannoli. I expected a deli sandwich, but they make it on the spot and it is more like a calzone. You get a lot of food for your buck. The cannoli was pretty good, creamy on the inside and crispy on the outside. The staff was super helpful and courteous. I would totally encourage everyone to check it out. You will not be disappointed.
