“decent pizza, fast service, pleasant atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

The usual range of choice for this chain: tasty and well-cooked pizza washed down with good local beer, fast service with a friendly manner, and a pleasant place to linger.

“Quick and Easy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

This was my first time and it was exactly what I was hoping for. Quick, just order at bar Sat down and service was excellent, refills on the house. Pizza and Salad was very good and reasonably priced....will go back.

“no big deal anymore”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

Il Vicino has slowly been increasing the numbers of restaurants to make it a small regional chain. That would be great to me if the food was still worth stopping in for. Nothing is bad, but nothing is special anymore. You probably won't hate your pizza, but don't expect Napoli-style wood-fired pizza. The menu doesn't seem to have changed much over the year, so I don't know why the crust no longer seems to be able to handle the toppings. If I wanted something soggy, I'd get my pizza from the freezer section.

“Consistently Delicious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

I eat here often. The wood-fired pizza is always good. My favorites are the carne molta and the #6. The salads are delicious as well. I usually enjoy a glass of chianti with mine. The prices are reasonable and the service is attentive.

“Another Great Pizza & Salad!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013 via mobile

With all the competion of pizza joints, this place can't be beat! Thin crust with lots of whatever you want! I love the "Bianca' with garlic and green chili... Simply awesome! Keep it up, no one comes close to your pizza!
