I’ve been here 6 times and 5 out of the 6 were bad experiences. Friends of mine always want to go so I begrudgingly keep going and it’s open on Shabbat. The food is nothing special and they seem to always mess up my order....More

We dined at Focaccia a few days ago. We've been there before and we really enjoy the welcoming, family feel of the place. For us, it's a cozy pizza place. As before,the pizza was great and the ambiance was inviting.

We went for dinner and enjoyed an excellent pizza and a delicious seafood pasta plate. Quick but accurate service. In warm weather it will be a roofless place.

In search of a restaurant on Shabbat and don’t want to wait till 7pm. This place is perfect for families and the food is great. Especially liked the lamb grilled sandwich. Spiced just right. Note: Not Kosher is that is what you need.
