It's a shame a pizza shop can't make good pizza. We have ordered in the past and received pizza with a burnt bottom. Even when the pizza has not been burnt the crust is still tasteless. As in tastes like dry , thin card board. Our fav pizza place has always been Mack-n-Manco (still can't bring myself to call it... More

This is one of our go to places for pizza in Absecon. The owner is always nice and the food is great. Try the sausage pizza with green peppers. It's delicious!

Wow, so good! Tiny spot that seems to do a lot of delivery and carry-out, but we got one of the 10 or so tables right away. The food was really, really good - greeted with a couple pieces of complimentary bruschetta (and noticed the quality of the olive oil used on it), the loaf of bread was fantastic, as... More

Chose this place because of a. child's celiac disease and the food was great. Someone who was sure she would be eating plain hotdogs or tasteless rice pasta forever was pleasantly surprised to find eggplant parmigiana and several choices of gluten-free pasta (cheese or spinach ravioli included). Definitely not fancy but the food is worth it, especially if you're near... More

First time visit, was recommended by friends-we thoroughly enjoyed this tiny, hidden gem. Soup was fresh and hot, the antipasto salad was enough for two to share and the pasta and eggplant rolletini delicious. My husband mentioned that he wanted to try a slice of pizza since we had been told how good it was. The waitress (owner)brought back a... More

Don't be fooled this small family parlor is HUGE on quality and great tasting pizza. The servings are huge and the seating is quaint with the marble top tables. Perfect for you and yours to be close... While eating perfect pizza. Bottom line... This is truly a great place and spotless clean. Serious Italian flavoring 😎

I only had a cheesesteak from this place and did not care for it. Also way over priced. Not sure how the pizza is but not going to pay the price for it.

We stopped in for a bite to eat and were happy we did. The salad was very fresh and tasty. They brought delicious bread to the table after we ordered. We ordered the garlic knots as an appetizers, and we could have eaten those all night - they were fantastic. We had ordered a regular pizza and a Sicilian slice.... More

This is a little neighborhood restaurant. One could just drive by thinking it's just a pizza place. Surprise stop in and enjoy a really good meal with out the hassle.

I wrote about my first visit to this restaurant in which I thought my lunch was a poor value. I revisited for dinner after a family member gave me a gift certificate. I have to say, the dinner was very good and the portions ample. I would recommend this restaurant. Be aware that you can't put your tip on a... More
