Came here for dinner and had a really great time. We had 3 different servers and all of them took really good care of us. Especially Gabriel, he needs his picture on the back of the menu! Food had really great flavor, and we had huge portions! We plan on returning everytime we visit Anaheim.

We ordered take out. The food was rated high on tripadvisor. It was not so good. Very spongy pizza and my husband got very sick after eat good it so I am assuming it has tons of gluten. The delivery guy was nice and prompt

We ordered delivery from this restaurant based on the reviews here in Trip Advisor and were very happy that we did. We started with the Antipasto misto salad (which, by the way, is a salad - not an antipasto plate - lots of greens). Then ordered a Chicken alla Anthony and a Penne Franchascana. It was all delicious. It arrived... More

They recently opened another location up by Disneyland. But their original spot on Chapman in Garden Grove continues to amazing food. I have never ordered their pizza, but have gotten some amazing calzones. Their eggplant parmisian is to die for. Highly recommended.

After a long morning and afternoon a Dland, we decided to return to our hotel for some rest. We ordered two pepperoni pizzas for delivery and they arrived 35 mins later at our room piping hot! We ordered large pies and they were well over 16 inches. The dough is light and fluffy and the sauce and pepporoni were decent.... More
