We have eaten here for many years, however in the past two years the food and service have declined. Staff busy visiting with each other instead of attending their tables and customers needs. Salads watery, rolls hard and dried put and iced tea was served clear- no tea flavor at all. We had to exchange for a soft drink. We... More

I have ordered pizza from this facility before and considered it average and over priced. Last night we decided to try dining in and ordering their pasta dishes. I ordered baked penne and my grand daughter had spaghetti with sausage. The meals were to include bread and salads - the bread arrived with no salads and after a 20 minute... More

This was a nice place to stop for lunch. They make all their own dough here and the rolls they give you are to die for. Had sandwiches and they were huge, we could of split one and had a salad. We want to come back and try their pizza, which looked like a popular item.

Went here instead of Shell Beach Brewhouse (would have been my choice) as the promise of their lasagne swung the balance. Turned out they had run out. How can an Italian restaurant run out of lasagne???!!!! Anyway, starter was forgotten and arrived with the mains (luckily removed from the bill). Food took too long to come out compared to other...

Have only eaten the pizza and salad. Del's special pizza is really good, has slightly sweet sauce and a nice chewy crust. Salad is your standard green salad, but seems fresh and the italian and ranch dressing are really good. Never eaten in but it always seems crowded.

Good lasagne and a nice calzone pizza, accompanied by a standard local cab. wine, recommended by the waitresses which was rather nice. The lasagne was nice, tasty and meaty and could have been perfect if a different cheese had been used on the top, other than a slice of processed cheese! Fresh Parmesan would also have been a better choice... More

We tried this place for the first time by recommendation and the food was awesome! The cheesy garlic bread is a must! The servers there were all pretty young and inexperienced... and it showed, as they forgot an entire entree and continually forgot side items, like ranch, crushed peppers, etc. We paid for our check before my sons forgotten meal...
