Fast and friendly service. Pizza was very tasty and the garlic rolls rock!! I'll return next time to dine in and bring the family. John was very welcoming and nice. That in itself is hard to find in the restaurant world.

We order for a small birthday party at the house. We ordered the garlic bread which was excellent as well as the ziti with Alfredo sauce and chicken and the baked ziti. The Alfredo sauce was kind of bland.
