We held our High School Reunion here. The owner was so accommodating to all of our requests. The food was great for this occasion, the room was perfect, and the staff was EXCELLENT at making sure any request was handled quickly. Best local eatery around.

This is a long-established Italian red sauce restaurant. Some things stick around for good reasons, among them Jim and Pete’s. The extensive menu is designed to be customized. For example, you can have your pizza thin crust, Chicago-style, hand-rolled, double, or stuffed in any size...More

Nice new addition and windows but... food has been better in past. Seemed just microwaved and not fresh. Freezing next to wall of windows. Has possibilities to be a charming neighborhood favorite If food. An increase in quality.
