Shortly after noon and the place was fairly empty. The food was great, but the service is in dire need of improvement. Wait staff needs to greet customers, which did not happen, and it was several minutes before we were even noticed. Food needs to...be served directly to each person, no passed in front of others. Customer service needs to improve, or patrons will go elsewhere.More

We often forget that all the food we eat eventually ends up in the toilet. Sole D'Italia makes it easy to remember as that's where their food belongs. From soggy nachos, to crab soup without crab, to a sandwich with barely more than bread, this...is hands-down, the worst delivery I've ever had. Avoid at all costs.More

We get take-out from here about once a month, because it's the only pizza my youngest son will eat. (To put this into perspective, he thinks fast food is delightful.) We have to get food from other restaurants for the rest of the family, because...the food here is just awful. We have also eaten in, but the place is just dirty. If you like bars, though, there's a hopping pub attached - which might explain how the restaurant stays in business. The pizza tastes like dishwater and the Italian 'dishes' are worse than cafeteria food. We have tried a LOT of it, because of my youngest son, but have always been disappointed. We used to have snail mail coupons for the pizza but they stopped coming - AND the prices went up. This is the most expensive pizza around, and by far the worst. If we have to eat it, at least it should be cheap.More

I grew up down the street from this place and have fond memories. Being able to still go to this restaurant as an adult allows me to reminisce while enjoying their great menu. Went here recently for business meeting. They asked to visit a local...restaurant and couldn't have thought of a better place. It's not the fanciest but it has a cozy feeling and the staff are absolutely wonderful and friendly.More

This place is not going to win ambience awards, but is very affordable and has genuinely good food. Pizza is done well (especially the white pizza). Another thing they do well is the eggplant parmesan. Servings are generous. Good value for your money.

For our Friday Night - Pizza Night -- we're expanding our selections.... - we've done the Kirklands (CostCo) frozen, ready-to-bake from CostCo, Papa John's, Pizzza Hut, Domino's, Armand's, etc... And this would be our second order from our "neighborhood pizzeria" -- unfortunately, the last time...it got 2 out of 5 stars. This time we did a created your own combo - it was great to have red, green and yellow peppers. Very nice! Most places you get green and that's it. Plenty of meat this time, and the dough and crust were near perfect. We did take-away / carry-out this time, and the resetaurant was hoping - quite busy. Would recommend: We'll see after third time Would re-patronize: Yes Note to management: maintain quality standards like you did this past time.More

Popped into Papa Nick's for a quick beer on my way home. It was cold and delicious, and the crowd was jumpin' on a chilly Thursday night. The price was right, the service was friendly, and I left satisfied.

If you want real Italian food from a locally owned and managed family this is the best place I've found in Maryland. Great Italian dinners and fantastic pizza. They have specials every weeknight that are real bargains including 2 for 1 pizza on Tuesnights. They...also have fantastic wings and other good bar food. Lastly they do a fantastic job catering with an extensive menu. Prices are reasonable.More

I have had the pizza on numerous occasions and it is top-notch. Tuesday it is half price and the place is packed. Bring cash or get it from the ATM on site to pay on Tues. I also have had the Lasagna Special and they...have some of the best I have ever had. I get it with marinara, but my brother had the meat version and he wanted to return the next week. The special comes with salad and garlic bread for 12 bucks. It feeds me for three days it is so big.They have very decent wings too. Atmosphere here is casual, counter service and they either call your number or bring it to you depending on the crowd.More

This mom & pop pizzeria is just a mile from our house, but we've yet to try it - even though the reviews are pretty good. We ordered 1 large combo at the restaurant for delivery. I was told it would be ready in ten...minutes, but had to dash (mistake). So I placed the order for delivery and was told I'd have it in 20-minutes. This was on a Thursday night, and there were only 2 people eating in the restaurant. This was at about 5:15pm. Forty-five minutes after I placed the order, I called to check on the status. "Oh, uh yeah.... I think it's on it's way out now...." Ten to fifteen minutes later it arrived. I wouldn't say it was cold, but it wasn't piping hot either. Mind you, this place is one mile from out house. So - the "combo" - or as I like to call it the "veggie, combo-wanna-be". Crust was good, sauce was ok - nothing exceptional. But as Clara Peller would say "Where's the Beef?!" Tons of onions & green peppers and a fair amount of mushrooms. But there was roughly 1 1/2 pepperonis per slice, and the sausage was so scant that you couldn't really tell if there was any on there - or if there was just some spill-over from the pizza sitting next to it on the chopping block. Definitely NOT a combo. And this "large" was $18. So disappointed as we were looking for a place to order a bunch of pizzas for a birthday party on Saturday, and for a new casual place to be our "stand-by" - but it won't be here.More
