Good old style pizza and Italian specialties. Eggplant parm is always a favorite because it is so lightly breaded it doesn't seem to be fried at all. Yes, you can teaste the eggplant you are eating.

I think that Rob has been behind the counter for 40 years and he never disappoints. The pizza probably has an egg wash on the crust which makes for a marvelous crunch when you bite into it. The sauce is a robust but sweet tomato flavor with the right amount of thickness that carries into the other dishes. Treat yourself... More

Well, it's famous in the area, but I find myself cooking at home than ordering take out. Bread they use is airy n fluffy...no taste. Pizza backfires from sauce. Mozz wedges good but holy freaking garlic in the sauce. Wedge slices are great. Pizza. Eh. Chewy crust...pull to chew.

Their Italian food is all homemade and very fresh. Robert Rinaldi and his staff are very friendly. My wife cannot have red sauce or cheeze.He always makes her an all veggie pizza with oil. Very agreeable to people's wants.

The grinders are great as is the pizza. The back room dining is cozy and generally quiet. Take out is equally good in a friendly atmosphere.

I have been here probably 10 times in the past 3 months while visiting family. The staff is amazing, the owner greets people warmly, the wait staff is efficient and the pizza is fabulous! Excellent meatball grinders too! A real find in a small town!

I have not had a bad meal there in years. Chef's specials are always good additions to the standard Italian dishes, sandwiches and pizzas.

Diversified menu, fast service and great food. The eggplant is excellent. Sliced thin and if you order the peppers and onions on your grinder or sandwich, it's amazing.
