I've been going to this place for 40 years. Food is great and consistant still! Pizza is amazing with salad and house garlic dressing is a must! Baked pasta and meatballs or roast beef on cheese garlic bread are other great favorites!

Great locally family owned pizzeria. We always get the thin crust. The sauce is really good. Nothing too fancy just good pizza.

We try to eat local. This is one of our favorites! The pizza is good, the Broasted Chicken is the BEST ever and the house salad dressing is filled with garlic! Yum.Try Chicken Spedini too.

The good here is very good, especially their house salads. Our server wasn't very attentive. We asked for a box for our leftover pizza & it took almost 10 minutes to get a box.

I can't say enough about eating at non-chain restaurants, I do it as often as possible and 100% of the time when I'm out of town. The pizza was great as was the service and hospitality. The owner made her way over and ensured that...More

Wasn't your original location in a tiny strip mall, next to a laundry mat, on the corner of Olive and Midland?
