Again my eyes were bigger than my stomach. Garlic knots were fantastic, chicken wings were good, but the calzone was awesome. It may be hard to navigate on the map app I have on my phone but I loved it when I got there. Thanks AF!!

I stop here often as there are not many places to get slices. Plenty of chives and the place is always clean. Had the meat parm and it was good.

Was in the area working and desired a fast, hot lunch. I actually had to loop around on Route 17 to get here, but was worth the "trip". Lots of tables to eat at and not an issue to find one at lunch time this day. Counter staff was quick to ask for my order. A little cheerier would have... More

I stopped here on my way home from a trip to OCNJ with my 2 boys, 5yrs and 10 months. Found it by accident and now I wish I lived closer so I can eat their pizza ALL the time!! I had the chicken bacon ranch slice and my 5 year old had pepperoni! Generous size slices and they load... More

My job brings me to the finest restaurants in the world. As odd as it may sound yesterday's (7/3/15) penne a la Vodka was truly a moving, religious experience. First, the staff asked if we wanted peas, prosciutto and scallions in it. They didn't just make it their way...they knew enough to know a better experience would be to customize... More

Just what we expected - good pizza, good ziti, good heros. Server was friendly, food was served piping hot, and I mean steaming. Overall, just what we wanted for a fast, friendly, and relaxing meal.

Thank Walt and Gwynne W
