This is a great all around pizza restaurant. They have excellent salads, sandwiches and calzones. Always freshly made. The salad dressing is homemade and very good.

This is a hidden gem in Cranston Rhode Island ! The food is fantastic and service was awesome. I highly recommend the meatball and sausage calzone. They are huge and tasty! I think their marinara sauce is some of the best I've ever had. Try their mozzarella bread it is especially good. Our server Summer was fabulous and gave us... More

The staff is attentive and very friendly. I love the spinach pie. I have to say the best in Rhode Island. Love the salad it's nice and crispy and the dressing is one the best I've had. I normally dress my salad with oil and vinegar but a friend advised me to try their dressing. I'm glad I did. The... More

Pizzas were made to order on white or whole wheat crusts. I devoured the Greek popeye - a spinach wheat calzone overflowing with greek salad. We didn't have room for... More

I've been going here for over 20 years and still get excited to have lunch or dinner there. It's my comfort place. Salad dessing is the bomb. It's the only dressing we will eat now (they sell it). The pizza is awesome. Unbelievable calzones. Their stuffed Greek Popeye is unbelievable. SO worth it. Meaballs are delish. The best place to... More
