Garlic Knots
It's pretty simple, these are what inspired the phrase "Lovin' From The Oven". It truly is hard to eat just one. We can't tell you what's on them but we can tell you that you'll love 'em.
Stuffed Pizza
Our stuffed pizza is customizeable to your liking. Just pick four of your favorite toppings & we'll make it a masterpiece of flavor.
BBQ Chicken Pizza
Crispy strips of tender chicken smothered in tangy bbq sauce covered in mozzarella cheese w/ some sweet red onion & fresh diced tomatos.
The Tuscan
The Tuscan pizza quickly rose to the top of our customer favorites. We begin w/ italian sausage, marinated artichokes, roasted red peppers, fresh garlic, carmelized onions, topped w/ fresh mozzarella & gorgonzola. We then finish it w/ a decorative but flavorful balsamic glaze.
Gyro Pizza
Delicious layer of spiced gyro meat baked w/ mozzarella cheese then topped w/ crisp lettuce, fresh tomatos, diced red onion & tzatziki sauce
Spaghetti & Meatballs
Grandma Mary's spaghetti & meatballs is simple yet fantastic. A staple in the italian home growing up. Fresh all beef meatballs seasoned to perfection & handrolled. Mated w/ al-dente pasta, it is sure to hit the spot.
White Pizza w/ Baby Spinach
It all starts w/ chopped fresh garlic, dallops of local farm fresh ricotta cheese, & then we top it w/ fresh shredded mozzarella cheese, pecorino romano sprinkled then finished w/ fresh baby spinach.
WOW! What can we say but delicioso! All the favorites on one plate.
Large Greek Salad
We may be Italian but we sure can toss together an incredible greek salad. Add one to a pizza order for an appetizer or have one as an entree.
Buffalo Chicken Pizza
Deliciously‎ tender strips of crispy chicken tossed in Frank's Buffalo Red Hot. We put a little white onion & blue cheese on top for the kicker. This pizza is a customer favorite.

They have great pizzas, and I’m just learning about the Stromboli’s (yum). Perfect to order for pickup, but we have also eaten in and had a good time. The garlic knots remind me of getting pizza back in NY. Sometimes it can take a while...More

We had pizza, chicken parmigiana and the spaghetti and meatballs. The pizza and chicken parmigiana were very good. None of us were really fond of the meatballs...

This is our go to, all dishes are phenomenal. Great to dine in or take out. I am originally from NY and I can say without a doubt their pizza is some of the best I've ever had. Great and friendly service, too.

There’s not a lot of restaurants in Portsmouth. This is a nice little Italian restaurant. It’s easy to get to. It’s located on East Main Street. It’s casual & the locals go here. Try the garlic,bread, knots. My only complaint is that the booths need...More

It's our favorite pizza place in the area, and happy to have garlic knots again. The pizza usually reminds me of NY pizza.

Not sure what you mean you can order many non meat dishes and even the pizzas if you want all veggies...
