This is a good local restaurant for Italian food. From the bruschetta to the pasta dishes you can not go wrong. Be careful or you will drive by it. Its in a house.

Kovachi's is a great hometown pizza. No many know, but they also offer a 36" pizza for large groups. Their "Joey" pizza is outstanding and our family favorite, but don't ask for a gluten-free pizza. It's not available.

We have never actually been here, but we have had them deliver pizza may times. If you like a New York style pizza ( large, flat, thin crust, and a little greasy) this is for you.

Some of the best NY style pizza around. Mushrooms aren't fresh though, so expect bland, rubbery ones if you order that topping.

I have heard some people talk about how much they love the food. I simply don't understand, nor do I agree at all. The food is "meh." It's edible, but nothing special.
