We've been eating at Brother's Encore Italian Restaurant for the past 5 years. They have great pizza and house salad - both are reasonably priced.

The corned beef and cabbage are served in large portions and cut as they ought to be. The bartenders do an excellent job of taking care of the patrons! The beer selection is minimal, but the bartenders do the best they can to keep clientele happy. It is nice that there is a separate dining area from the bar which... More

Been here a handful of times. Mostly just for carry out. They have a bar area on the left and dinning on the right. Both areas separated by a wall. The bar area is small but nice, the dinning area needs work. The pizza is dry and boring. The subs are good. My wife had chicken marsala and she couldn't... More

My family has lived in the area for years, and we finally tried the pizza at Brother's Encore. They have great pizza! We were tired of the chains. This place was delicious! And we found out that they deliver. We will be back!

We love eating here. From the time you walk in the door until the time you leave, the staff are always friendly. They have the best fresh food. I love the cheese steaks, chicken Alfredo, the pizza as well as the Greek salad.

The best kept secrets become well known as more people gather at the Encore Italian Resturant for great Irish & Italian food. They have a wide array of subs, appetizers and pizza selections as well as main course favorites. On the Pub side, there is an opportunity to enjoy a drink watching sporting events or have a blast during Friday... More

This looks like just another strip mall pizzaria from the outside. Indeed, the pizza is good; we prefer the "everything on" version. Their subs are very tasty and are served cold or warmed-your choice. The Italian food is average. The limited Irish dishes are a disappointment. The bar scene and bartenders, especially Ian, are noteworthy. Service in the restaurant section... More

This was the closest Italian restaurant to our location, so we thought we'd give it a try. Not a fancy place or well-trained wait staff, though the decor was very nice, including a big fountain in the middle of the restaurant. Surprisingly few customers for 8pm on a Saturday. All the staff we interacted with was friendly. Our party of... More

Four of us went there for dinner a few weeks ago. All the food was good, but ordinary. Two of us ordered soup, and asked that the waiter make sure it was served hot.He came out with two bowls, and asked who wanted the hot soup! Apparently he put one bowl in the microwave oven. Prices are very reasonable, food... More

They have a nice dining room but we use it weekly for take-out. The subs are terrific and so is the Sausage Meatball Parmagiano. Good food, nice people!
