Lots of standard Italian fare (pizza, calzones, subs) with typically friendly service. Climate-controlled "porch" seating available. Service less well-timed than expected on this visit. Kid's menu not a great deal. Casual atmosphere. Currently under renovations.

We walked in and it felt like "that" place you find in every small town where you go after the game. The crust on our pizza was light almost pasty-like. Delightful treat! Will stop in again when we are in the area!

Stopped for dinner at "Pizza Pasta Pit" while driving on Route 81. The reviews seemed good, the prices were great, and I figured it would be an okay place for dinner. I was so wrong. The salad bar was okay, but its pretty difficult to...More
