Stopped in for a quick dinner before the ballgame. We were seated and served quickly and efficiently. Most of our group ordered the baked spaghetti which was good although I felt it could have been served a little warmer. One person ordered the eggplant which they said was terrific. I am still working on getting the sauce stain off my... More

There were several pasta selections, a small salad bar in the front. We ate in the covered outdoor area it was cozy even though the night was a little cool. The outer area is much larger and can accommodate larger groups. We stuck to pizza and apps. The wings were not NY standard for hot but crispy with some heat.... More

We have tried their pizza and calzones. Crusts are wonderful, and so generous with good ingredients. The Best!

Here as my father in law is in the VA hospital and thought we would try out something local. So glad we did! Had the white pie with ricotta and it was the bomb! Friendly and helpful staff. Small, but worth the trip!

Food quality is fine. Had the Pit special subor some such thing. At first I thought they'd left off the meat cuz all I could see was gobs of lettuce and some (underripe) tomato. But upon further inspection I discovered the wafer-thin slices of salami and pepperoni. And I think it was $8...maybe $7. But a overpriced for what it... More

Good pizza with plentiful toppings, great steak sandwiches and excellent fries! Friendly staff. Downside is that the building and parking lot are small - go early to avoid crowds although there is a large outdoor dining area. Will definitely go again.

these people always get it right when it comes to your food and beer. I drink corona with lime slice and theirs is always cold and never 'skunky' tasting like other places. Meaning they let their beer get cold, then warm, and then back into the cooler they go. You can really taste it when that happens in Corona.
