I found this place by chance, and was pleasantly surprised. We ordered one of their strombolis, a "toppings" one in the small size. Not only was it not small, but the ingredients were first-rate, and it was extremely tasty. We also had a "loaded" cheese...steak, which includes mushrooms, green peppers, and fried onions. It was also one of the best I have ever had. The fries were also nice and crisp and fresh. I don't live there but visit at least once a year. It will definitely be a regular dining spot in the future.More

We were greeted at the door by the owner,wow, what a pleasant positive personality, she treats everyone like family . The menu was ambitious, she informed us she had cut it down! They have it all going for them and do it all well. She...brought out a plate of garlic knots that were just made, it got our attention really fast, oh so good, this is one recipe I would love to have. We ordered the Italian Baked Mostaccioli, it was cooked to order with a delightful meat sauce and penne pasta, it was piping hot fresh from the oven, perfectly seasoned. The dish was near the size of a pie plate and at least 2" thick. After the meal I asked about the chicken wings and she said they were a popular item, they come in a variety of seasonings and are JUMBO, they are the traditional drumettes and flats, just expect a huge portion. Free refills on softdrinks. The restaurant is basic in appearance inside, lots of grays and cement tones that are broken up by flatscreen tv's that were fortunately not playing sports, sports and more sports. Clean restrooms and plenty of free parking. This has become one of our new "go to" places. Very impressive food, generous servings, great customer service, and reasonable prices. We will be back when in the area.More

This restaurant was outstanding from start to finish. The waiter Matt was very good. The owner came out to say hi to us - very personable.

Always worth it to try various things on the menu, And service that makes every visit a treat. Garlic knots for dinning in, and some of the best pizza you'll ever have. Give it a go, you'll enjoy every moment you're there.

My experience with Italian restaurants is that it serves wine, offers a plentiful supply of crusty bread and a container of grated Romano or Parmasan is a fixture at every table. That these fundamentals were missing (no liquor license, even though the wall mural makes...reference to suggested availability good wine), as well as other customers. Add to that a rather stark and uninviting atmosphere, my wife and I were tempted to turn around and walk out. Although the food, except that the sauce was a bit sweet, was quite good - served to order and served hot. An interesting feature was that our server was able to recall our entire order from memory. In the future, this is a reasonable venue for carry out.More

This place is not fancy but the food is great, the service is great, and the prices are competitive. We discovered it a few months ago during restaurant week and enjoyed it. Last night my wife wanted Italian but I didn't since decided to go...back because their menu had much more than Italian. Great decision. I had a cheesesteak and she had a great pasta dish. She also ordered dessert. We will definitely return. No bells and whistles here, just great food and staff.More

Good and place is very nice and relaxing. Food is fantastic and the sweet tea is awesome. The food prices are reasonable the same as any Italian restaurant. About $14 is the average. Calzones, fresh pizza and stromboli. I will come back again.

We frequently order delivery to our house so when we had a midday happy hour I was more than happy to volunteer Fresh Crust! The crust is always super yummy, pizza is never greasy, toppings are ample, etc. The delivery is well timed and the...guys are always super nice.More

I just love finding hidden gems. Although FreshCrust has 51 reviews it still is an undiscovered culinary commodity in Virginia Beach in my opinion. I cannot take the credit for the take down as a friend recommended that I must try. You could drive by...this strip every day on South Lynnhaven Parkway and never know they are there. Located around a mile South of Lynnhaven Mall and to not have road frontage seems to be a death sentence. What a beautiful warm Virginia Beach day in the low 70's to get out and about. When traveling South on the Parkway you will need to do a U-Turn to access the business. Upon driving up at noon there were only two cars which did seem odd. Lot and sidewalk were clear. Two flower pots out front were being used as ash trays, this needs to be cleaned up and I did mention to staff, that just nasty. A walk in the door and strangely the good size dining room was dead. The exterior does not prepare you for the transition as you walk in.The bar area had possibly a couple of customers on my entire visit and I think that was take out. Two pool tables are in the bar and to left as you enter, dining room to the right. The place for the most part is wide open with a short barrier between bar and dining. There seems to be no disputing that the joint lacks in the ambiance department. Tile floors were clean, but chipped up horribly, ceiling tiles were badly damaged from apparent water damage at some time. Not an expensive fix to have these replaced and they should be. What is lacks for atmosphere it makes up for in the bubbly server that others had mentioned in there reviews, Coke. She was upbeat, knowledgeable and helpful the entire time. Coke is the kind of server that you would expect at a higher end restaurant. She connects with customers and most certainly a big reason for the four stars is due to her excellent service skills. Menus looked over, but we both already knew what we wanted. I ordered the Lobster Ravioli and Xerxes the Philly Cheesesteak. Drinks on the table and complimentary garlic knots placed in front of us. We took no time in trying them. I rarely read others reviews before going in, but I did cheat and knew the reputation of them were well regarded. They did not disappoint us, but they are on the smaller than usual knots size. Soft and crisp with the butter not being melted all the way down like others do. Oh know, this was nice warm creamy butter and it had us fighting to the last one...well we actually came to a truce. Can I say these were the best I've ever had yes I am willing to take that leap. A Caesar Salad which came as a side was delivered. It was fresh and crisp, very delicious indeed. Orders were out around 15 minutes later and timing seemed good. At this point there was someone over at the bar, but no one ever even entered the dining room except our waitress. My pasta dish was humongous and I could see Xerxes had plenty to work with on his side of the table that is for sure. I loved the fact that the dish was fresh, plenty of meat in those shells. However, it was lacking some pizzazz and could have used more seasoning, I should have peppered. It had the consistency of a bisque, I really enjoyed and it was a filler. The bread came out later with a chutney butter, all good but nothing special. Coke kept tabs on us, but never performed a drink refill which was under half. My meal was too big and I could go no further. The owner, originally from Turkey came over and checked on us. I always appreciate this when the owner is proactive in the dining room. In this case we were the only ones, but he did may the effort. We chatted for a while and he was a friendly guy. Over the five years they have been in business evening and catering have been stronger than lunch. That had me much less concerned if there were going to make it. But with all of these businesses just a mere one mile away to not have any type of lunch crowd just seems wrong, wrong, wrong! Some great yelp conversation for quite some time to let out tummy's settle and bill was out. But not before a surprise of complimentary chocolate chip cookies. OMG, so good and still warm. A glass of milk would have really had my mouth doing the happy dance. I got out with one to go and surprised a friend with it later in the day for doing me a favor...we are now even! The check was quickly handled at the table. Coke remained enthusiastic and had so much energy it was a delight to witness. I would return for the garlic knots alone and I mean it. Prices fair, meal above average, service off the chart great with Coke, but the restaurant needs attention in the aesthetics department. If your looking for a peaceful lunch this appears to be the place for you. If are also looking for some great food and friendly service this the place. I would recommend to anyone. It is possible that I may dream about those delicious garlic knots.More
