I have ordered from this resturant. The food was just okay, I find the soups and pizza to be salty and definitely not home made. Nothing special, prices were a bit hugh.

I stopped in here for a quick dinner one evening and got a couple slices of pizza. IT WAS AMAZING. The crust was thin and cooked perfectly. The cheese melted in your mouth. It was one of the best meals I had during the whole...week I was in Philly!!More

I've had the sausage stromboli several times. The first time, I waited about 25 minutes. Since then, I have ordered ahead on-line and done a pick up. Great food and atmosphere.

This was a basic, no frills, delicious food for the locals. This isn't your tourist trap and doesn't have the tourist frills either but if you want a decent pizza or cheesesteak then check this place out!

Visited this small family owned fast food place many times over years; never disappoints... Counter staff friendly and helpful to out-of-towners who do not know their hoagie from 'cheez-steak. Order the standard, with provelone (not cheez-wizz) and anything else you would like with it; do...not forget the condiments ( mustard, chilli etc) Well worth a visit.More

I'am italian and I travel frequently in the USA for work, I am glad to have found a 'taste of Italy'. Of course cheesesteaks don't come from Italy but the way CHEF Mario makes them brings my taste buds back to homestyle italian flavours. Neat...and natural taste is what I appreciate most, toghether with easily digestible food.More

I appreciate that they clearly make their own eggplant Parmesan but this sandwich as you can clearly see in the photo had none in it and the roll wasnt even that fresh, I would rather have a restaurant say that they are low on eggplant...Parmesan than give me none in my sandwich and charge me 8 bucksMore

Absolutely love their pizza 🍕! Great cheese steaks as well as everything else I tried. Except the meatballs. Sorry guys, they weren't all that. Friendly employees and fast service.

The wonderful thing about this establishment is the choices. There truly is something for everyone. It was clean, well staffed and had a good amount of seating. None of us ordered pizza (sorry no review on that). We ordered a chicken salad, chicken strips, spaghetti,...chef salad, shrimp salad and my favorite, fried zucchini. Everything was great. Service was friendly especially the sweet young lady taking our order. Very nice and answered all our questions. A very nice afternoon.More

I was working in downtown Philadelphia recently and needed a good takeout place. The locals recommended Dolce, and I was really glad they did. The delivery was quick, the prices were very reasonable, and my sandwich was great! I got the chicken cordon bleu, and...it was almost too big. I'd definitely order a sandwich from here again.More
