Went there late, after a show and they assured us they served food til closing, but would only seat us in the bar along with a group of loud and obnoxious people. Another couple came in and ordered and when the bartender put our orders in, the cook came out yelling about wanting to go home! I ordered soup, ate about 1/3 of it when someone came out of the back, saw us and snickered. I quit eating, but too late. Was sick for 2 days!
The office door is one of the filthiest things I have ever seen! The vinyl floor leading to the back is rotted away along with the moulding. They had just mopped with dirty and foul smelling water (not a cleanser smell).
Whole experience was disgusting and the other couple was already gone when we left, guess they figured it out earlier than us -- as we only saw them get served their salads and not the meal they ordered. YUCK

There seems to be as many pizza choices as burger choices these days. There are the locals, the national chains and all in between but Birraporetti's is our favorite for the last year. The difference is in the crust. Any place can put the toppings on, but the crust is the life source of a pizza. This crust is thin, perfectly cooked on the bottom and the outsid edges bubble up with a light browning and brushed with garlic butter. Pick your own ingredients to personalize what you like. Order more than you need and take the rest home. The rest of the menu has some good choices but not gorment by any means but the prices match the quality. The inside needs some freshening but don't worry about it. The bar is active and plenty of beer choices and solid drinks and wine if you like.

This place has been around a while now. All of the food is good, and the service was excellent. They have great wood fired pizzas, and a nice selection of beers on tap.

Brunch is so incredible. I just wish they would keep their mushroom caps on the buffet. My spouse constantly wants them!

What a DISASTER !!!! We went for Easter Brunch... will never go there again !!!! There was 1 server making omlettes, and the line had to pass through that server. The line never moved. We waited 45 minutes. Finally, we just wanted some food, so everyone started attacking the small trays of food on the buffet line. Every time (however infrequently) food was brought out, in small trays, patrons jumped on the food so they could get something to eat. I was told by the waitress that in order to increase seating, they changed the line up ... and tried this set up the first time on one of their busier days. Someone should be shot!! then to top it off, the manager was defensive... saying that he was bring out food quickly.... there were so many empty tables because everyone was standing in line. What a poor excuse for a restaurant.
