Il Vicino has been a staple for us in the sense we hit there at least once a year of not more often.

We have NEVER had a bad pizza there. Keep in mind it's brick oven pizza and has interesting toppings. It's not Pizza Hut, and please never compare it to that.

Yes it is a chain but a small one at that.

Now it's not sit down service in the sense that you order at the cash register and pay there. Should you need another food item, glass of wine, beer, etc. there are friendly servers that will be happy to deliver.

As mentioned the service has always been friendly on our visits. The wine is decent for the price. They have a great salad. We love to split a salad and get a pizza or 2. They aren't huge but pretty heavy for one person.

They offer fresh parmesan for the pizza and fresh ground black pepper for their salads.

I am not huge on counter service restaurants but it's more than made up for in the ensuing service and again, the food quality is quite good.

I really don't have a bad thing to say about the place except perhaps they could make it a touch less antiseptic in regards to the atmosphere. Dec it out a bit and add some music. They are only suggestions and in no way should keep you from getting a nice lunch or meal before perhaps going to the Kimball's Theater around the corner and catching a movie.

We stopped in for lunch because the menu appealed to 3 boys ages 9, 14 & 17. Everyone liked their meal. I had a fantastic spinach salad that was different than the usual due the pesto dressing. My husbands da Vinci pizza was good, but kind of skimpy on the toppings. (Like only a sliver of artichoke on each slice.) The calzone is huge and yummy, still I couldn't believe when the 14 yr old ate almost the whole thing. #1 son had lasagna and liked it so much he wouldn't give the reviewer a bite...must be good.

The wine list is small and basic, but very inexpensive. The service was great, from the girls who took our order at the counter to the parade of wait staff that kept the drinks filled and delivered food. We will come back.

I'd been craving pizza for nearly three weeks, but finding a GF friendly pizza place is challenging. These guys not only do great "regular" pizza but the GF crust is downright tasty. A friend of mine tried her crust then my crust back to back and said that she liked them both.

The topping choices are plentiful and beyond your standard fare. Get the salad combo. The salad is fresh and plentiful.
