“Good Food, LOOOONG Wait for Food”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

We noticed this "old school" Italian place while driving past several times. When ranked well on Trip Advisor, my group of ten decided to give it a try. They gladly accepted reservations, which we liked given it was 4th of July weekend. Once there we were seated quickly and the server brought our drinks. We ordered appetizers and drinks from the bar, which all came out quickly. Homemade bread and special oils were delicious! From the time we placed our order it took 1.25 to finally get our food. Everyone in our party enjoyed their meal, but none of it was worth the extremely long wait times. Probably wouldn't return because of this. Others around us experienced the same thing with smaller parties.

“Delicious, Affordable Pizza!”
Reviewed July 5, 2013 via mobile

We visited La Familiga last week and had a great pizza dinner. We went on the recommendation of a friend and we did not regrett it! They had fresh bread and oil on our table almost as soon as we sat down. We ordered 1 of their specialty pizzas and it was delicious! Fresh ingredients, thin crust and very cheesy! The waitresses were very nice and kept our drinks filled (always a huge plus in my book!) The only complaint I had was they seated us at this weird table right in the middle and I definitely felt in the way. Other than that, we had a great experience! We would definitely go back!

“Old school Italian that rocks the house!”
Reviewed July 4, 2013 via mobile

I loved this place - the owner and his family are there to serve you and cook for you - what else can you ask for? We had the antipasto, marguerita pizza, and risotto lobster. Everything was outstanding and we were stuffed. I would eat here every night but for the fact I would be 100 pounds heavier!

“Wine Wednesday is great!”
Reviewed July 3, 2013 via mobile

We didn't have a reservation (group of 12) and we managed to get right in at 6:30 on July 3rd! The food was outstanding. We had everything from pizza, to pasta, to seafood. The food was delivered to our table quickly. The sauces were outstanding and the portions were enormous. We went to the older location on rt 98, not the harbor side location. $2 per glass -Wine Wednesday!
