“Great Sandwiches & Pizza”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

Our family of 4 stopped in for lunch to support local business. We were there on a Tuesday afternoon. We were immediatley seated. The staff were very friendly, prompt, and courteous. Three of us ordered sandwiches. They were all prepared exactly as described and were very good. My daughter wanted a pizza. The waitress suggested the individual pizza from the kids menu (even though it was clear she wasn't a kid). The pizza was the equalent of 2 slices which was plenty. She stated it was very tastey. We had a great experience supporting local business.

“We never got to try the food!”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

W decided to walk from our hotel, Friday night. We waited in line & were told to sit. We waited awhile to place our drink orders, got them then ordered a pizza. We were watching them sell lots of pizzas a, sandwiches, saw the delivery guys go out, the table next to us left...the busser was extremely slow, and was prodded by one of the teenagers behind the counter. I believe that was the problem. The only adults came out of the kitchen with packaged food orders. 4 teens appeared to be running the restaurant. We waited about 30-45 minutes, then asked about our order, since the table next to us had been seated with a group of 5, several minutes after we got drinks, and they got their 2 pizzas. When I asked about our order, the server/teen eventually came back & said "they lost your order" & it will take 15 minutes. W paid for the drinks & went to the Osaka sushi restaurant next door. I don't like sushi, but got a good stir-fry.

“Awful - Dreadful - Horrible”
Reviewed March 29, 2013 via mobile

What can you say about a restaurant being run by 3 teenagers and no adult in sight? It is a wonder this place can continue to keep its doors open. If it were not for the tourists this place would not exist.

“Delicious”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

Enjoyed dinner here during a spring break family trip. We ate at the restaurant and did not have any wait for a table. Very casual dining and atmosphere. They have a varied italian menu with many items and also have some mexican food, not sure how that fits in, but its there. We had the garlic chesse bread for an appetizer which was very good. Bread tasted freash and it came out nice and hot. We shared a large pizza for dinner with pepperoni and meatball topping. I do mean meatball, not ground beef like many dumpy pizza places use. Pizza was NY style and very good. Crust is just right. Sauce was a little sweet for my liking, but that is personal preference. I am picky with my pizza having grown up in NY/NJ and this wasnt exactly right, but pretty close and definitely good enough while on vacation. They deliver and I would eat here again in a heart beat.

“disappointed”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

Last night we ordered 6 large pizzas at 6 pm . They said it would take an hour for the delivery less than 2 miles up the beach. At 7pm we phoned to see where it was. Hadn"t even left the premises yet. Finally at 7.30, an hour and a half after placing the order it arrived. It was hot and no complaints with the food, but entertaining 15 hungary people including 5 children and getting such poor service means they will never get our business again or any recommendations to others. Extremely disappointed and more than a little annoyed.
