“Great food, lousy hours”
Reviewed October 2, 2011

The food is great. Great pizza, great lasagna, great calzones. Try the Steak Bomb. But they have wierd hours. They close at 9pm, but you better place your delivery order by 8:15. And even at that, they will have ovens and such shut off already, so choices are limiited. If they have orders backed up, they will also quit taking new orders so the driver can be off the clock by 9pm. If you go for sit-down, at 8:30 they stop seating. It seems the 9pm closing time means they want to be out the door at 9pm. So just be there well before closing time, or you will be turned away.

“Real Italian Pizza”
Reviewed April 24, 2011

My wife and I had a great pizza. The thin crust was perfect, the sauce and additions were as good as anything I have had in NY or Boston. It is located in the same plaza as Frank's Cinema, so in addition to the quick service (they were in the process of finishing serving a ladies group of about 30 people seated next to us, and didn't miss a beat, very impressive!), it made for a perfect pre-movie dinner.
