We went on a Friday and they were very busy so they definitely need more help in the place. Location is very easy to find and sign is bright and colorful with plenty of parking.
Pizza was good, but got very soggy so I would recommend you to eat and not get anything to go.
Same thing with the Calzone.
Chicken was underdone (topping)
Chicken wings were the ones we had a problem with. It seemed to be fried in oil which was heavily used and it actually smelled like pee. I know it's hard to fathom, how could anyone screw up heating up frozen chicken wings but unfortunately the cooks did.

I was really looking forward to be a regular after seeing the reviews below, but we wont be returning. Thanks again to the lady in the front desk, but you definitely need more support from your kitchen staff, especially in making sure food quality is not compromised with.

This place is a MUST. The owner,Raffaele, is from Italy, and his background shows in the quality and taste of the food-- real homemade sauce and dough. I have tried the pizza, calzones, salads, and lasagna. The pizza and calzone are the best I have had!!!
The calzone and strombolis have unlimited ingredients, with a side sauce that is outstanding (ask for extra sauce--it is that good!). A large calzone or pizza will feed 3-4 with possible left overs. Panini and subs are on the menu, but I can't get past the calzone and pizza when I order. Cold beer and soft drinks are available.

This Pizza is the best I have had since moving to the South from NJ over 25 years ago. I have been searching for Pizza like this that has thin, crispy crust, that droops when you pick it up and the cheese is so stringy that you need a fork to wind it up. The other menu items have never disappointed me. The calzones are huge as are the Strombollis. Rafael, the owner, is from Naples Italy and learned his trade well. The staff all know what they are doing and interact with the customers and make everyone feel welcome. A medium (really large) pizza for two and twosoft drinks total less than $16.50. Great Value! Everything on the menu is very reasonably priced.

I found this place by accident, tucked in a shopping area near a closed Publix at the corner of Herrington Rd, I now visit at least weekly. The pizza is excellent,, but is surpassed by the calzone. You can get a calzone with any ingredients you wish for about $10 (large),, and the large calzone will feed three, with leftovers.
Locally owned, great staff that is friendly and attentive. Also has great lasagne, salads, and tiramisu. The homemade dough and sauce are outstanding--make sure you order extra sauce (for dipping) with a calzone.
