“Great pizza and pasta”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

There are lots of pizza places in our city. This has to be one of the best. The pasta dishes are also wonderful. The serving sizes are MASSIVE. Besides the awesome pizza our favorites are the calzones and ravioli in vodka sauce. Wait staff is friendly and folksy. Service is attentive and fast...especially at lunch.

“Great Food!”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

The food at Polito's is quite good, just expect to pay a little more than an average pizza restaurant. One of our favorite local pizza places.

“NY Style Pizza”
Reviewed December 14, 2012

This is the closest pizza to NY style you’re going to get in this area. The garlic pizza with added ricotta cheese is our favorite. Their Stromboli is packed with ingredients and their red sauce is full of garlic and chunky tomatoes. We’ve been going to this place since they were over on Grape Road and it’s very consistent. I’m not sure why some people say it’s not kid friendly, there’s a game room in the back and when they are busy there’s always kids running around. This place is one of a couple “go to” pizza places we frequent.

“Delicious, massive portions”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

Great pizza and wonderful Italian dishes. The portions are enormous and most can easily be shared. Their pizza by the slice is gigantic. Get that and the salad bar and you're stuffed. Friendly, fun wait staff.

“Avoid this place!”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

The food is terrible- and the crowd is a bunch of yelling, drunk sports idiots- not at all family friendly.
