“Great find”
Reviewed October 6, 2013 via mobile

We'd passed Polito's before but never stopped. We're glad we did. Adrian, our waiter, made excellent recommendations and even brought a sample for us. We ordered the large thin-crust supreme pizza, which was excellent. Adrian suggested a side of their specialty vodka cheese sauce for dipping the pizza. It was superb. We received plenty of good, well-prepared food for our money, and great service. We'll visit again.

“Big Food”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

Good stuff. If you want to load up on the carbs this is the spot for you. Stuffed pizza slices that weigh in at 2 pounds and strombollis that can feed two all for less than 10 bucks. The interior is nothing special just some wood benches and folding tables has kind of a college vibe.

“I love this place”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

I love cheese pizza and this place has a pie that will rival even the best in the area. The thin crust is NY style and the sauce is tasty - and not sweet. Their vodka sauce is great as well - it's a bit thick for me and I usually don't indulge, but it has a great flavor. Their salad bar is out of the world - nothing too unique but the veggies are extremely fresh and there is a nice variety. Great lunch specials too!

“Awesome every time”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

This is one of the best pizza/pasta places in the area. We went there the first time by accident due to every other restaurant was packed. But I am glad we did. The food never disappoints. Between the HUGE breadsticks and the awesome garlic bread. Along with the huge New York size slices of pizza and overflowing sauce that comes with any of your pasta. The Alfredo is probably the best I have found in town. The service is usually top notch as well. Awesome all around.

“it's probably the best in town, but . . .”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

It's probably the best in town but if you're there by yourself or with one other person then you don't have the opportunity to try their signature pie. the thin is good and there's 2 styles of pan. their signature pie is prepared 2 different ways. it's 16 pounds of meats, veggies and cheeses, but when you come by yourself your only alternative is to buy it by the slice, a 8 dollar and 50 cent, 2 pound your favorites but its prepared earlier and tastes as if it were microwaved. and believe me it was microwaved. they would be better off if they offered a 2, 4 or 6 pounder freshly made.
