“How is this place still in existence?”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2012

My review has only to do w/delivery, but my girlfriend and her family have ordered catering dozens of times.

My several experience have lead me to believe: customer service here is poor at best. Food has gone from passable at times to very mediocre. You can do a lot better. Consider alternatives.

“Great prices, huge portions, casual.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2010

Pros...huge plates and combo deals to eat there or take out. Friendly, accomodating staff. Their combo dinners/lunches have coupon codes and can usually feed 4 or 5. On Fridays they have a huge additional menu of fish items. Sandwiches and all plates are huge. Sandwiches and dinners are very good.
Cons...not much parking and can be dangerous on the main street, try and park on side street. They close earlier than most, think it is 9 p.m. Too bad they are not open with a limited menu (pizza, sandwiches till 11p.m.). Pasta can be over cooked. Can get really mushy if you take pasta type dishes to go.
Been going there for 20 years and thought they were Italian because the menu is Italian.
But the tastes were slightly off, not true Italian. LOL...they are not Italian, I just found out. The Pizza, Calzones, Arancini's and all founds are excellent to good. But if you crave some true Italian tastes their pasta combo dinners just don't match up to what you may have grown up with or know. I've never been to Fish Fridays...so, don't know if it's frozen or fresh, etc.? However, you can feed 2 adults and 2 or 3 children for $30 with their special combo deals. Great place, value and overall good cooks.
I think their combo deals need some variation...to many like kind things. For example 3 itmes all with red sauce. They could change the combo items to not repeat flavors. Then I'd be going there once a week.

Food is always tasty, and the choices are extensive (pizza, subs, dinners etc). Staff is super friendly, place is always clean. Parking is a bit tricky though!
