Still searching for a good pizza place near this location. The special cheesesteak pizza had packaged slices of make believe cheese!

“Sad”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

We've frequented this restaurant for a long time and our most recent visit this evening was just terrible, undercooked pasta is inexcusable not once but twice, the ingredients listed in the menu are not included in the dishes, the stuffed rigatoni is not stuffed, our party of 9 was just not impressed with the food and the waitress made excuses for the long delay of the dinner service and the pasta being undercooked.
I was surprised at the dish I've enjoyed for many years that it was under seasoned tasteless and lacking many of the ingredients of previous dinners. they used to serve a nice bruschetta with dinner and stopped that and now have gone back to bread and butter. Lately the pizza also has suffered from lack of taste and is underdone most times. I left feeling embarrassed for my friends and family as they traveled quite a distance to come to what was once my favorite Italian Eatery.

“Excellent service & primo food”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

Have been here twice in 2 years and each time the service was a cut above...it is in their company culture because every person there is customer focussed. They treated us (all out of towners) very well and without the attitude of "we are doing you a favor" that seems prevalent in many places in this area. The food was plentiful, well prepared with good ingredients and exceptionally tasting. The lasagna was good (needed flakes to heat it up though) and the starter salad was huge and fresh. The subs looked sizable and tasty also. Highly recommend these folks for both their outstanding service and their outstanding menu.
