Great pizza, good service. Dislike the fact they do not serve alcohol (wine). Italian food and wine are perfect.

Service is excellent, portions are large (there's a reason they charge $3.75/meatball). Quality is typical Italian - nothing extraordinary. Good for families.

Amazing lunch specials. Great food. The pizza is good; but, the stuffed eggplant is incredible. Have a meatball sub for lunch and you will prob have food left over for dinner. Just a reminder - no alcohol is served here; but, u can get food to go.

Very, very good pizza. We ordered the Fit for a King pizza and Canadian bacon and extra cheese on thin crust. Pizza came and there was no Canadian bacon. We called this to the attention of our waitress and she said, "No, it's there. They said so in the kitchen." Anyway, we didn't argue but it really wasn't there. Even so, it was a delicious pizza. Our waitress never checked on us again once our pizza was delivered and we both had empty drink glasses quite some time before we were finished eating. She did check on us right before we finished and replenished our drinks. Oh yeah, we also had salad which was good, crispy, and fresh. This was not our first visit to this restaurant, just my first review. The food has always been good and this is the first time that we had rather spotty service. We will definitely return.

We at Michelenas agree that the service in this instance was not good. We have addressed the problem and have Re- tested our entire wait staff. Glad you enjoyed the food. Thank for your review
