4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2014 via mobile

We eat at Espisitos frequently. The food is great and the portion sizes out of bounds! The dipping oil spices cannot be matched and I often crave it. The huge downfall of the place is the noise. It gets so loud, especially in the Middle area that it's almost unpleasant. Last time we visited, I moved to the seating area in the back bar area which helped a bit. Not sure how this could be resolved but it can be maddening. Add to it an accordion player and you will need cotton for your ears. Try the strombolis, pasta ala vodka or the chicken parm and spaghetti. You will not be disappointed.

Thank NurseMaria

“no refund, messed up the order”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2012

they got the order wrong, wouldnt return money, especially the tip, delivery guy told me 19.75 and i gave 25, here it was 13.75, i dont give 11 dollar tips and they tried to blame it on me having an old menu, and gave me a run around saying they had to talk to the boss and he was out of town for the week this was after i talked to him an hour before hand. Never order from there again. poor customer service, do they have green cards?

“The absolute best pizza...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2008

The absolute best pizza in Berks County! The sandwiches are also good but could be a little bigger. The stromboli and Italian dishes are worth a try but its hard to get past their pizza on the menu.
