Me, my wife and son stopped here to eat lunch. We have never been there before. I ordered 2 mega slices of pizza... Not knowing these things are Huge. For $2.50 a slice you can't beat it!! My son got a steak sub. Said it was the best one he has ever had!! My wife had a panini and liked it very much also!! The waitress was friendly and kept our drinks full. We will be going back to this place next time we r in Philly!!

We really enjoyed our pizza but the service was terrible. It might have been better if the lady had smiled a little bit. She came to our table after we had been there for about 10 minutes (and it's a very small place) and glared at us. I assumed she was ready to take our order so we started to speak, only to be told that she wasn't ready yet. Okay.....then why was she standing there looking at us. Finally she took our order and the pizza arrived fairly quickly and I have no complaints about the pizza. It was very good. That was the last time we saw her until she brought the check (after we walked up to the register and asked for it). We even had to walk to the counter to ask for refills.

We had walked over from Independence Square to Elfreth's Alley and were hungry on the way back. This small place, staffed (when we were there) by three seasoned and efficient ladies provided a great cheesesteak quickly, and at a great price. Servings are huge and delivered quickly, and we had the feeling we were eating the "real thing". Warm, welcoming service and great, well prepared food.

The pizza was OK, but it was nothing to write home about. I ordered two slices, and they were twice the size of the usual slice. I wish that the server (who should smile sometimes) would have mentioned that to me after taking the order and before serving it.. One slice went to waste. I don't think that I will go back.

This woodsy, friendly spot is in a very central Old City location, and we always stop there on our annual winter weekend. It's a great, very casual, inexpensive place to come inside and take a break from sightseeing. The staff is always welcoming. My husband likes the personal pizza. I found my Spinach Pie was phyllo dough with a suggetion of spinach, but we were glad to be there. The pleasant atmosphere is the bigger lure, to me, than the food, which is perfectly adequate, though not memorable.
