They have a lunchtime buffet, but they can also make you anything you want from the menu. I'll bet if you can describe something to them, they can make it as well. They aren't Italian, but their Albanian background gives them a genuine talent for good food.

Great NY pie in TX...you don't go for the atmosphere....you go for the food! Lunch is fast as you can get pie by the slice, just like back east, you just don't have to deal with the NY attitude. Wonderful owners and you get the best hometown Abilene welcome. Man I miss this place.

Really good Italian, but needs some atmosphere to make it a little better.
