The restaurant needs some serious updating, but you will not be disappointed. The pizza puff is HUGE! It was so big, we ordered one to split and still couldn't finish it! The deep fried mushrooms are yummy, and the ice was perfect! This place was...so busy! I would come again and again!More

Good food for low cost, I used to order Calzones from here ALL the time. It's like a medium pizza folded in half lol. Neighborhood has declined bad from what I hear, and it has been years(heard the owner was shot after closing)since I was...here. (Prior to 3/2016, TA date limit)More

I ordered the calzone because I saw it on tv. The flavor was good, but it was mostly crust. I also had the pizza which was not bad all all for the price. There are better tasting pizza in the area, but a good value...for the price.More

Pizza puff. The place is a small hole in the wall pizza place. Nothing fancy or inviting about it. The pizza puff though, makes up for what the building lacks in appeal. I judge a place by the food - and this place is awesome....If you're not a stickler for a fancy eatery and just want delicious and unique food...come here and order a pizza puff. Amazing.More

I went to a friend's house near Albano's. She decided to order out, we had the chicken it was delicious and the pizza puff was huge. Now, of course I can't get past the chicken it so good that is all I order.

I've been coming here for a few years now, and I had to write about it. I found out about the restaurant as I was watching the travel channel. They are known for their pizza puff. That is the only thing I ever get when...I am there. There is plenty of public transportation to get there. The inside of the place is somewhat small, but the staff is VERY friendly. If you live in the area, you can also get delivery. Just keep in mind that it takes time for the Pizza Puff to cook. If you like pizza, this is one place you might want to check out.More

I grew up eating this pizza and I assumed all pizza was this good. Their pizza puffs are second to none. I also just tried their wings and they were huge! There's a reason this place was on the travel channel

The pizza puff was very filling, plenty of flavor, very cheesy, and packed full of flavor. Unique food, really big calzone, 2 people can share it and be full. Atmosphere rough but if you are use to big cities you'll be fine. Took 30 mins...but that's how long the pizza puff is suppose to cook. Very good price.More
