The food is really good here. It fills you up for a decent price. Staff if helpful & courteous. Try the Linguine w/ red clam sauce.

We ordered a few appetizers, a pizza and the manicotti. The appetizers arrived before the meal and were excellent. Zucchini sticks and French fries were very flavorful. The bruschetta was amazing. Our main dish arrived and everything was perfect. The manicotti was very cheesy and the pizza was cooked just right. The restaurant had plenty of seating and was a... More

The last time that my family and I got together here the staff was very helpful and nice. We had a variety of foods at our table and they all were wonderful.

For lunch, I always get the Chef Paolino's Tossed Salad which I don't see on the online lunch menu. It is a full meal and very tasty. Their pizzas are a step above the usual Pizza Hut, Domino's, etc. They have counter pickup service at lunch, rather than table service, which I prefer because it is faster and convenient.

always great food and atmosphere. Quick service. The servers and short order cooks know us by sight and ask where our other friends are if we all haven't arrived yet. This time I had the meatball sub and my friend had the wings and a salad. everything was great!

We come here often and the food is always good. It was good at this visit too. However we were a little put off by the group of high school kids that dominated the front half of the restaurant. The kids were fine really however because there where so many of them and the fact that they had their book... More

The food is terrific. We are huge fans of Chef P's pizza. If we are dining in, we order dinner and a pizza so we have leftovers for the next day. I highly recommend the Chef P's salad as well as the fettuccine Alfredo. Note to the newcomer--order at the counter and they will bring the food to you when... More

Good Italian meals for a good price. It's not fancy, in fact you order at the counter then they bring the food to your table. You get your own drinks at the sofa fountain, too. Great family restaurant. Very laid back and casual.

We had a large group (12 young, 10 parents) for lunch. They moved tables around so we could sit together. The food was delicious and despite the big crowd, we were served quickly and accurately. Always a great place to eat!
