I have eaten in this restaurant and it is very nice, nothing fancy. But for the most part I have ordered their take out or delivered pizza and I like it very much.

This place has been nearby my house, for nearly 2 years, and haven't tried until recently - I am hooked!! Came here 3 times in 2 weeks. Pizza is delish! Sausage & Garlic pizza amazing! Other dishes good as well, tortellini and hot subs. People that work there are very nice, Vito. We'll be back for sure!

The owner Vito,enjoys his customers and is an awesome chef. The waitress is really sweet and makes you feel at home. Each pizza was delicious and the appetizers were good too.On another visit, I had the spinach ravioli and it was yummy. A hidden gem.

Excellent menu with a variety of the usual Italian staple choices. Efficient kitchen and wait staff. Good value in price versus portions. Not a bad meal over 30 years.
