I have found a short cut when I am the host of holiday dinners. Cinelli's has the best tasting sauce and it is gluten free a big plus since my sister can't have gluten. I just add my meatballs or pasta or sausage and dinner is served. Everyone loves it and I couldn't make it better myself.

Have only experienced delivery of pizza, calzones, salads, etc. Very convenient online ordering available...and you can pay, including the tip online with a credit card. Pizza is very good, as is the chicken roll. They have specials on certain days.

I never tried their pizza . . . and never will. A friend ordered a large Stromboli, we split it, and it was average at best. He also ordered two hot appetizers: the stuffed mushrooms and the stuffed peppers. These were nothing but slop -- no exaggeration -- and more than half went into the garbage pail. I can't believe...

Ok pizza place. I prefer Umbertos or King Umbertos for dinner. For pizza I like La Rosa's or DiAnna's. It's fine. A favorite for many
