No piizza chain here....owner on the premises making the pizza,s up front and personal! Lots of great smells and the pizza is the best on the island. They have tables for eat in also. Many other dishes besides pizza on the menu and the gRlic knots are in a class by themselves.

If you're looking for an Italian authentic pizza... this is not the place for that... If you're looking for a NYC style of pizza.... This is the comes really, really close. Maybe... More

Want the best Italian food you can get? This place is incredible. Had some meatballs and the veal is unbelievable. Never had such good, homemade sauces.

Standard pizza and pasta restaurant. The food is always good and the prices fair. Ordering takeout is always quick. Nothing fancy, just good food for the money.

Easy to get to and park. Service a bit slow but food was plentiful, large portions, and free garlic knots. I had Chicken Parm with angel hair pasta. Sauce seemed a bit sweet. Vodka Penne sauce was way to creamy - too light but good. Nice place for eating on a budget. Pleasant atmosphere and they accommodated 5 people at... More

This is my favorite pizza joint! This is the only place I have only had pinwheels. Don't know what this is? If you don't, I would suggest you go during lunch hour and find out. It's better than pizza, calzones or anything I have ever had at a pizza parlor. It's dough and cheese and topping heaven!
