As a retired chef, I have learned not to judge the quality of a restaurants food by it's looks. This has to be second best Italian/Sicilian quinine I have ever had. It is a family restaurant, from Sicily, so the food is authentic! The waitress, the daughter, Domenlco, of the owner, Antonetta, were a delight to talk to. The owner... More

This is a great hometown place. The pizza is terrific. The owner (a native of Sicily) makes her own sauce and the ingredients are fresh. The service is quick and courteous. My faqvorite is the the LArge 2 topping special it Pepperoni and italian sausage. You should also try the Steak salad.

In town to visit family and went here for dinner. Very good! I had chicken parmesan with a generous serving of spaghetti on the side, my nephew had a hot sub sandwich, several other meals of the same type and all were found to be very good. The waitress was nice, the facility is older but clean and well done.... More

My son and his family live in this beautiful city. Our first night there they took us the Original Italian Pizza restaurant. Apparently they frequently visit since the server knew them by name. We ordered several large pizzas and some other goodies appropriate for the younger grandchildren. The food was delicious and for me, unique. I had spent eight years... More

I called oip as they call it and ordered my food. Ask for delivery. When the delivery driver showed up he was in a red pick up that was smoking really bad. He was very rude with my wife and smelled bad and looked unclean. Food was great but lost us as customers due to the nasty red truck.

A group of us accidentally found this restaurant when we found the place we wanted to eat was closed. They have delicious food and the strombolis out of this world. Very easy to get an overload. Our server was Jessica and she did an outstanding job, very courteous and friendly. We were on a motorcycle trip on the Blue Ridge.

Original Italian is actually run by original Italians. They have excellent pizza and a huge variety on the menu. I really like the loaf of bread they serve with each meal. The bake in house and if you take some home, it makes great French Toast!! Prices are very reasonable.
