We had the Godfather pizza without black olives. All of the ingredients on the pizza were bake just right and had a nice crunch when I bit into them. However, the pizza dough seemed to be plian flour and water. It also was baked just right and had a nice crunch to it, but the dough had little flavor. The... More

My husband chose the spaghetti with meat sauce and meatballs I chose the manicotti. To say the portions were huge is putting it mild!! My mouth is watering... More

We walked in and asked if they had desserts. The gentleman at the counter said they did, and asked if he could bring us the... More

calling this place a pizza place is like calling the Ritz a motel. Fantastic food with a long history at this location. if you can get the friendly host to talk about its' history - it will enhance your visit. the lasagna was delicious and a large serving it was. my wife had the chicken piccata and raved about it....

We ordered 'The Godfather'- oh my goodness, so good! Quaint atmosphere, great service, and Italian music in the background. Would definitely return!

After ordering chicken parmesan for hubby and chicken piccata for myself our server brought out some fabulously fresh bread with olive oil dipping sauce. Everything we ordered was prepared fresh and was fabulous. Our server Christo was great;super friendly, knowledgeable about the extensive history of the business, and... More

The food here is OK but not remarkable, nor is the service, for which the restaurant AUTOMATICALLY adds 18% tip to your bill. We were really put off by this and will not return.
