Pizza was sub par (bad). The veal parmigiana was not good either. Seemed like the quality of the veal was poor. Very bland. One word: Yucky. Expected more from a mom and pop place. During the week they have a lunch buffet ($7.95 normally). Not a bad deal if the quality of food was better. The salads were better than average and the rosemary potatoes were excellent... Otherwise "forget about it!!"

The pizza is great. So is the spaghetti. We usually receive very good service. Salads are just iceberg lettuce with some add-ins, but the minestrone soup is good. Great option when you need to feed a crowd.

We mostly get pizza to go. They always make it the way we order it, extra thin. The pizza's are a little small for the price but they are very taste. The salads to go are great as well.

I was getting food next door to this place and my kids saw the word 'pizza' and decided that was what they wanted- unfortunately! The stench inside was so terrible that my 7 year old said "It smells gross in here!" Embarrasing, but so true! It smelled like mildew and has not been made over or possibly cleaned in a very long time. I suggested we leave, but my 9 year old was steadfast on his mission. To my dismay, We ordered a few slices and had to wait outside because we couldn't stand the stench. The girls at the hostess stand were very kind. I noticed a 'help wanted' sign and when a guest asked for an application, they responded that they didn't have any- but help is exactly what they need! They were kind enough to come bring our food to us outside. Thank goodness! I was so leary about my kids eating food from there. If they can't keep the place from reeking, how can they keep a clean kitchen? The kids ate the pizza, but didn't finish it. It seemed to be a precooked slice that they threw some toppings on and ran through the oven. Likely old pizza. They said it was okay, and more than anything I'm just happy they didn't get sick. The place had a decent number of guests considering how disgusting it was. All I know is that I will never go back unless Robert Irvine comes with his Restaurant Impossible crew to give this place a complete overhaul!
