The original Balistreri's. Been going here forever. Love the big pizza and the light crispy crust. Nice cozy romantic spot for taking the woman and enjoy good company and food.

Christmas decorations were beautiful, atmosphere takes you back to your childhood. The pizza was delicious and plentiful. Recommend making reservations. We ended up buying a hundred dollar gift card for my father in law and getting a twenty dollar bonus card. Can’t be disappointed.
