$3 beer, $16.95 four course eggplant parm. Come on, gotta go. Al Fresco dining was great, but you share your meal with the sparrows, and body with the skeeters. Incredible prices, food isn't gourmet, but wholesome. 5 minute walk from Art Museum.

A great choice where you can enjoy having a good time with family and friends. Just what a nice time out is all about. You will enjoy the variety on their menu. Gene P. Coplay, PA

Simply the best stromboli you will ever eat. We get the chicken with onions & mushrooms--and substitute broccoli for green peppers. Fantastic comfort food!!

Cute little pizza joint with yummy pizza (crisp crust, nice sauce) & great service. However, if you're not used to buffalo spice, stay away from the buffalo chicken fries! Two of us couldn't finish more than 1/2 the order because they were so spicy. But,...More

We parked in the lot beside ESP and visited both places. Some street parking near Pete's if I remember but the parking lot was the easiest and most convenient for both.
