Greeted and seated by a lovely staff member who besides the strong ascent he was very attentive. Pizza was thin in the middle with a nice crusty edge, pasta was delicious. The place could use a face lift but it’s been open for many years...More

This place is great for a quick pizza but the red sauce pasta dishes are outstanding. Reasonably priced and family friendly it is open all day so great for a late afternoon snack or early dinner. Service is layed back and very friendly.

Very wide selection of food, presumably to cover as many tastes as possible, which is not always a good thing. But almost everybody in our party of six enjoyed their choice of lunch, so it worked for us. Prices were acceptable. Good, friendly service in...More
