We came here with a large group. The food was very good. I had eggplant, but was expecting spaghetti with it,but got fettuccine instead. The iced tea was out of the tap which wasn't good at all.

Our family went here because of my daughter's jazz music class assignment. It wasn't too crowded when we got there on the late side of dinner (7:30p). The restaurant is on the smaller side, about 50-75 seats plus a small lounge/bar area. They have several large screen monitors showing different sporting events, baseball and COPA soccer match between Chi and Mex. The music was excellent and non-stop. The only thing about the music was that it was so over powering that you couldn't hear conversations without shouting!

The pre-order food service was good and attentive. But once we placed our pizza order, it took sooo long to get our food. We couldn't figure out why. There wasn't too many customers or busy in the restaurant. It just took so long. One medium pizza, that's it. Did they go to NY to get their dough? Make it from scratch at time of order? Must have taken 30 mins or more! To top it off, the pizza wasn't that good and they charged me an extra $2 for for making our pizza half meat lovers, half chicken pesto and they were the same price! And nowhere is it posted in the menu or informed that there is an extra charge for that type of order. Why? It shouldn't be that way. Not too sure I would recommend this place for food unless you want to wait.

My husband & I went there, after a funeral wake about between 7 & 8pm for dinner. We walked in, no greeting of any kind or a sign telling us to sit ourselves, so, we finally went to the counter & asked if we can sit at a table or what to do. She said," I'll be right with you, just sit wherever you want. There was only a few people there. It wasn't like it was crowded or busy. The restaurant is lacking some kind of organization. The food was ok. Thank goodness for that.

Great food and service at a decent price. This is our go-to place for happy hour, after hours, take out, delivery, anytime!! Sign up for their email specials. We got garlic bread, salad, spaghetti with meat sauce and a pizza for just over $20. Also try their wings and fries. Great price and it tastes terrific!!

The menu says "authentic NY style thin crust"...which, no, not even close. It is much thicker than NY style and more bready. However, we liked the pesto linguine and my husband loved the Chicken Parmigiana.
