Very good Italian food and Greek Food as well as pizzas. Large portions make sharing easy or 2 meals for take out. Only key for pizza is ask for light cheese, otherwise they do use a LOT.

I believe that they do have some desserts, but I am not absolutely sure. The pizza we had was so filling that we never considered dessert.
