tiny little hole in the wall, but the food is really good and a huge selection of different kinds of grinders, pizza, etc! Can't beat it for a quick bite or take out. Love the peanut butter pie.

We stopped in to try the place based on word of mouth around time. The service was courteous and speedy. The grinders were a good size - flavorful with lots of good stuff inside and reasonable priced. The antipasto salad was really more a chef's salad with a lot of shredded mozzarella cheese on top and none of the briny... More

The place is small. I don't think I will eat inside. But the pizza was really good! The food was on time and the staff was nice. I love thin pizza with a lot of cheese and topping. This was the way I like it.

Tried this pizza and was not disappointed! At first the pies look small but they are loaded with toppings. The pizza is a deep dish style. We tried the cheese and several of the specialty pizzas (there were a lot of us) and each was good. We were staying at a beach close by so we picked them up and... More

I had heard there was new mangement or ownership, so I wanted to give it another try because it is conveniently located. But as usual I was greatly disappointed. Nothing is fresh, the food is thrown together with no care or concern and once again when I requested something it was completely ignored.

All we can comment on are the grinders on a Sunday afternoon for takeout when Hartford Grinder in Niantic was closed. But we have to say they were wonderful. Short wait for toasted grinders -- 2 eggplant parm with peppers , 1 Italian and a speciality: The Cambridge. Shaved steak, blue cheese, lettuce and tomato. Didn't regret trying this one!... More

This place has a hugh menu especially for such a small place. This should have been my first warning about quality. How can any restaurant, even larger ones, put out top notch food when they have such a hugh menu? My wife ordered a gyro. It was basically average, but would have been great if the pita wasn't toasted and... More

The pizza is o.k. and super cheap.... much better options downtown Niantic for greek style pizza. However, their salads are out of this world and they have a wonderful housemade creamy garlic dressing, homemade appetizers like spinach pie and onion rings. All very good. The staff is always very friendly. I think the decor could use something extra, the restaurant... More

Just wanted a grinder to take home so I decided we would give this place a try. There were only 4 tables with customers and it took 5 min for someone to take my order. I have worked in restaurants and it seems like they didn't know what they were doing. Odd place. The grinders were good but nothing special.... More
