I love SRQ Pizza and have been there many times. Once a year they treat you on your birthday for a free entree and desert. I had the meat balls and spaghetti which I love and two small cannolis for desert which I shared with my husband. The staff are all so efficient and pleasant anytime we've dined there. We'... More

By "typical" I mean relatively small seating capacity, friendly staff and customers....and very laid back. We had recently had pizza, so we both ordered veal parm. This was very reasonably priced. Not the best I've had, but it was quite good. Perhaps a bit over cooked. I'd go back to try the pizza.

As usual, John produced some of the best tasting food! He also has some of the most unique seasonings, like the lavender infused peppercorns in a grinder on the table and a seasoning I had never even heard of before ... mile marker 44 seasoning ... now I'm going to try to have to find it for myself.

It's difficult to believe that such high quality food and high quality service can be found in a strip mall on the side of Palmer Avenue but that is the case with PizzaSRQ. We have eaten dinner here several times and never been disappointed. If pizza isn't your thing then go for the eggplant parmesan over spaghetti or penne, then... More

Went for my birthday and had my favorite meal, eggplant parm. The serving was huge, especially for lunch, and included a salad and bread. Very reasonably priced. Delicious cannoli.

Took some friends to Pizza SRQ since we had been there once before and enjoyed the pizza. This time we had a terrible experience. The two apps we ordered, boneless wings and bacon wrapped feta cheese something were good but our pizza was cold and very bland. We ordered a supreme 20" pizza. It was embarrassing how awful it was!... More
