This Italian eatery has the taste of New Jersey in Florida. Friendly staff serve many traditional favorites as well as some unique treats such as their Pizza Pinwheels.

My family and I ordered their pizza and it was great! I liked how the pizza slices were all different sizes that way you could get a small piece or a large piece! We got it delivered and it was still piping hot by the time it got to our hotel! I think it took 30 minutes which wasn't long... More

Not sure what to think of the reviews. I'm a pretty positive person but that is just really bad pizza. Sauce was not good, cheese was not good, crust was fine

They do a rousing business at dinnertime, mostly pick-up orders. The pizza ain't NY/New Haven abietz tho. No one complained, yet pizza did not get 5 star reviews. It's local and certainly far better than chain store products. Salads were good. You can see the staff are all involved in taking and getting orders correct and out.

Bought a $49 Groupon for 4 people - two appetizers to share, 4 drinks, 4 pasta dinners. We had probably 20 different pasta dinners - with meats, seafood- regular prize between 9-$12! We could not finish it all. They owner is from NJ and the décor is all NJ type items. Real interesting place to go.

Huge pizza, amazing Stromboli and pasta dishes await your tastebuds. While you wait for your meal gaze at all the memorabilia on he walks. What a joy for folks like who originated in NJ and enjoy a step back in time and taste.
