Italian Express Italian Express is a small restaurant that serves salads, pizzas, pastas, and sandwiches. This little place comes with reasonably priced food, and the food is amazing. They have many original ideas for food, and my favorite is their XL-Gyro Pizza. This pizza is amazing, and I give the food 5 stars. The food can be takeout or sit-in.... More
