We'd passed Polito's before but never stopped. We're glad we did. Adrian, our waiter, made excellent recommendations and even brought a sample for us. We ordered the large thin-crust supreme pizza, which was excellent. Adrian suggested a side of their specialty vodka cheese sauce for...More

Great pizza and wonderful Italian dishes. The portions are enormous and most can easily be shared. Their pizza by the slice is gigantic. Get that and the salad bar and you're stuffed. Friendly, fun wait staff.
