This has always been one of my favorite places to eat in Ely. We had not had an opportunity to stop for a while so yesterday we decided to take two of our kids there for an early dinner. We got there a couple of minutes before they unlocked the door so we were the first to be seated by... More

Visiting friends in Ely who always have Sunday dinner here. Four of us joined them and we're glad we did. Good Pizza and salad. Good service. Ok beer selection, though out of the Italian beer I wanted to try. Would return.

We stopped here for dinner after a local football game. We were seated very quickly and our food arrived also very quickly. We ordered two pizzas, both of which were delicious. The wait staff was very friendly.

Great family Italian food. Have stopped here many times over the years for dinner, Love their pizza, spaghetti and meatballs. I was happy to see they are now open for lunch. Portions are large.

Busy family friendly...read lots of children...restaurant. Friendly wait staff. But, the food and wine is mediocre. We tried 2 red wines, neither was particularly good..drinkable yes. And the large antipasto salad..which can easily feed 4..is mainly iceberg lettuce, lots of olives, mushrooms that appear out of a can..and stringy tasteless mozzarella. We shared the lasagna..again it can easily feed 2..the... More

Been coming to this place for more than 30 years. They've always had good service and the food is good for Italian. Ordered TO GO; the large ravioli red sauce, small salad and waffled on the garlic toast, thought it came with the meal, this is Italian, isn't it?? Grab and go, have other things to do. Get back, settle... More

Portions are huge. The half portion entree is ample for most people as it comes with a salad and a pasta. Gluten free options that are well made. We had the chicken parmesan and chicken catchitore. Both were excellent. Charlotte was am excellent server. Would eat here again!

I have yet to find a pizza that I like better than Sir G's. The crust is so delicious and they use lots of cheese and not too much sauce. Just the way I like it!
