We stop in based on a recommendation from the front desk of the hotel we were staying at, and we're glad we did. The service was very quick, the pour for their wine is very generous, and the food was very good.

Six of us came here on a Tuesday evening for dinner. My dish was billed as a filet mignon special. The meat was NOT a filet mignon (someone lied to the cook who came out to lie to me). It was rubbery, chewy, and tough. We ordered ice cream for dessert but never got it. My coffee cup came half... More

We were a group of 11 that wanted to eat before a local comedy show. It was a Saturday night which is a very busy night for this restaurant but they were able to accommodate us. To make it even harder on them we didn't all show up at the same time and wanted separate checks. None of this was... More

Consistently very good. Our neighborhood go to place. Great sauce, excellent service. Slippery floors and a bad parking lot however

Thje renovation done to the restaurant is a vast improvement to it's decor previously. The food is consistently good and the staff is delightful. The kitchen can some times get bogged down resulting in slow service but that is infrequently.

They just expanded the place and still it only has one bathroom and the floor is very slippery for some reason. Dinners are decent. Pizza is amazing. Parking lot is a disaster. If they delivered i would give them much more business. The staff isnt very friendly but they make a great pizza.

The bill will be high, but the food is very good. Try the calzone, it's something special. Salads aren't cheap, but they're fresh. Takeaway: expensive, but high quality.

I'm a bit biased. I grew up in the area and now I work about 5 minutes away from the restaurant. In my opinion this is the best pizza on Long Island. Along with fantastic pizza, you're doing yourself if you don't order their three different types of garlic knots. I could go on and on about their panni sandwhiches,... More

My wife and I took my daughter and son-in-law out to dinner for their anniversary. The service was excellent, the food terrific and the prices were very reasonable. We will go back.

A recent visit on a friday night brings a nice crowd of people to the restaurant and a line for the pizza. We ate the pizza, it was hot and good. Nice thick doughy slice, sauce was good, cheese was good. Nice atmosphere.
