Friendly but totally inattentive staff. Wings tasted freezer burnt. White pizza was underdone and flavorless. Tomatoes were mostly core and I think we're frozen. Supreme pizza had onion skins, jarred mushrooms. Not a good experience 😞

We stayed across the street at the Comfort Inn. The place that advertised in the hotel stopped delivering at 9:30, Pomodoro stopped at 10:00. We were exhausted from traveling, so grateful they were still open that late on a Thursday. I had the spinach pizza...More

The service is very good and staff are nice. They bring out rolls and butter which are freshly made. They have a variety of entrees. The food is great!

Run by Italians, the cuisine has as little to do with Italy as Olive Garden -that is, nothing at all. Go home and open a can of Chef Boyardee and you are closer to Italy than in this modified triple wide trailer (or so it...More

It's not the location or the atmosphere. It's the food! Yummy bubbling over with cheese pastas . Warm soft tasty bread. Great Italian food at reasonable prices. If this place had "atmosphere" you'd be glad to pay $40 a dish. Glad we finally went. Can't...More

Stopped here while visiting from out of town. Food was very average, service was very slow. Soup was bland and salad was just ok. Kids had spaghetti and other pasta dishes and weren't impressed. Will not be returning to eat here again.
