We went for the first time this week and everything we tried was delicious. We shared a works pizza and our grandson had a calzone with pepperoni. Everything was fresh and delicious and their sauce has a wonderful flavor. I want to go back soon, they list several Fra Diavolo dishes on the menu and I can't wait to try... More

The marinara sauce they use is delicious - just the right consistency with wonderful flavors! Dinners come with a salad. Pizza is tasty. They have a good selection of bottled beer and wines. Prices are great for the portions and quality of the food. Service is friendly - though a bit on the slow size. The owner can be seen... More

A great place. Great food, excellent value. They have a wine list and beers if you care to indulge. Even though they ran out of salad, was still a home run. Give it a try - you won't be sorry!

This is a small mom & pop local restaurant that serves good, hot Italian food! The place was clean and the servers were excellent. Try the pierogis appetizer - fantastic! They gave us free soup which was very tasty. Penne & rigatoni were excellent choices as well! Go try them out and say goodbye to the chains!

Was craving Italian....not any more. This place is wonderful! Quaint. Great decor. Family owned and operated. Customer service was phenomenal! I was treated so well. Felt like part of their family. But the food..... oh my Italian! So good. Generous portions. Mouth watering. Im going back....soon. Try the Zitti Bolognese.

food was very good, generous portions, and the service was great. We had calamari to start, and I had triple pasta with homemade garlic bread and my husband had a pizza. We both had enough to take home and have another meal from it. The people that worked there made it even better though. They were totally on it. I... More
