Stopped by after seeing "Aladdin" (great show, by the way), it was nearby and quick. Very large selections of pizza, sandwiches, soup and salads. Two of us got a pizza slice (typically large NY size) and one got a sandwich. Steak and cheese pressata (sandwich)...More

We ate here twice on a Saturday, before and after a matinee. Food was fresh and tasty. Servers were pleasant and accommodating. Check out the wraps--loaded with meat and reasonable. Only suggestion: Unlock the rest room door.
