Best pizza around always consistently great. The choices of pizzas are vast plus the sauce is very tasty. Love the thick crust.

Great spot for family or group. Delicious garlic bread, lasagna, pizzas and fettuccine Alfredo. Don’t let the line at the entrance through their Italian storefront worry you - it moves quickly. Our server ‘Bebba’ was lovely and attentive.

Our pizza was fine American pizza... Not like pizza you would get in Italy though.
The little store you walk through does have some of my favorite Italian biscotti though!

I ordered a Pepperoni pizza and loved it. I think the cost was about $15 and it was enough for 2 people, lots of cheese, nice sauce, and a bready crust that I liked! PLUS quick delivery.

This is what I refer to as a tourist trap.
Located in little Italy. Recommended by hotels. All hype no yum.
We arrived and there was a out at 25 min wait but moved fast the line goes thought the little store. It looks adorable. Simple. Rustic. Inside is dark wine decanters signed by patrons gone by decorate the ceiling. Again so sweet right. !
Bustling with people everywhere. We were so excited. We travel to Italy almost every summer so looking forward to authentic pizza. There were three of us so we ordered three pizzas. It was the worst. All three. Not at all Italian style first of all. We even asked thin crust etc... yes yes we were told. It is super thick crust heavy just butchered with. Mozzarella. It’s was one of the worst pizzas I have had. Zero flavor. On any of the three pizzas we ordered.
We each had one slide and left 3 almost full pizzas at the table.
The Capuchino and espresso was served up
Quickly and the wine kept coming so hence not zero stars but two. But. I would skip the line and go elsewhere.
