The food here is phenomenal. Always hot, fresh, and tasty. I was a regular customer when we lived closer. We did stop going there, however when we entered the front door to find the pizza-maker SITTING ON THE PIZZA COUNTER. A staff behind should never come in contact with the food-prep areas. That turned us off for a good long time. Within the past 2 months, we've visited here again for the first time in about 6 years. What a shame. I'm sure the quality of the food and the attention to detail hasn't changed, but the derriere on the counter was just more than I could handle!

Whether you dine-in or take-out you will not be disappointed with the great food. All of the Italian dishes are superb and the home made bread is warm right out of the oven and is fantastic. Their cheese steak is also one of the best I have had in the valley. It is BYOB but a complimentary glass of wine is provided with each entree. You don't want to miss this place!
Best pizza in the area. They don't skimp out on toppings and a nice balance between sauce and cheese where other pizzerias tend to favor one or the other. Their small is a medium anywhere else and the large is a feast! It is a must try if you have never had it, I've lived in this area my whole life and I can't believe it took me so long to find this gem.
