    AMAZING. The white pizza, cheesesteak (chicken & beef), & deli sandwiches are great. I've never been disappointed. Expect to wait awhile sometimes, as this place gets busy! Well worth the wait though.

    Call in your order for both dine-in or take out orders. It gets busy and may take 20+ minutes to put your order in.

    Great small Italian deli with fantastic hot and cold sandwiches. Usually go to get lunch but the store is filled with quality Italian products like Olive Oil, wine, and gelato.

    The fettuccine with Italian sausage is alarmingly phallic but nom! The marinara sauce is correct, without too much sugar. Also you get two slices of garlicky garlic bread.

    One of the best local Italian places I've had! The gnocchi and side of meatball was delicious and more food than I could finish since you get a side of bread and salad with the whole meal. Delicious!
