    We waited in line & the locals kept telling us how great the food & it was! We had spaghetti with garlic & oil, ravioli florentine, spumoni gelato for dessert. Our waitress Lisa was GRRAT!

    Been going here since childhood, about 45 YEARS. This place is it for pizza! We are never disappointed (except to find the long line at the door!) Quaint, old school decor, you just feel good here +++

    Get the salad with cheese. That is worth the hype. The pan pizza, however, is not. It's good, just not the spectacular thing it's hyped up to be. And steer clear of the canned veggies.

    The smell Antipasto salad is bigger than the large Lasagna. Both made for a great dinner. Bring Cash. Cause they do not accept cards.

    Antipasto Piccolo with stick cheese and house dressing is good (big enough for two or one really hungry salad lover). Best pizza in northeast Ohio!

    Award winning pizza! You'll know why locals call it the "cheese salad" after you order a side salad topped with mozz.

    I don't get the hype. Greasy average pizza with canned vegetables that is way overpriced. For a large pizza, canned green pepper cost us 3 bucks. Ridiculous.
