This location used to have good pizza and service. Maybe they've sold it because the last two visits our orders were incorrect. We ordered a pizza and added a topping which they forgot, but didn't forget to charge us for. When brought to their attention...More

We ate lunch here, had the lunch special which included a slice of pizza, salad and a drink. The slice was really two pieces, the salad was very generous and had lots of veggies in it. Good flavorful crust. Friendly service.

For more than a decade, nearly every take out pizza my family has ordered has been from this location of Tony & Alba's. They keep your previous orders on file, which is handy for recalling what size we usually get. We like the Tony's Gourmet,...More

Far more diverse than chain pizzas, menu includes breakfast and dessert styles as well as unique "traditional" pies. You can definitely taste the home made difference in pizzas as well as pastas and soup-salad offerings.

Ordered a small pizza to be delivered to my hotel room. Ordered a pepperoni, sausage, mushroom, and olive pizza. There was plenty of pepperoni. VERY little sausage or olives and not a single mushroom slice could be found (perhaps it was on there but i...More

We put the mushrooms under the cheese so they don't dry out in the oven. Sorry you had a bad experience. You never mentioned how delicious it was. Dave

Fantastic pizza...and lots of other things definitely Italian! They have games for the kids (no matter how old!) in an alcove, so the noise doesn't disturb the culinary delights!
