I stopped by for a quick slice of pizza and was pleasantly surprised. Don't be turned off by the location.

I rang this pizzeria for a delivery as me and my fiancé are currently vacationing down the road! To begin with the person on the other end of the phone seemed friendly, yet when I asked about a coupon, the pizzeria hung up on me with no comment.... I was unsure as to weather my order went through so rang... More

My fiancé wished to order a pizza for me and her, we ordered a pizza for delivery. The lady then went on to hang up the phone, all she said was that she was unsure about a coupon. We rang back and proceeded to tell her about the misunderstanding, she went on to laugh and not apologise whatsoever. We decide... More

Food and service were both very good. My Philly cheese steak and pizza were both excellent. Friend had a large stromboli, said it was great. Priced fairly on food and drinks. We'll be back.

Ordered the large Calzone with 1 extras. I knew I wanted dinner for the next night. Good thing, it was high and delicious! Every piece of dough was filled. The sauce was straight out of a can which had a lot to be desired but this was difficult to take away from the taste of that huge Calzone!

We came here because there were a few good reviews online, and being newly relocated to the area, we were naturally looking for a few local places to call our spot. The service was great- Danyelle was overall super friendly; very attentive as a server, and eager to give advice/information about being new to the area. The food was great... More

We are not locals and stumbled upon Rico's ( it looks like a local restaurant as opposed to a tourist restaurant). We ordered salad and a pizza. The salad was very fresh, the pizza was OK, nothing special. The place was empty so service was quick.

Delicious!!!! Love love love the pizza and service here. Stromboli and sauce was my choice, but their pizza is equal in compare.

Perhaps our party was too large or they just were not ready to be open, not sure. Our waitress seemed confused and unable to take orders, although nice and polite. The pizza was delicious and I would have loved to try the antipasto salad that never came...others in our party had calzones and strombolis and gave them great reviews. The... More

We were a bit skeptical when we walked in, but the aroma had us intrigued. The pizzas and calzones were amazing! Definitely glad we stopped!
