Ferentino's is a nice, small pizzeria. The pizza is tasty and quick. The service is friendly and the atmosphere is a nice, quiet small-town feeling pizzeria.

Checked out this place based on the reviews and was very pleased. But if you're looking for a sit down place you won't get it at this location. We were told sit down is at their other location. Nevertheless, we were pleased with our food....More

You can pick our carry-out order from the others: one X-large thin crust cheese and sausage, and a thin crust medium veggie specialty. After too much eating out (Chinese, seafood, burgers, BBQ), we needed something different, which happened to be the same stuff we always...More
