Potestas Pizza has delicious pizza, and they have certain days of the week where it is half price, making it even better. They have very tasty sandwiches and pastas too.

We were staying in Wadsworth and used Grub Hub to deliver our food which was great service. The shrimp alfredo was wonderful as well as the spaghetti and meatballs, will order again when visiting the area as we do every three months.

Excellent buffet. If your looking for atmosphere skip it. But great food. From pizza to pasta. There was Italian beef calzones Italian sausage with garlic bread. Too much to mention. Great place to eat in or order out.
