After a day of outlet shopping, we wanted some nice authentic pizza. Once we read “since 1957,” we looked no further. Loved the quaint nostalgia of the dining room. (There is another side for the “to go” orders.) We ordered two jumbo meatballs and garlic...More

Old fashioned atmosphere, very classic joint, the way we like it! Dimly lit, cozy ambience! The food was so authentic Italian, and the staff was fantastic. Huge selection, all food tasted from scratch. Please do not miss this gemstone on Franklin St!

Never have used drive-thru service - always chose delivery or the experience of dining in their now-quaint atmosphere, what once seemed normal for an Italian Pizzeria. Best Pizza In The USA! Nice ice-cold beer, too.

OK drive thru service. Ordered tacos and garlic cheese bread, none of which really tasted good. Garlic cheese bread was just ok, tacos were pretty bad. They are definitely NOT like they used to be, although I am talking 40 years ago here. Not the...More
