Well, it's famous in the area, but I find myself cooking at home than ordering take out. Bread they use is airy n fluffy...no taste. Pizza backfires from sauce. Mozz wedges good but holy freaking garlic in the sauce. Wedge slices are great. Pizza. Eh. Chewy crust...pull to chew.

Very friendly place, with a family atmosphere. Menu has many tasty options. Even has a separate room for a large party.

Their Italian food is all homemade and very fresh. Robert Rinaldi and his staff are very friendly. My wife cannot have red sauce or cheeze.He always makes her an all veggie pizza with oil. Very agreeable to people's wants.

The grinders are great as is the pizza. The back room dining is cozy and generally quiet. Take out is equally good in a friendly atmosphere.

I have been here probably 10 times in the past 3 months while visiting family. The staff is amazing, the owner greets people warmly, the wait staff is efficient and the pizza is fabulous! Excellent meatball grinders too! A real find in a small town!

I have not had a bad meal there in years. Chef's specials are always good additions to the standard Italian dishes, sandwiches and pizzas.

Diversified menu, fast service and great food. The eggplant is excellent. Sliced thin and if you order the peppers and onions on your grinder or sandwich, it's amazing.

Stopped on my home for eggplant grinder. It's ok, I've had better but the place is always crowed with locals eating in or take out. Like their onion pizza.

We have been dining in ( back room a lot of people miss) and doing take out so many years I can't believe I've never rated. Great meals, super pizza, and long time help have made this "piazza-rant" a favorite that we've supported for years. There's a reason this place has survived for so long!! Try it.

Food is average. If you want to experience the manager's unbecoming temperament toward his employees, this is the place to go to.
