This place hit the target dead center. Authentic food, wonderful welcoming staff. Was the perfect place to have wonderful Italian fare. The food was bountiful, expertly prepared and presented. Special of the day offered Pasta Bolognese. For the uninitiated this is a classic that takes a special preparation and they were spot on. Mussels looked wonderful but the option went... More

Originally we planned on Mexican but it did not open until 1130 am. So we decided on pizza. Found staff very helpful and friendly. Lots of choices and great service Very clean also. Will definitely return and recommend.

Food is ok. Mediocre Italian considering the neighborhood. You get only 4 shrimp for $15.95 and a tub of overdone pasta when you order the shrimp scampi. They tried to tell us they were bigger sized shrimp to justify the cost, but it's not true considering we are food service professionals and we know better. We told the manager we... More

I like the pizza here, but I have a problem with the owner who always up charges, if the cost is $39.50 he'll gladly take your $40 and keep the change. leaves a bad taste in my mouth. He has other employees who will say "$10" to a $10.15 charge.... not Mr. Opera..... I think I''ll find my pizza elsewhere.

Neighborhood Italian. Excellent pizza but they had other Italian dishes and salads. Lunch was good. Very authentic - the Caesar salad even had an anchovy on it! You can get half trays or full trays of different pastas like ziti or lasagna to go.

The pizza is consistently delicious. They are friendly in the phone and have speedy delivery. The dough is cooked perfect. The perfect amount of sauce & cheese. Thanks for rocking it.

On the spur of the moment, took a chance and was able to get a Good Friday, 8:00 seating at Francoluigi's / HighNote Stage. Entrance is through the corner pizzeria, where you are lead into the dining room next door. The main dining room is warmly decorated with wood panel and a plethora of 8 X 10 photos adorn the...
