“Great Italian food, pizza, sandwiches in Silicon Valley”

You would never guess that some of the best Italian food is tucked away in a strip mall off of busy Lawrence Expressway. This is a great place in Silicon Valley for good Italian food and pizza. The service is good, food is good and it's definitely not a fancy place. Great for big groups.

There's actually not that many NY style pizzerias around the bay so this one was a blessing to have close to our hotel. We ordered a large half pepperoni half combination for pick up and it smelled amazing driving back to the room. The pizza was large, delicious and nicely chewy but a tad too oily. Although I've never been to New York you don't have your have been there to know this is good pizza.

I ordered the weight watchers pizza with lots of good veggies and the cheese sticks. The pizza was great and I had a good overall experience. The cheese sticks were chewy and good as well.

We have been on the pizza hunt to replace our favorite place hangout (fave place sold so owner could retire :( ) Giovanni's pizza was edible, but ho hum at best. We had the thin crust combination: tomato sauce was flavorless, pepperoni was salty, pizza toppings were skimpy; pizza menu was lackluster and unimaginative. Two of us easily consumed and entire medium; we usually can only eat ½ of good a medium pizza.

Service was also ho hum. We were basically told to sit anywhere. A gentleman took our order, but no one ever came around to check on us/the food. When the bill came, the gal asked how our dinner was; I said that it was not that good and was surprised that she didn't inquire further. We will be continuing our search for a good pizza within 10-15 minutes drive from our home.

Value for the meal was just okay. We'd gladly pay more for a great pizza, or even a good one.
