Love their super fresh salads. Pizzas also very good. Service can be iffy depending upon how busy they are.

I find normally clam pizzas can be on the... More

Great pizza but their meals are great too! My last visit was a take out order of pizza and the Chopped Pasta Salad. Chopped pasta salad is my all time favorite salad with chopped romaine with grilled chicken, crumbled bacon, gorgonzola cheese, ditalini pasta, red onion, cherry tomatoes and sliced mushrooms topped with basalmic dressing. The salad is large enough... More

This is my go to place for dinner. Whenever I have late night meetings, come back from months of travel, or just want an amazing dinner I head over and see Jack and Luigi for soup, salad and........depends on the night. Sometimes I have Jacks Penne no peppers (succulent jumbo shrimp, yummy Italian sausage and amazing red sauce) or the... More

Smallish interior, nondescript exterior but this New London landmark is bringing real quality and flavor to it's patrons. There's a small bar, great house wines and draft beer. The food is excellent, the very best salads in the area. Calamari is different and delicous! In a slightly spicy cream sauce. Pizzas are small with great variety. Try a red &... More

We ordered the clam pizza that was thin crust. Served with red and yellow peppers, Carmelized onions, crispy bacon and clams. Sprinkled with cheese. Prior to the pizza coming we... More

This place was somewhere I've always wanted to try...I heard the calamari was great. I wasn't disappointed!! The calamari was delicious and we also had the butternut squash ravioli which wasn't as good...a little undercooked. The drinks were good....Cosmo and a peach martini... And the service was very good. Their bread is delicious as well. Stop by! You won't be... More

Very good service here. Had the Caesar with grilled chicken which was very good and a nice large plate; friend had penne with shrimp and sausage which she enjoyed very much. Good glass of white wine.

I had heard Jack got into the restaurant business and have been wanting to visit. Jack and his son had helped coach my son on QB skills and I figured it would be nice to spend some money. Stopped in on a Thursday, late lunch, place was very busy. I was looking forward to a leisurely lunch but as soon... More

My major complaint was rushed service. Why, I'm not sure, since there were only 3 other tables occupied and it was 7:15 and they are open until 9 ! I like to think that the waitress was inexperienced and trying to be helpful but after the 4th time of "can i take that plate for you?" I was getting annoyed.... More
