We have been coming here for years and the pizza tastes just like NY pizza. The calzones are awesome too! The owner is from Naples and he makes everyone feel at home. Highly recommend!

The food could have been hotter. The service was just okay with a bit of disorganization. The veggies could have been fresher in the salad. The tomatoes were over ripe.
