I was in the area for work and I saw Bonta recommended on another site.  I'm so glad I stopped in!  I asked the nice man behind the counter what his favorite item was and he recommended the #3 pastrami sandwich with a little bit of mustard on it, so that's what I ordered.  I took it to go and...

I have been here several times in the past for lunch and have really enjoyed their meats and preparation. I finally went back for dinner and saw the wood-fired pizza oven and had expanded their seating as well. I would highly recommend their pizzas as they have a crunchy yet chewy crust so that slices don't crumble apart. They are... More

We were up in this area for a basketball game and found this place on TripAdvisor. The owner came over to take our orders, which included veggie lasagna, pizza, a giant calzone, a caprese panini, eggplant parm and bracciole. It all came out hot and quickly. There is a deli area here also where you could get carryout foods. I... More

The owner took our order and modified it to meet my wife's needs. He was very warm and made us feel so welcome. The place is not fancy, but the food is fantastic! All the local Italians come here to eat.

Wonderful food - owners are welcoming and service great. Pizza in wood fired oven, excellent deli and cookies. Italian take out specials are tops.

The search for the perfect pizza ends here - you have the real deal here. And everything else is also very good and tasty. For take home lots of options. The place developed a lot - for better - in the last few months, worth a visit!

Just moved nearby. We ordered the meat and vegetable lasagna to carryout. Absolutely outstanding. Very flavorful, light, not too cheesy and excellent sauce each for $7.99. For a causal, market/deli we could not have asked for more. Included was bread that was toasted with olive oil and garlic which was very good as well. Although this was carryout, the ambiance...

The owner is one of the most hospitable people I've met. She was kind, outgoing, and loves what she does. I had the Regina pizza and a glass of Pinot Grigio. Spectacular. I'd fly 2000 miles to enjoy this little place again.

First time here and very interesting. The menu was huge with many combos to select. Wanted to try them all. I had '# 1', prosciutto sandwich and tomato basil soup. Very tasty and delish.....😋 Plenty of parking and seating. This place is tucked away toward the back. I recommend this place for your dinning enjoyment.
