Absolutely my favorite pizza! So cheesy, never too dark. Staff is very friendly. Had a huge 50th celebration on the back deck a couple of years ago. Great catering. The night was a blast!!

We recently went to fat Tony's for dinner. I had the lasagna and my wife had the fettuccini Alf redo. The wait staff is friendly and the food is reasonably priced. We have eaten here several times and always had a good meal.

Wow this place is great. Homemade meatballs, blue crab dip and a heck of a beer selection. Try the Limoncello they make on premises. Place very clean, good service very helpful staff about the area. We'll be back!
