Love Gabatonis ~ eat there at least monthly, if not more. Great poor boys and chef salads with sweet Italian dressing. Unique place! You wont be disappointed!

Place is busy on weekend nights, but they are quick to bus tables and seat you. Staff is friendly, food good, orders always correct. Wait staff keeps watching table, quick to refill drinks and bring to-go containers without being asked.

Old hometown pizza and pasta parlor. The thin crust pizza is the best around! A little dark inside and the tables are close because of the size of the dining room, but it's worth the minor things.

My husband and I shared a pizza, which was thin-crusted (our favorite), and a salad. Food was delicious, excellent homey, family-oriented ambience and good service.

Visiting Springfield from out of town, we decided to try a local pizza place and get it to-go to take back to our hotel. The thin crust pizza here was pretty good. Had great flavor and didn't disappoint. The restaurant is a nice cozy place...More
