There's a sit down service restaurant in the back of the main counter service area. There was a little bit of a wait but when we went in it was half empty. The service is not great. Our waiter was polite but rushed and borderline inattentive. It's a tightly packed space, so leave the strollers outside or fold them up.
You could negotiate a wheelchair in here but I might call ahead to make sure.

The raw clams were good here. They forgot about our ticket and the clams came out after our dinner was half eaten. They were clean, sweet and medium sized but not well shucked.

My mom's pasta was amazing. She ordered linguine pomadoro with shrimp. The tomatoes were freshly chopped and sauteed with garlic and the shrimp, all tossed together with the pasta. It looked great, even though it it served on a Styrofoam plate! Yup, not real anything here, all disposable stuff.
The bread for my daughter's dinner was forgotten, not that she minded. My other child had a chicken cheesesteak and really enjoyed it.

Looked so forward to having pizza here, after not having it for so long. What a major disappointment. We ate in, but the pizza was not very hot. It's almost like it was sitting out for a while and it got a bit stiff. Our server was delightful, but I left dejected.

Take out a giant pizza, 24" large. It looks different because it's seasoned in a circular sauce pattern. It tastes different because the crust is thinner. The box huge and so is the taste!
Philly cheese steaks are another tasty item on the menu.
Have a drink at the bar while you wait for your take out orders.

Ordered 6 super large tomato pies for a family dinner. We had Mushroom and sausage, plain, and white pie with broccolini. The red sauce was so-so, the mozzarella not so good, and the crust too thick and doughy. The white pie however, was really good. Unfortunately no one can beat Papa's or Delorenzo's if you don't mind driving into Trenton. Personally it is worth the drive and I would skip Maruca's next time.
