    Uh, no.

    Do not, and I repeat, for those that skip over reviews to "give it a chance", do not waste your time, money, energy or effort on this place. Order from any SaMo Pizza place and enjoy the comfort of your home instead! Arrived with my young daughter, after being told the place was "kid-friendly". Not. Sat us at a table without even asking if the space was alright. A table that not only wobbled, but was, I'm assuming here, the ONLY way for waiters to get to any other tables in the restaurant, behind my chair. Sat down, ordered drinks, and waited. The waiter came back to the table, without the drinks to ask if I were ready to order. I told him, "if we could have our drinks first, and some bread". Of course, of course- he scurried off. No drinks, no bread. Eventually the drinks came, I told him I was ready to order and would still like some bread. Ordered a glass of wine with dinner, a bean salad for myself, a pizza for my daughter and steamed broccoli and would take a steak dinner home for my husband. So all-in-all, spending the amount two adults would pay with drinks. Needless to say, my salad arrived and STILL had to ask for bread a 3rd time. It finally arrived, after my entree. Brought the entire pizza to the little 2-seat table without asking if they could slice a piece for my little daughter to eat or keep the pizza in the kitchen and NEVER brought her broccoli, even after pinging them again. The salad was boring and over-garliced, the pizza was boring and bland. The bread, when it finally arrived, was actually tasty. Long story longer, they packed the reminder of the pizza, I told them to forget the broccoli and to forget the steak. I got the bill, reminding the waiter that when dining with a small child, the "relax" window is very small, so all food for the child should be brought out as soon as possible. He just stared at me. I ask to speak to the manager, and told him too. I paid my bill, leaving a $1 tip and writing a brief survey on the back of the bill. For someone dining with a small child at 5:45pm, with no one really else in the place, to delay, miss and be unapologetic for the lapse was not acceptable. I left the restaurant, leaving the pizza as well. Way too often servers forget what TIP stands for -To Insure Promptness. I still can't believe I paid the bill...... Needless to say.....No Way.

    The Most Authentic Italian Restaurant

    I am a first generation Sicilian/Italian and I can say that this is the very best and most authentic Italian food I have eaten in a local restaurant. The service is excellent and you are made to feel very welcome. The pizza is wonderful, the pasta is very delicious and the wines are outstanding.
