You’ve either patronized this pizzeria a million times or you’ve never been and you wear your indisposition to chain eateries like a badge of merit and unwavering fortitude. Either way, I totally get it. Good eats here, though.
Robin’s note: Large glasses of wine.
Who you’ll see eating here: Families with small children, large groups of people, and older couples.
Their specialty: Anything with cheese and some sort of carb base.
What you should order: Go with the pizzas – consistently fresh and delicious.
What you may not know but should: Kids get a pack of crayons and uncooked pizza dough “playdough” which, of course, they’ll spend the rest of the evening trying to eat.
