Not good meat ball pizza has very little on it and just small pieces of chop meat not worth it tasteless.

Have been there a few times, the food is excellent, really delicious! The stuffed peppers are fantastic, the salads are fresh and dressings bursting with flavor, the meatball Stromboli and garlic knots (new!) are to die for, and my daughters love the chicken wings and salads!!! Thanks for the great food!
