    This place is very cool. Great food, great service. How can you not like the place that invented the Stromboli?

    Had the original Stromboli after seeing it on The Travel Channel. It was one of the best I have ever eaten! Truly enjoyed it! Well worth the ride, can't wait to try rest of the menu!

    We stopped in on NYE this year and ordered the broccoli and chicken stromboli and the Italian Lemon cake and they were both out of this world!! We try to stop in as often as we're in the area! Our go-to stromboli place!!

    This place was the bomb!!! We had the Stuffed shells and a small Cheesesteak. Both were outstanding. Since they're known for their Stromboli I had to get one to go. I'll have to admit it was one of the best sandwiches I have ever had. The only downside of this place is they open at 10am and I have an earlier flight. Otherwise I would be getting a sandwich for my flight in the morning. Couldn't ask for a better wait staff too
