Ordered two orders of fried calamari, got one lousy order – First of all, they are the only place in the Valley to get fried calamari, and it wasn't that good. Chewy, tastes frozen, which I can get at the supermarket for less than a dollar per pound. But what annoys me the most, was that I ordered two orders of fried calamari. When I bring it home, they had put both "orders" into a take out box that should hold one order. And, second, it was 2/3 wilted lettuce!!!!! So, I got 1/3 of an order of fried calamari for $20! Other places around New England I've been to have given you heaping orders for $7 or small orders like this one for $5-6. And it's never on wilted lettuce. Pizza's lousy too, thats why I ordered my calamari here, and my pizza at Bongiornos (5 stars from me). Other good pizza is at Perielles Pizza on Rte. 100.
Try other places before returning here – The pizza is supposed to be the best in this small ski area, and it is ok. The varieties such as the Mediterranean pie are good. The crust was a bit too flat and crispy for my liking. But, the ingredients were tasty. The biggest turn off was the service. That ruins the food experience for me. With all the places to eat in any given area, it is unfortunate when service staff are forgetful (didn't bring the glasses of water), leave you there unattended (didn't stop back for us to ask for parmesan cheese and other items), and was basically disinterested in helping us. We just moved to this area and there is certainly enough variety in the area to divert us to other places.
The atmosphere is very 70's-80's which is ok. I wouldn't tell anyone to absolutely NOT go there, but just don't expect great service. Also, their are frozen foods section pizza which would certainly rival what we ate, so I wouldn't rush here for that selection again. Brands like Digiornio have better pizza than many pizzeria's around here. With that being the case, you go to these places hoping to be catered and attended to as if you mattered and they want your business again.
