WOW!! This little place was suggested by a coworker and I have now found my go to place for Pizza. Ordered for work a cheese, pepperoni, veggie and supreme. I had one piece of all except the pepperoni and all 3 were excellent. I could not believe the amount of high quality cheese on the cheese pizza. Wow. Ordered two large salads and they came with 3 amazing dressings, one caesar,a creamy greek and a greek. Super! 7 of us had some salad with our pizza. Cant wait to try a calzone! Prices are better than most pizza places and the XLG was truly and XLG! There are various crusts to choose from and we got all NY style. Really folks, it took two hand to eat a piece. Why? There was so much topping! No teeny pieces of meat or veggies, here you know what you are eating, there are big chunks of everything. All of them were really loaded. Order came as requested and on time delivery by a very pleasant young man. Only wish it was an "eat in" place, but will go there for pizza often. You are missing out if you dont go to Mimi's for pizza....

Brixx Wood Fired Pizza

Reviewed By elanao736

Love the style pizza that have. Really thin crust. Love the different bases for the pizza like olive oil and such. Its a change from the tomatoe sauce you get most pizzas. The Brixx salad is the absolute best also. My teens love the wings.Dear elanao736,We're happy that you appreciate our substitute options! Working to accommodate dietary restrictions is something we're always willing to do, and we appreciate your kudos to our efforts. Please be sure to visit again! Thanks, Jon Walker GM

The Tuscany Grille

Reviewed By Barnetjb123

Think freezer section Italian pasta, soup and poor wine choices--The Tuscany Grille. All okay, when getting an early bird special with our elderly mother. Unfortunately, the waiter and manager had extreme difficulty processing it because we were 6 minutes late....hmmm. Will think twice on this one.

Sal's Italian Restaurant

Reviewed By Bradley L

First off let me say that the food is delicious. The service is atrocious. We went in with a large group of people. We told them we were coming on several occasions so that they had time to prepare. When we arrived they had one server for 15 people. Needless to say she could barely get the drinks out withing 20 minutes. I had to ask for extra help. This clearly upset them. The little brunette in the purple shirt wore her emotions on her face as she walked away skulking and shaking her head because an order came out wrong. Upon checking out her attitude was as poor as you can get in a service environment. Too bad this is a family owned establishment because there is nothing that can be done with the exception of never using them again for catering or to bring a large group which included my boss. I was totally embarrassed. But the food was delicious. Therefore if you are looking for great food at a reasonable price, this place is great. But do not consider them for anything larger than a single family. It will upset them.

Olive Garden

Reviewed By robert w

Olive Garden is not one of my favorite places. I mean who needs a chain Italian restaurant anyway when there are so many independents that have better fare? But I do have to give them props and up my rating a bit. I went for lunch and ordered the portabella ravioli and it was outstanding, done nicely with a tomato cream sauce that made the dish. It was way better than my previous experiences.

Some of the freshest and most authentic dishes I've had outside of Italy. The sauces taste fresh-made, with an excellent array of spices. Last time I was there I asked for "Seafood marinara fra diavolo over penne" and received a delightful dish, cooked perfectly. Will return again soon.

Reno's Pizza & Italian Restaurant

Reviewed By Bluedogsdaddy

The name Reno's Pizza and italian Restaurant doesn't do this enjoyable place justice! It should be "The Great Reno's Pizza, Salads, Burgers, Sandwiches and italian Restaurant". We found it square in the center of Gibsonville, which is a small town a short distance north of Burlington. The food here is of wide variety; when you walk in the door, the aroma of pizza and Italian sauce clearly lets you know that you are in the right place, and the menu lets you know that you have a wide variety of dishes available to you, at moderate prices. The food is prepared fresh, the salad bar is fresh, the drinks are cold and large, and the service is quick, personable, and cute. There is a shady city park just across the main street parking, so if you want to take your food outside, you have a nice place to dine. We didn't, because it was 95 degrees out there! The town of Gibsonville has made a good effort to keep itself attractive, with shops on both sides of the park; it is well-tended and a pleasant stop on a country drive. Shoppers for antiques and collectibles (like us) will find a very good antique store directly across the city park.

Tried this place for the first time tonight. We were pleasantly surprised. Though the prices are slightly higher, the food was worth it. The bruschetta was wonderful. Very nicely light. Hubby loved the Mahi Mahi special. I enjoyed the Veal Parmigiania, the Veal was tender. The only flaw was the tomorrow was tad bit too acidic. Had to add a very little bit of sugar to balance it out. Salad was good with the balsamic dressing. Whole meal was very lovely. Was too full for dessert so took it home for later. Be sure to ask for Capt Charlie he was fantastic.

Reviewed By Art H

Stopped by for lunch. This is a nice friendly, cozy strip-mall restaurant. They have booths and 4-tops that are in good condition, comfortable and clean. Each table has matching sets of grated parmesan, S&P, and one other item I cannot recall. We had to ask the server for her name (Sky). It's always welcomed when they greet you with their name. She automatically brought us extra napkins for the meal, and checked back with us frequently. This visit my wife had a 10" pepperoni pizza that was delivered on an aluminum pizza pan. We had to ask for a separate plate. Their pizza is tasty, although the sauce doesn't show typical herbs and spices. It's a thin crust, which many people prefer. I went for a Meatball Parmigiana sub; served on an 8" roll, with generous amount of oven-melted cheese. The meatballs were cut into chunks, which made eating the sub more comfortable and enjoyable. Sauce and melted cheese showed green herbs and spices. Delicious sauce and meatballs. Menu (six page) here is full of Italian dishes as you would expect, with a very large variety. Nice selection of wines. Prices are low.Manager was very busy on the phone.
