I knew the cheesy bread would be cold/not as great as when hot/dining in, but for some reason my porta salad wasn?t great... less of the normal toppings maybe? Still a huge fan - just likely won?t order for delivery.

Meh. The marinara is nowhere as good as it used to be. The sourdough bread, though, was excellent.
