I think its absurd that this pizza place will be "mafia" themed. Since when did the mafia become cool? I think Im going to open an authentic middle eastern restaurant and it will be "al qaeda" themed.

Have you bought a sub at Expressos lately? If your order a turkey sub, you receive two pieces of thin turkey hidden by two tomato slices. I have never seen a more skimpier sub than expressos!

We need a good pizza joint, maybe goombas can offer that! Goomba is slang for either "the man", "my friend" or "idiot". I am not downplaying the name; I actually like the name it is fun and different!

No way Exspresso has the best pizza !!
If you're a sugar junkie. Expresso's was the FHS sugar fix that keeps on giving. They bred a whole generation of addicts. Fitchburg Dentists had a good thing going for a while until everyone lost their teeth.

I thought I was the only person in Fitchburg who can't stand Espresso pizza. Way too sweet and greasy. Cardboard drive-in pizza was better than Espresso. I prefer anything but.

I agree totally! I don't even want to humor a business that considers violence and coruption decorative.
So I assume you never go to, rent, watch movies. Who decorates the mafia more than Hollywood?
Get over yourself!

Lately? Their subs have always been skimpy.

I honestly love Espresso and I do not even work there. I was raised on that pizza. I eat there at least twice a week.

WOW, I never knew so many people stopped liking it. The place is busy at lunch.

You obviously haven't been there in a while - lots of interesting businesses popping up. Interesting new energies. Artists moving into the old theatre spaces as we speak. With the eyesore Antiques Row building gone, Wraps Plus replaced with Goombas, Chaibo under Destare, Mike Gallant long gone, the hope and energy are palpable.
I go through there every day and just because the scenery changes, doesn't mean the residents do. They can tear down all the buildings they want and build brand new multi million dollar ones, its still a city full of lowlife, scumbag welfare sucking deadbeat criminals.You keep hoping, like people have for years, and watch how fitchburg just gets worse.

Premier subs may have good food but I'm not going back until they clean the place, the carpets are filthy. Then stop the help from hanging around the entrance smoking ciggies all day, that with the dark windows doesn't make for an appealing business.
Absoultely agree that Premier has good food....but also that the employees smoking right in front the the door is disgusting. I had to hold my breath and still left there smelling like smoke. I speak in the past tense as I haven't been back since. Hopefully they'll read this and change things up!

I never did like it. From what I have heard from different people over the years, you either love it or hate it. My husband loves it, I canít stand it. When he wants Espresso Pizza, I get a salad (which is also skimpy).

That must be why we're saturated with brew pubs and steak houses like what was requested. Best you learn a little about business yourself.
