Just say the word “pizza” in Cleveland and this 30-plus-year-old institution will doubtless be brought up. There’s a reason this Lakewood favorite stands the test of time, and it has more than a little to do with those thick, buttery crusts and that iconic sauce with just the right hint of sweetness. Subs, pasta and other Italian favorites are all served up here, but the pie is the true superstar. Whether you’re getting some delivered before heading out for the night or enjoying it in the warm, homey restaurant, you’ll have more than a dozen specialty ‘zas to choose from and even more in the way of toppings. That’s what keeps us and everybody else coming back for more.
