I am Italian and I grew up eating my Grandmother's homemade pizza from her Pizza store. She made her own dough, sauce, ground and seasoned her own sausage and everything was made to perfection. Pizza is a personal liking. Everyone has different tastes. I like a pizza with a crisp crust, a few airy bubbles in the crust are just great. The cheese has to be good and the sauce for me should have a slight sweetness instead of bland or bitter. Who would have thought that a place called Pizza King would meet those requirements. I read the reviews of a lot of the places in South Bend area that said they were the best pizzas but for me, they were not. I live in Valparaiso but travel one hour to South Bend once a week. I look forward to ordering one of these delicious pizzas. Their sausage has a good flavor and I like the texture. My son and husband also enjoy this pizza. So far, this is the best I have tried in a long time. If it was up to me, I would probably make the sauce just a tiny bit sweeter. That is just my personal taste though. I give this pizza five stars.
I am SO glad I discovered Polito's. I've lived around here for a while, but sadly had never ventured out beyond Pizza Hut and Papa John's. Then, one night when we wanted something a little different we decided to see what Polito's has to over. What we discovered is pizza that is far superior in quality and taste to anything else we've had around here. The price definitely reflect the higher quality, but they often have specials and you can find coupons that bring the price down. But really, the cost is worth it. You just can't get pizza like this anywhere else around here. By far our favorites are the garlic special with sausage and bread sticks with vodka sauce. Don't miss out on the vodka sauce! The first time I had it I practically squealed with delight.
I love going to Polito's to eat, their food and wait staff is second to none. They have excellent pizza and are reasonably priced. They have a thin and a thick crust pizza that will surely please your taste buds. If you are not in the mood for pizza, their other pasta dishes are also delicious. Dress is casual and there is an arcade to keep the kids busy. I would suggest calling ahead for the thick crust pizza as it takes 20 additional minutes to cook especially if you have kids.
