I think people need to get away from the big chain pizza joints.They're too commercial, robotic and inconsistant. When you deal with a mom and pop shop like Carmino's (serving old brooklyn since 1965), you get the full experience. When you walk-in to pick up your order.... your greeted with a respectful "Hello, how are you". Your order is quickly attended and ready to go. The dough is the same cause it's made fresh EVERY DAY, the sauce is made fresh EVERY DAY and they cut their cheese fresh EVERY DAY (100% provolone, no fillers). Alot of the big chains use frozen pre-prepped items, eventhough they claim they don't cause they have the big money commercials to steer you to believe it. Carmino's is the best italian-american pizza you'll ever have. Some may say that the dough is too soft or the cheese isn't stringy enough. That's because it's not supposed to be the cardboard texture or the plastic-like preservitive filled uniform pizza you see on t.v, If your pizza doesn't have some grease on it, it's not real pizza. Hello!! Pepperoni and sausage have fat. Try the real stuff a couple times and you'll see what i mean. My favorite is the pepperoni and mild peppers pizza. Try the garlic butter sauce too. It's homemade too.....literally. I won't get my pizzas anywhere else. After you've been a customer a few times, they remember you as soon as your name pops up when you place your order. They will thank you for calling and already have you think about what to try next on the menu. That's a real family business.
Love Dewey's Pizza! There are a LOT of places to eat in Cleveland Heights and a LOT of them are on Lee Road. Dewey's is always a safe bet. Yes, it's mostly pizza and salad but the variety of toppings on the pizza is 5 times what most other pizza places offer. And, the ingredients are fresh. A manager once told me they do NOT even have a freezer because everything is fresh - nothing frozen. If you want plain cheese pizza you might as well go to a cheap place. If you want a great meal that happens to be served in the form of a pizza - try Dewey's.
Ordered a steak salad and asked for the steak medium well. However, the steak I got back was very pink and not well whatsoever but rather, more so on the rare side. This did not bother me much, but my waitress asked how everything was and saw the pink steak, gasped and said she was going to get me a whole new plate right away. When she returned with the manager, he offered free dessert as well as the new plate. My meal was also excluded from our check. Very good customer service!
This is great pizza and the taste is amazing. The crust on the pizza just the way I like it. Also the sauce was smooth and not biter. Once I ordered the pizza is was done fast and ready for me to take home but I had to try in the car, ahhh so good. I also ordered the French Fries which were fresh cut from the potatoes not for a bag, it definitely taste so much better.For sure I will be coming back soon but this time order more to take home.
It's like eating at your cousin's house. Excellent food off a diverse menu or discuss what you would like with your waiter or Aldo himself. Intimate dining room that takes on a family feel when friendly guests are nearby. Listed wines pair well with entrees. A real experience and where I take the family when we want a special meal.
Ever since we were young my Dad would take us to the Westpark location. Now we are older we go to the Denison location. This is the best pizza you can have in Northeast Ohio, Try it! We have been customers for 20 years and the cheese definitely does please! If you are hesitating on what pizza shop to order from, try Athens!
I HAVE BEEN EATING THIERRY PIZZAS WAY BACK WHEN JOHN FIRST STARTED MAKING PIZZAS THEY ARE THE BEST IN CLEVELAND NOW THAT I LIVE IN PARMESAN I WILL STILL GET MY ONE OR TWO A MONTH SO I DON'T FORGET WHAT REAL PIZZA TASTE LIKE AS LONG AS I LIVE I WILL BE GETTING THE BEST PIZZA IN TOWN ATHENS IS NUMBER 1 IN MY BOOK.
Absolutely loved it! I felt like I was at my mother's for a family gathering, I didn't thing anyone could make meatballs as good as hers. The linguine with shrimp, I had mine with garlic and oil with a touch of marinara sauce, so delicious! Planning to go back soon, this time I will be trying Nina's lasagna.
This was a good place the passed year its been going down hill they cannot even get the orders right even when they repeat it back to you. It is a shot in the dark too get the same consistent tasting pizza, it depends on the day of week. And the service lets just say they loss my business of 20 plus years.
My favorite Restaurant in Cleveland for over 10 years. Start with amazing mozzarella and tomato salad with balsalmic vinegar dressing. Try the gorgonzola filet mignon. Yum! Have an enormous vodka martini dirty with olives with a great bottle of Barolo. The best! Steve from Cleveland Clinic
