If you're looking for "great" pizza, this is not the place. Service was fine, and the pizza we ordered was alright, but totally unremarkable - tasteless cheese, generic-tasting sauce and an acceptable amount of embellishment. The portion was very generous though, and pricing was fine as well.

Excellent Sicilian style pizza. We are from Chicago and are very discerning about our pizza. The crust is a cross between thick n thin. The bottom layer is cruchy like a thin but has an extra rise above that that makes it Hearty.....with the extra crust comes enough premium mozzarella to balance the crust to cheese ratio. The ingredients were... More

We ate at Nardonne's for the first time this week but will definitely be back. We had not heard of this restaurant but were taken there by friends who eat out a lot and told us this was now one of their favorite restaurants. The pizza was exceptional and made to order. There is a long list of possible ingredients... More

It was the best pizza I have had in a very long time. The crust was perfect and the cheese thick! We will be back for more! Kim, our server, was super... More

We were looking for a good pizza spot and read the reviews for this spot. Good pizza with a thicker crust. We also tries the meatball sliders that were ok as well. Quick service and we ate soon after we ordered!

We came upon this restaurant when wandering around looking for a place to eat. It had the look of an authentic Italian restaurant of yesterday and the food did not disappoint. The pizza was delicious, plentiful, and fresh. We could only eat 1/2 of the small pizza and took the remaining to go. We also shared a large salad which... More
