Originally, I'm from Chicago, where REAL pizza was invented! Well this is sliced right, (squares) the sauce is great and the cheese is real! Don't be fooled by the outside. Fantastic za! Great service! Priced Right! What more could you require!

Old fashioned atmosphere, very classic joint, the way we like it! Dimly lit, cozy ambience! The food was so authentic Italian, and the staff was fantastic. Huge selection, all food tasted from scratch. Please do not miss this gemstone on Franklin St!

Never have used drive-thru service - always chose delivery or the experience of dining in their now-quaint atmosphere, what once seemed normal for an Italian Pizzeria. Best Pizza In The USA! Nice ice-cold beer, too.

I have lived in this area my whole life and they have never been beaten for the best pizza in this area. Their tacos are also the best I have ever eaten. The prices are not very reasonable considering it is NW Indiana, and the...More

I grew up eating Albanos pizza and it always tastes great. Their sauce is one of a kind (and delicious). My favorite is the veggie pizza with no mushrooms, but all their pizza is great.
