Among all the pizza/Italian restaurants in Decorah, this is the longest established, since 1953. It probably introduced that foreign dish to the local predominantly Norwegian population. We arrived Justus before the dinner hour, luckily, as it filled very quickly. A real treat for my wife...More

My wife had a supreme pizza and I had broasted chicken and both were ok but nothing special. My chicken was dripping with water from cooking which wasn't the most appetizing thing but it was still ok. We did get dessert, the cookie and ice...More

We ordered on the phone and had the pizza delivered to Toppling Goliath. The service and pizza were excellent... they arrived hot and fresh... we had 3 different pizzas and had zero leftovers. If pizza is on your brain, this is your place in Decorah!

Wow - great pizza on a thin crust. Many other options in this local favorite. Would avoid salad and go Italian.

We had pizza delivered twice in the weekend. They were friendly, fast, and the taco pizza supreme was so good we ordered it twice!

There is a large room in the basement that would be great for a wedding party. Mabe's takes reservations for this room.
