This is the best Pizza I found in the Mid west. When we travel to the cities this is a must stop. The pizza is delicious. You can purchase other items and dried pastas. Parking can be a challenge but, well worth a short walk. This is high end fast food. The shop reminds me of the same places I... More

I realize Broder's is a pasta bar. I just wish it could also accommodate gluten free pasta even a little tiny bit. They don't, and they won't. They say it's 'too small a kitchen'. That's why we don't ever go there now. I like the atmosphere. I like the entrees. Can't eat any of them anymore. That's sad.

We ordered food for take out on a Saturday night. They were busy (as usual) and they left something off of our order so we had to go back and pick it up. My husband had the lasagna, and it wasn't quite enough food for him. Our hosts said that usually the portions are a lot bigger. He said it... More

I love this place, it's quick, it's easy and delicious. Pizza for the kid and lasagna with a salad and a glass of wine for me. YUM!

You can't go wrong with Broders, everything on the menu is fantastic, very authentic. Small restaurant and they have trouble seating groups of 8 or more. Try this place and you will walk away with a smile.

Broders Cucina Italiana is the take out pasta bar across the street from Broder's Pasta Bar. They have lots of prepared pasta salads ready to go and you can also get sandwiches, pizza, regular salad and other tasty things. Pretty quick service. If you're in the mood for salad, definitely try the Emilia salad! And their crispy flatbread is so... More

Our visit to Broder's was very nice. The food was very authentic Italian and every bite was delicious. From the dinner salad with blood orange to the chocolate flourless dessert, every bite was wonderful. Our service was flawless and the wine our server recommended was exactly in line with the wines I told her I generally enjoy. Highly recommend.

I had a delicious lasagna with a side salad my son had a giant slice of cheese pizza (of course! what else would a 10 year old boy want?!!). Both meals were very good. On the way out, I purchased a canolli which was also very good.

I ventured over here after trying to grab lunch at Broders and they were closed. What I found was a cafeteria style version of the classic Broders, perhaps a bit smaller portions, and an amazing store. I enjoyed the Rigatoni with mild Sausage & Peppers($8.50) and my friend had the Chicken Parmesan($9.50). The chicken portions where quite small, but an... More

Visited based on it being featured on the program dives diners and drive ins. First parking in the area is a challenge. The establishment is not a restaurant but a deli type of business where you order and then sit your self. The pizza I came for was re heated and served warm. It was ok. The meatballs were average...
