Order the sacilan pizza, it's thin and really tasty. Pizza is cooked by number. I like number 8, it has the start of burn crust.

I grew up in Elizabeth but now live an hour away in Toms River. Regardless, I still treat myself to Al’s works of art on a weekly basis. While all of Al’s pizzas are legendary( particularly the Sicilian), for me there is nothing greater than...More

We decided to do Pizza and salad for dinner with another couple. They said Santilla's pizza was the best in New Jersey. Maybe it's the best for out-of-towners, who do't know what pizza should taste like. We ordered two medium size pizzas with vegetables. We...More

If you want to say that you had "Brick Oven Authentic Pizza" then you have to go to Santillo's. They have been doing brick oven pizza for over 50 years.

Real brick oven baked heaven. Any topping you want. Made when it's ordered. Only drawback, pick up only, but you can eat at Pastime Tavern around the corner. You will love the pizza and will be sorry if there's no leftovers, so order one large...More

Excellent pizza, order it well done, Sicilian style, sesame seed crust, and enjoy. It might be a tad expensive, but it is worth it. Excellent pizza.

Take your pizza to Al's Pub or Pastime Tavern. Right round the corner.

Interesting and very old spot here. Walk through an alley way into a very small storefront to order. The pizza is all very fresh, quality ingredients are used, and the same traditional way of baking is used. Very North Jersey here. Pizza was good, but...More

I am fortunate to live close to Santillo, the best pizza on the planet. Get one well done with a sesame seed crust. No matter where you live it's worth traveling to.

Since 1918 we've been baking bread and making Pizza in our Brick Oven. Our Famous Pizza is Voted Best Pizza by the Media every year. (for years and years) We've been Voted best Sicilian Pie in America, Best Sicilian Pepperoni Pie in AMerica. Every year we rank either #1 or #2 in NJ by all the top Cuisine Media Companies. I've learned there are two types of people, those that never tried our Pizza and those that have been here countless times. Thanks for patronizing our establishment. Regards, Al "the baker" Santillo
