Graziano’s Pizza in Dunbar, West Virginia might not wow you with its location – a small strip mall next to a gas station. And, you might not be overwhelmed with its atmosphere – an ordering and dining setup like that of a fast food chain. However, I think you will appreciate their friendly staff and large menu.
In an effort to sample some of the non-pizza items on their menu, I tried Graziano’s breadsticks. They were large, so be sure you’re hungry when ordering them as just an appetizer. There wasn’t a lot to them aside from some butter on top, but they were decent. Also, the marinara sauce they come with was pretty good.
For those in a hurry, Graziano’s offers pizza by the slice ready immediately. However, I wanted to taste their freshest pizza, so I ordered my own with sausage and green olives. The crust was somewhat doughy like the breadsticks, but I don’t mind that. Graziano’s says their pizza is New York-style, but I’d say the crust was a little on the thick side for that. I assume they use the same good marinara sauce on the pizza as what came with the breadsticks, but it’s flavor didn’t stand out a lot on the pizza. The toppings were probably my favorite part of the pizza. Although the sausage was not what I expected, and I think it may have been bacon instead. Whatever meat it was, I still enjoyed it.
What I Ate: Sausage and Green Olive
