Mio’s Pizza | Blue Ash, OH

Mio's Stuffed Pizza

Mio’s Pizza is likely your best – and possibly only – option for stuffed Chicago-style pizza around Cincinnati with Chi-natti’s being closed.  Despite the lack of competition, Mio’s stuffed pizza offering is pretty good, and their original crust pizzas aren’t too shabby either.  I tried extra cheese on their original crust, and I enjoyed the generous amount […]

M Wood Fired Oven | Cincinnati, OH

M Wood Fired Oven_Pepperoni Pizza

M Wood Fired Oven is in a small strip of restaurants and shops in the Hyde Park/Mount Lookout area of Cincinnati, and, thankfully, there is more detail and creativity in their pizzas than in their simplistic name.  I was not previously familiar with M, and it was not very fun trying to find a parking spot in the […]

Padrino | Milford, OH

Padrino in Milford, OH_Bruschetta Pizza

Padrino, located in downtown Milford, is just three doors down from 20 Brix – a restaurant by the same owners.  I am told that 20 Brix is a very nice restaurant as well, but, naturally, I wanted to try Padrino since it has been recognized as having one of the area’s best pizzas by Cincinnati Magazine.  Before […]

Lucy Blue Pizza | Cincinnati, OH

Lucy Blue Pizza in Cincinnati, OH_Pepperoni Pizza

Lucy Blue Pizza is in the Over the Rhine neighborhood of downtown Cincinnati, and it was recently voted the “Best Greek Pizza” by City Beat Magazine.  I was unaware of it winning this award and actually only picked it because it had a few televisions in an area with mostly upscale or bars catering to live music and no sports bars that I could […]

Marion’s Piazza | Mason, OH

Marion's Piazza in Mason, OH_Sausage and Pepperoni Pizza

Marion’s Piazza first opened in Dayton, Ohio over forty-five years ago, and they have since expanded to a total of nine locations.  I ate at its newest location in Mason, a northeastern suburb of Cincinnati.  Marion’s first restaurant in Dayton served as somewhat of a trailblazer by offering seating for over two hundred people in its […]

Matt the Miller’s Tavern Review | Carmel, IN

Matt the Miller's Tavern_Classic Margherita Flatbread

Matt the Miller’s Tavern is located in a new building in the City Center area of Carmel, Indiana at the corner of Rangeline Road and 126th Street, and they also have locations in Grandview and Dublin, Ohio.  Their restaurants have a little bit of something for everyone making them hard to classify, but I would consider them to be an upscale […]

Antonio’s Review | Parma, OH

Antonio's Restaurant_Sausage and Pepperoni Pizza

Antonio’s Pizza in Parma, Ohio was one of the first pizzerias in the Cleveland area, and it continues to be family-owned and operated with a total of nine locations.  For the first time in the history of this website, I started my meal off with a salad (that’s right, a salad…it was not a typo).  I […]

Luigi’s Restaurant Review | Akron, OH

Luigi's Restaurant_Pizza with Pepperoni, Sausage, Extra Cheese, and Extra Sauce

If the old school atmosphere of Luigi’s Restaurant in Akron, Ohio doesn’t win you over, then their pizza definitely will.  I watched the “Chicago Band Box” perform over their entrance like it has for the past fifty years while I started my meal with their garlic bread with mozzarella.  This appetizer was good, but the […]

Hound Dog’s Pizza Review | Columbus, OH

Hound Dog's Pizza - Pepperoni and Sausage

Hound Dog’s 3 Degree Pizza is on the edge of Ohio State University’s campus in Columbus, Ohio. I found the front entrance on High Street is easy to miss, but there is parking in the rear on Dodridge Street (that is where the picture of the outside below was taken). It is a very large […]

Adriatico’s Review | Columbus, OH

Adriatico's Pepperoni Pizza

Adriatico’s New York Style Pizza offers delicious pies on the campus of Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio. The pizza I tried was Sicilian-style (fairly thick) and thin crust is also offered at Adriatico’s. I greatly enjoyed my pepperoni pizza with the sauce and buttery crust being particularly good. The large we ordered was enough […]
