yummu pizza

We got a pick-up sausage here, and it was really, really good. Pretty mild sauce, but good sauce. This pizza tastes a lot like Monicals, but better. Nice balance on the cheese and sausage.

My husband and I along with another couple from our town love to go to the Peru Pizza House. They have wonderful pizza (we like the thin crust) and really wonderful Italian beef sandwiches. I would highly recommend the Peru Pizza House to anyone that is in the area.

Lunch. Sandwich was good. The pizza at the table next to us looked GREAT! The restaurant is clean and service was alright. Atmosphere is comfortable and relaxed. Our server didn't seem attentive to empty drink glasses. Prices were reasonable.

This is far and away the best pizza parlor in the US (and I have been to a lot); it is absolutely the very best; great wait staff and friendly. We drive 20 miles oneway to eat there. Love it.

This place has great food and there pizza is awesome too. Their gyros are very good too. Parking is on the streets. There is plenty of seating for large groups also but phone ahead.

My mom and I met my daughter and son here for her Birthday. We most always meet here when we come to Peru to see my daughter, and Grandson. Peru Pizza House has by far the very best pizza in the area, and believe me there are a lot of them to compete with. They smother it with lots of... More

We had a salad, fried mozzarella sticks, fried mushrooms, and thin crust sausage pizza. We liked them all! The server was nice, the place was clean and comfortable, the prices were reasonable! We are from out of town, but would stop here again if we come back through.

This family restaurant is known for it's great pizza but the subs, sandwiches, gyros, and pasta dishes are all excellent as well! Nice family owned restaurant with great service! Try it--you won't be disappointed!

Our party of seven chose this restaurant solely because it was nearly filled with customers. It was clean and modern with friendly staff. Order was received timely. The spaghetti was overlooked and the meatballs tasted odd. The baked Parmesan was super. The red sauce tasted out of a can. Pizza was similar to a digorno that you would buy frozen... More
