The food is very good but the service is spotty. My family & I have enjoyed eating here for over 20 years and will continue to do so. The service has dropped over the years though. Most of the time we call in our order and take it home to eat instead of dining in !!!

The box says, "Since 1957". I remember in the 60s & early 70s, my mom driving all the way from Chesterton so my Michigan City born & bred dad could have "The best pizza ever". It's still great! We didn't dine in, so this review is for the pizza only. The service is excellent. Our pizza was waiting for us,... More

We went based on reviews since we were from out of town. The cheese had excellent flavor...I couldn't tell what the blend was...but it was wonderful and abundant! My husband liked the flavor of the sausage as well. The sauce was perfect, not too heavy or too spicy. The italian beef sandwich was a generous portion with good flavor as... More

I've been going for almost 40 years as a resident and now a visitor. The pizza has not changed at all in that time. Delicious. Get the tacos as an appetizer.

When anyone comes back to MC, they stop at Albano's. It is the pizza we all grew up on! In addition to their delicious pizza, they offer Italian beef, pasta and salads. YUM! A friend recently told me that when she lived in Alaska her mom overnighted her an Albano's pizza!

When ever I go back to my home town of Michigan City I always have to have an Albano's pizza. The whole family loves to go together not only for the good food but the atmosphere is nice also. They also have good songs on the juke box :) You won't be sorry if you take the family here. Nothing... More

We were visiting Washington Marina and decided to order pizza to go. We checked Trip Advisor and Albano's had great ratings so we decided to try them. We were not disappointed!!! The sauce is obviously made from recipe and the crust has a great flavor. The toppings were generous and the cheese! The cheese streeetttcches as you pull the slice... More

Not fancy but tasty and not expensive! Small pizza is plenty for two people (only small and large sizes available)Lasagna is also good and can be split for two people. Salads are not anything special. Location on Franklin street has been there for years (decor is dated) Booths have wood seats and are not very comfortable. Waitresses are usually friendly... More

Real, traditional pizza in a real, traditional pizza restaurant. This has become our family rendezvous spot since the first time we came a few years ago. We're planning another trip next month, and my brother has already decreed that it's Albano's for supper again! You're not going to find exotic toppings, sauces or crusts, but you're going to get some... More
