Delicious Italian food for the whole family!

This was a little out of the way for us, but I'm so glad we made the effort to find it. Our waitress was very friendly and attentive, our food came quickly, and most importantly--it was delicious! We ordered a pizza, an Italian grinder, the meat ravioli (came with amazing bread), and the... read more

The Good: local Joint, neat and clean, quick efficient service, The Bad: maybe a little worn, one page menu, sweet tomato sauce This is a local favorite in an Indiana beach town. It's a neat older place where they take service seriously. The decor is quirky and darn but the place is clean. The menu is a single page unchanged... More

New found delight, have had pizza from New York to Chicago and even Italy, If you do not like cheese stay away. Great flavor and unique atmosphere, now when my wife wants to go to the outlet mall I grab the keys and beat her to the door since it is just blocks away from Albano's.

When my son was a young boy we came here after his baseball games. He's in his 40's now and this is still the place for wonderful pizza, lasagna, spaghetti and other Italian favorites. I don't think the decor has changed in all these years. Wooden booths and tables. Big soft drinks. We usually need a to-go box because we... More

This place really delivered. Nice atmosphere with friendly staff. Good tasting apps (tacos & cheesy garlic bread). The pizza was excellent and full of flavor.

From teenagers days to senior citizen, the Albano's taste is still a must have. Returning visits by friends and relatives have this pizza at the top of their list. They have outlasted the others for good reason. Any or all of the toppings will be a delicious addition, and that includes Anchovies! Dine in, to what some have referred to... More
