Tons of cheese, great flavor.

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

Great find. Juicy Italian beef sandwich at very reasonable prices. Had a nice big menu and I am sure we will be back.

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

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
