My family had just gotten into Duluth and were starving. Pizza was everyone's choice and we found Sammy's through Trip Advisor. The place was busy, the pizza was hot but just average. I would say I have had better pizza. We ordered garlic cheese bread, it seemed they forgot because we got out... read more

We were staying in a local hotel and the kids got hungry after swimming, so we ordered pizzas. The delivery was prompt, and the ham and pineapple pizza was good, but the double crust pepperoni didn't appear to have a double crust, and the chicken bacon ranch had very little flavor. Not recommended.

I walk into a room with a checkered wall and a tan wall. Right as I walk in, I can smell the pizza. I sit at the booth and look through the menu. Looking around the restaurant, I see downtown Duluth with the lights outside. The options on the menu include soups and salad, pizza, and pasta. The average price... More

I've long heard of this so-called pizza institution in Duluth and must say that it was extremely disappointing. The staff is friendly, delivery is quick, but the pizza is far from edible. Stale crust, mediocre sauce and disappointing toppings.

I was staying at a nearby Hotel and decided to order delivery for my kids. After I received our food, I picked off an accumulation of hair and dirt between both, the pizza and pepperoni cheese bread. Looks like someone dropped the order on the floor, picked it up, and plopped it back in the box. Naturally, I was disgusted... More

This for many years has been my number one pizza place to go with family. It's great pizza, quite addictive really, and it's all about the crust. Really good stuff. The House Special is my all time fave. If you're on your own or with just a few people, save yourself the expensive ticket and check out Vitta's down the... More

Good amount of cheese, good crust. Ask them to cut into slices instead of squares. Sausage topping was good. I probably would try another option next time in town. Miss east coast pizza, so not sure I'd find anything better in Duluth.

We were looking for pizza in Duluth one night and looking for something different than what we have back home. Sammy's had a lot of positive reviews on this site and others. Unfortunately we were disappointed by both the food and the service. The service was pretty slow as it took the server a while to get to us when... More
