Homemade sauce with our secret mix of seasonings. Dough that's made fresh every morning. Specialty meats and real mozzarella cheese. The sounds of crisp crust being cut into perfectly sized squares. That's what you'll find in the kitchen at Sammy's Pizza & Restaurant in Downtown Duluth.

Piping hot and absolutely delicious

For years we've been coming to Duluth and we always make a stop at Sammy's. Our large fully loaded pizza was so good it was difficult to stop eating even though we were full. It's too bad it wasn't in a better location.

This place has a reputation for serving the "best pizza in Duluth," so during our stay at a local waterpark, we headed here for dinner. The kiddos wanted to get room service from Tiki Tom's pizza at the hotel, but I made everyone get in the car and go to Sammy's instead. Big mistake. We would have been better off... More

After reading other reviews I decided we should try Sammy's Pizza when we visited Duluth. We had been to Duluth many times, but had never eaten there. It was some of the best thin crust pizza I've had. It was very quiet on a Sunday night. The waitress was very nice and service was great. It's not fancy, but it's... More

We've been eating Sammy's Pizza since high school and we graduated over 50 years ago! It still tastes the same! Back in high school, we would pool our money and get a large pizza for $1.25. So nice that it hasn't changed in all those years. Fun to go back and re-visit our teenage years and have our favorite pizza.

I grew up on this pizza. I have tried them all. Thick, thin, eclectic, double stuffed, etc but nothing beats a good ole pepperoni and cheese pizza at Sammy's

Delivery driver incapable of following clear and simple instructions (turned right when told to go left, etc.) Both Pizza were cut in center but no cuts extended through crust. Excellent flavor.

They were very busy the day we were there. We had the lunch buffet every things was really good.I have had better pizza but the salad soup and dessert pizza were very good. The only complaint I had was they didn't bring out the dessert pizza until buffet was going for 45 minutes.

Went here based on trip advisor reviews and it was a great choice. We ordered a small House Special with extra thick crust and that was enough for my husband and I. Not overly greasy with homemade ingredients. Not many options for sides and no pasta offered. Waitress wasn't overly attentive but order arrived quickly. We'd go back!

I heard a lot about Sammy's, but the pizza was very greasy and overpriced. If you want local fare try pizza at Clyde's...much better. Or, go to Gordy's or grandma's and have the fish sandwich! Not impressed by Sammy's.....sorry.

We ate here twice because it's the best pizza ever. You have to try it when you are in Duluth. Easy to get to and you will love it.
