When you want pizza, you want Sammy's

If you find yourself in Duluth and want some pizza go no place other than Sammy's. We have been eating Sammy's for close to 40 years and will not change. Try their other Italian food also it is great. A cold Sammy's pizza is better than a hot one from the other places.

Sammy's makes the best thin crust pizza you can find. I highly recommend the Sam Special or the Kosher Salami. You can also go to Aces on First just down the street and order a Sammy's pizza. They'll deliver it piping hot to the bar.

I highly recommend eating here if you like pizza. The crust was great, the flavor of the sauce and toppings was even better. I am very happy we tried this place out!!

Sammy's is a bit above the chains but nothing special. The cheese bread is very bready and the pizza crust a bit too doughy. Sauce could use a little more kick. OK basic type of pizza nothing I'd go out of my way for know Luce is just a few blocks away. Service was efficient and friendly.

YUMM! I think this is the BEST pizza I have ever tasted. Their crust is great and toppings tasted fresh and plentiful! We started out with Garlic Cheese Bread and that was good but they have spaghetti sauce for dipping which is rather bland and tangy. I would opt for something a bit more flavorful. Our service was great from... More

PIzza was delicious. There was a special for free cheese bread the day we ordered. That was ok, but the sauce was very runny and not that good.

While visiting Duluth, I was told I had to go to Sammy's Pizza while I was there. There was one just around the corner from my motel, so, since I was without a car I decided it was meant to be. I had read some reviews that this particular location was a bit of a dive, which convinced me to... More

Ordered a cheese pizza and taco pizza for delivery. I'm not much a cheese pizza fan (ordered for the kids), but this was the best cheese pizza I've had. The taco pizza was exceptional. Delivery was exactly how long he said it would take and the was a very friendly delivery guy. Highly recommended for pizza in Duluth.
