The Best Classic Pizza

We're a big fan of Punch Pizza, but every now and then you want an old style cheesy pizza. This original Carbone's, on Randolph, is the ONLY Carbone's that does it right.

Authentic and consistent! Always a spot to eat when we vacation there. Hasn't changed in years.......but we love the atmosphere and neighborhood feel!! We would highly recommend a sausage pizza, Coney dog and a root beer!

This Carbone's has been in operation for many, many years and still produces some of the best thin crust pizza you will find in the Twin Cities. This is the original location and the best. This little pizza joint makes delicious thin crust pizza topped with a nicely seasoned sauce and your choice of toppings, all for a very reasonable... More

I stumbled on this place last week while traveling. Really, really good thin crust pizza with the pepperoni hidden under the cheese. We went there twice in our five day stay. Try it, you won't be disappointed.

Have been getting the take-out pie for years -- ask for it 'well-done' with the top 'golden' to make sure the crust is crisp and the cheese is set. Nicely priced and quickly made, I place my order and in 20 min it's in my hands. Have also enjoyed the frozen smalls -- pepperoni or cheese, and they make a... More

I grew up (been coming here for close to 40 years) with Carbone's and it remains my favorite pizza in Minnesota. Carbone's starts with a wonderful thin crust which is appropriately crispy and chewy without tasting like cardboard. Their red sauce is perfectly balanced, not too acidic, not too sweet, and perfectly spiced. They use a good amount of cheese,... More

We go here a few times a month. It's a great little place. They don't get in a hurry, but the food is worth it.
