We ate here on a Sunday afternoon, and it was great. The owner came over to our table not once, but twice and was very friendly. I loved all the old albums on the wall. Brought back many memories. The most important thing was that our pizza was awesome.

The service was friendly. My wife's family (4 sisters, her mom, niece) and us. We ordered the 28 inch pizza. They'll allow each quarter of the pizza to be different. Simply put, one of the best pizzas I've ever had. The ingredients were very fresh, the seasoning was fantastic, and we still had some leftover for lunch. Perfect for a... More

I have been to Lonnie Tant's Italia Pizza Cafe both at their Southaven and Olive Branch location although I always seem to go to the Southaven one. They always have great customer service. I don't think my drink cup was ever empty for long. Lonnie always makes it a point to stop by and ask if everything is ok. I... More

Lonnie's place is truly a history of music. He has old album covers and 45 rpm records plastered on every inch of the walls which was very interesting to an old musician like me. The food was prepared from the freshest of ingredients and unique as far as choices and combinations. Lonnie is very personable and made my wife and... More

Best pizza crust in town! Order the white cheese pizza and add chicken. So good I have to eat it at least once a month. Garlic knots are also a treat. With their delicious marinara sauce. However there is nothing on the menu I would not recommend. This food is so yummmmmy!

As a long time resident of Southaven, I have eaten at many of the restaurants here and in surrounding areas. This place has the best Italian food food hands down. The restaurant has a real authentic Italian dinner feel and the owner (Lonnie) is often there and will talk to you. He even gave my son a giant cookie free... More

Lonnie has a excellent selection of Italian food and the pizza, which is New York style, is the best I have found outside of NY City!!

I moved to Southaven about a year ago. As soon as I moved I began my search for an aawesome local pizza place, after several months of trying various local Pizza places around Southaven I finally struck gold when I walked into Lonnie Tant's. Not only do they have the best pizza they also have amazing pasta dishes and appetizers.... More

We have eaten at the Southaven location many times and always had good food and service. The service at the Olive Branch location in the evening I'm sad to say is not good, even with just a few guests in the restaurant at the time. The food was good, but with the poor service I don't think I'll be back... More

In the past, we have visited the Southaven location. We were excited to learn that a new location was opening in Olive Branch which we visited on Friday, 07/10/2009. Sorry to say, we were very disappointed. We ordered a 16" pizza with pepperoni and sausage... there was very little meat on the pizza. We ended up paying approximately $28.00 for... More
