I have been going to Santillo's since I was a little girl. Santillo's pizza is like no other the best I ever had. I have family members that live in Florida and every time they come up the first thing we do us order from Santillo's. Best brick oven Pizza!!!!

Visited here again and the pizza did not disappoint. Like the brick oven taste and many choices and styles of pizza as well as sandwiches, fresh bread, and other choices. Blink and you'll miss this place. Entrance is located on the side of the building down a driveway. Take out only. One of the better choices for pizza in the... More

If there's a restaurant or dining area it wasn't evident. What was is the GIANT brick oven. I went into the takeout area right away and its a fairly small space; even the alleyway you pull through is quite narrow. I came around 10pm on a Saturday night, so they were close to being closed and I didn't call ahead.... More

if you haven't had Santillo's pizza then you need to try it. Santillo's is not a restaurant, they are take out only. the brick oven is huge, the size of a small room. It was built in the early 1900's by German craftsman. They also bake bread. They have the most amazing thin crust, Sicilian, and other traditional style pizza.... More

The Pizza here has got to be one of the best I've ever tasted in my life, and apparently its because the sauce was past down for generations, kudos for them!! Although Al had a nasty attitude, he probably wasn't having a good day but just for the record Al, don't take it out on your customers lol. Also, this... More

Al Santillos knows pizza and it does not get any better than this. Have been to hundreds of little and bigger pizza places in Brooklyn, Manhattan, SI and many others across NJ and to a lesser extent Queens and the Bronx. See I am a borough's boy and a product of the tri-state area and I can say that hands... More

Bad experience. Ordered a large round pie with eggplant on half, sausage on half and mushrooms. The price for the plane pie is $14. High for a pizza, but I heard good things about this place. When the pie was ready, I was charged $26. I asked how much the toppings were since the price of toppings is conveniently not... More

This old time establishment dies it right with all top quality ingredients and Santillo gives great service and personal attention making your pie. This is truly a Jersey pizza spot
