No longer called Pontilo's. Now it is Batavia Original Pizzeria. Since it has switched management, there was some decor updating, but the food has suffered. It does not compair with the greatness that was once Pontilo's--that we locals grew up on! You can still get a good meal here--just not the same.

We went to meet a few family friends, and had a good visit, with very good food: wings were solidly WNY STYLE. Pizza was pepperoni, also very good. Antipasto salads, Italian wedding soup were also very good. Service was attentive, friendly, also very good. When I am again in Batavia, this is a place I would return to. From people... More

We travel a distance and really enjoy the food and service. However today we were seated on the patio and told a waitress would be over shortly. A bus of twenty football players pulled in several minutes later. Fifteen min later we got up to leave without ever seeing a waitress even though one had come out several times to... More

Always a must stop when we gone home to visit. Pizza and wings are amazing! The Decor of the building shows its age, but it is a classic. You will not be disappointed.

Had the hardest time finding you on Trip Advisor. What a surprise. Parking lot was full so we gave it a shot and was not disappointed. Good pizza - more than enough, great salad and service was excellent. 5 stars definitely. Good prices, good food and good service.

This restaurant is now called Batavia's Original Pizzeria (formerly Pontillo's). Don't listen to the bad reviews because the food is just as good as it was when the Pontillo family owned it! We ordered white pizza and wings and were not disappointed; the food was fabulous! When we find ourselves in Batavia again we will definitely stop by!

This used to be the best pizza in town. They closed for a couple years and reopened under different management. The pizza isn't the same. The atmosphere is different. Sad for a place that was THE place to go for kids on the weekends for food. Hope they can figure it out.

I recently had the opportunity to revisit Batavia's Original on a couple of occasions since the former owner was released. Now under new management (Kathy & Linda), and along with some other staffing changes, the quality & consistency of the food has greatly improved. Other menu changes have been made. I highly recommend that you visit, especially if you haven't... More

I had a slice of the "HUGH" pizza that a sign out front advertises and 6 wings. The pizza was terrible, undercooked and only slightly warm when brought to the table. The wings were only warm. First and last stop at this restaurant.

While this is not Pontillo's any longer it is the best pizza in the world. This was the highlight of our trip getting Pontillo's. The pizza and wings are AMAZING!!
