Best of the best

went back to Rubinos after an absence of 4 years and it was better than ever. the crackleing crust was as crisp as ever and the sauce simply perfect. Rubino's is not only the best in Ohio but one of the best in the country. We would never miss an opporturnity to have some "Beenos' for dinner.

Saw the article about best in ohio. It's not even best in Bexley. Not even close. Crust is prefabbed and tasted frozen. Absolutely terrible pie. Very limited toppings and not fresh. Did I mention it was terrible? That Thrillist article is a falsehood. Avoid.

I got a large pizza and the spaghetti with extra meatballs. Food was ready on time and fresh. AWESOME! This is my new favorite place on my way home -- they're open till 10:30pm most nights. Abi

This is the best pizza in Bexley, if you like cracker crust pizza. This is very old school, cash only and the place is like walking back in time. Water is served in a jug and soda comes in a can, they also have spaghetti, meatballs, and several choices of ravioli. If you do not like sauce on your pizza,... More

By far the best Pizza I have ever had in my life. My family and I used to walk to Rubino's Pizza when I was a child. As a teen we drove over an hour to have it and anytime we come back to Ohio we stop. It has been over 7years so my next trip to Ohio (from Texas)... More

Rubino's is a family owned business that has been around since I was a child. I no longer live in Columbus, but I go to Rubino's EVERY TIME I am in Columbus. The pizza is great but the building could use some major upkeep and remodeling. There thin crust pizza is the absolute best!!!

Not only does the restaurant need some work to make it more sanitary, but the pizza is awful. It's like bad sauce on a cracker. Please, if your visiting, don't try this. When I first moved here, everyone said it was amazing, but it was the worst pizza I've ever had. Columbus really doesn't have any great pizza places, but... More

Had the bad experience of watching a live cockroach cross the floor while dining here - UGH!!! The food was good, but the cleanliness of the restaurant was extremely poor. I do not see how this place could pass inspection. It was upsetting to see the guys who made the pizzas go outside to smoke then return to prepare the... More
