I know many people don't like the super thin and crispy crusted pizza, but Rubino's is just the best. The crust and the sauce make it. The sauce is so flavorful, tart, tangy and a bit sweet, I always order extra (but you need to eat it quick or it can make it soggy). The thin crispy crust lets the... More

Start with the sign out front. Classic. It has to have been here 50+ years. You walk in and place your order at the counter and then have a seat in a 50's style booth. If you want a supreme pizza, you will have to let them know if you want it with anchovies which is on the supreme. Awesome!... More

The staff is so kind and a reminder they only accept cash or check, which makes having the Huntington Bank next door handy. I like the flavor of the toppings but the thin crust is just not for us.

I was half expecting the fonz to walk into this place, it's a total throwback to the 80's with really outdated furniture, menus and decor. Don't be put off by that though, the food is decent although menu options are limited to pizza and some pasta. Bring CASH! It doesn't accept credit cards.

Pizza is very good but has super thin crust- good flavor to it. Unique in that you get the pizza to go in a bag versus a pizza box. The spaghetti and meatballs were tasty.

For the past forty years whenever my wife and I get to Columbus to visit her mother, our first stop, unless it is Monday, is Rubino's Pizzeria It's certainly the best thin crust Pizza I've ever eaten. The crust is the thickness of a thin cracker, and is never burnt but just crispy. But that is just the beginning. The... More

We ate here on a recent family trip to Columbus as my husband and his family grew up eating this pizza. It did not disappoint! Very unusual pizza, great flavor and best of all...the kids LOVED it!

Walked into Rubinos and you feel like you got into a time capsule , the place looks it time stopped sometime in the late 60's early 70's ( I mean 1960 to 1970 in the last century ) But very fast realized that " If it ain't broken Don't Fix it" kinda place, they still write their orders on a...

Thin, almost crispy. So very tasty. Covered edge to edge to edge with dime-size delicious peperoni. Only one location, and for over 50 years, the same location.
