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

If your looking for old school homemade sauce,Dough, sausage. pepperoni is a lil spicy but amazing! Add some pickles and extra cheese and you'll be craving more!

I have wanted to try Rubino's for awhile because I had always heard great things. First of all the place is just gross. It needs a major overhaul and the women's restroom is DISGUSTING. Don't go in there! The place looks like a major health code violation. With that said, pizza is pizza and the meal was fine but I... More

The only reason people could possibly like this garbage is because they feel the peer pressure from other Bexley folks that have apparently never had a semi-respectable pizza. The crust is paper thin, the cheese in nonexistent, the sauce tastes terrible, and the inside of the shop is filthy. I had the pleasure of watching a cook sneeze twice and... More

I understand that this outlet of Rubino's has operated in Bexley since the early 50's and is a local standby. I was also told that it only takes cash or cheque. It is very unchanged but clean and efficient. all the pizza is thin crust and very good. there are a number of topping choices but not so many as... More

Delicious thin crust pizza and quintessential BEXLEY. If you live or are from Bexley, you know what I mean. You will love it. Go there.

We spent two nights in Columbus, OH visiting COSI science museum on our way home from a trip to Niagara Falls. Our family of 6 (2 adults, 4 kids) chose this pizza joint based on reviews and it's close proximity to our hotel. We are not typically fans of thin crust pizza but loved this so much, we are here...
