Their pizza and calzones is AMAZING!! I love all the topping options and that I could select sundries tomatoes in my calzone was so delicious that I ate the whole thing! My husband loved his pizza! The waitress was very kind to us even with a fussy baby!

We went for pizza and a salad on a Friday night. We haven't been here for awhile and noticed the place had been remodeled again and the menu had been redone. Fortunately Tony was still banging out the same terrific pizzas. They have a great house salad and at $4.00 it's a bargain. For pizza, we ordered half pepperoni and... More

Large, 5 topping red sauce pizza is the best pizza I've eaten since moving to cincinnati 17 years ago. I can't beleve it took me so long to discover this family owned gem. I really like the separate bar area. Never fun to have kids running around when you are having adult beverage/conversation. It also keeps the dining room quiet... More

My daughters and I were stuck at a dance competition all day and they were starving. I look up pizza places and the reviews were good. We got these pizza dumplings that were fabulous. We also ordered a pizza and it wass good. I am more used to deep dish, but I can't complain. The staff were super nice to... More

I have been to Aponte's many times over the last three years. Tony and his staff at Aponte's does a great job! The food is excellent. The service is timely and fast. I love the pizza dumplings, lasagna, and pizza. The pizza is thin and chewy. Tony's lasagna is the best. The portion sizes are huge. The bar is stocked... More

If you want excellent NY/NJ style pizza, this is the place to go. Piecrust was crispy and the sauce and toppings were delicious. Tony always stops bye to chat. We really enjoyed the meal.

Our family has known and ate at Aponte's since they opened in Mason. Their new location is very convenient and has street parking and a lot behind the building. Plenty of room in and outside when weather permits. Our favorite is the calzones. In particular the crust is thin and cooked perfectly. We have also ordered their lasagna as carry-out... More

East Coast Pizza is very hard to find in Cincinnati. The pizza is either cut into squares, is on a crust that resembles saltines, or on crust that is too thick. Aponte's pizza has a thin, chewy crust with well balanced sauce and great cheese. The owner, Tony, is a great guy who cares about great food and great service.

This was our second visit to this establishment and the pizza was delicious as before. Friendly, attentive service. Not too busy on a Saturday at 6:00pm. Loved the Tony Palmer-- a blend of iced tea and limoncello--great for a summer evening.
