They have pretty good pizza here the crust is hard some times, but other then that the prices are high here. Also the owner is a real creeper always hits on my girlfriend when I go there.

Well worth the money. Some of the best Pizza in the area. Do not need extra cheese. Salads are just OK.

Up until Penso's, I was going with more familiar names like Pizza Hut, Domino's and East of Chicago (which are still good), but Penso's sort of stole the show for me. I like the high quality toppings and the pizza dough has an immensely nice flavor. But, it has also has an addictive element to it, hence the title. It's... More

Pizza is a staple in my life and I travel around the US. Penso's has great tasting crust and uses fresh cheese. The sauce is tasty unlike several of the chains around. When you order Closed like a lot of places on Monday in New Phily. Never had any of the food in the restaurant, although they explained how they... More

When we arrived it took almost 10 minutes before they came out to wait on our table (one other family in store) We ordered a chef salad and when it came out it had cheese and pepperoni only and our pizza was not very good. Real bad service.

The food was ok, but we waited an incredibly long time for it. Not a good situation if you have young children. The wait may have been more tolerable if the temperature of the dining room wasn't at least 86 degrees. The waitress swore it was because of the pizza ovens. Ironically, when we went back to the kitchen to... More

The owner, Zach Penso, does a great job! The crust, and the pizza sauce are home-made. It is a great family-owned business.

We have lived in Ohio our entire lives, from northwest, to central, to Cincinnati, and always found good food. I have worked in pizza shops, have tasted pizza in many cities and from many pizza shops. We have traveled to many states and regions. I do not know what is wrong with this pizza. It seems like if you start... More
