Still the best...

...after all these years. Rapid City has come a long ways in pizza over the past few decades. Slim pickings in the '80s and '90s, but Piesano's has been the shining star since its inception. Good chain eateries abound in town, but the best pizza place is this "mom and pop" shop on the west side... read more

One of our favorite places to eat in Rapid. If you really want a treat try the ultimate bread sticks and a bowl of bisque. The antipasto salad is more than enough for two people. The pizza is fantastic, one large pizza will easily feed a four adults.

Met up with a couple girl friends for dinner here. We came right during a busy Friday night dinner rush. We did not have to wait long for a table, but there seemed to be issues with their service. My water was never refilled after it was brought out to me, and while my friend's and my meals each came... More

Had a half off Black Hills voucher and was excited to try Paesano's, as we have heard it was good. I noticed the decor to be quite outdated, definitely needs a renovation. The restaurant did seem clean though. Our server was fine. We ordered the special, gyros with chili. The chili actually came out lukewarm. The gyros were not good.... More

I got delivery from here and was less than impressed. On the up side, the cheese bread was excellent. Pizza was kind of gross--waxy cheese that seemed artificial. I asked for some pita and tzaziki sauce so I could sample the sauce, and they gave me a dry cold piece of bread. Not sure why they couldn't have thrown it... More

This is a little neighborhood spot that a tourist wouldn't normally find. If you're traveling through Rapid City and headed out 44 west take a right onto canyon lake drive and have some good Italian for lunch.

Outstanding pizza. We had the Queen Waggoner, and certainly in the top 5 pizzas my wife and I have ever had (and we love to try non-chain pizza places when traveling). Great service too. This place is not hard to get to. Just mapquest or use your map app on your Smartphone. It's just a couple minutes off I-90, and... More

After a day exploring Badlands, I wanted a good pizza. This place did not disappoint. You can tell the crust is made by hand, and the pizza itself has a ton of flavor and freshness. Garlic bread was good as well. The service was a little slow, despite there only being two tables in the restaurant.

We tried to go there on a Monday evening in early September. We got there just before 8, and they were in the process of closing. In their words, "we haven't had anybody show upon the last two hours, so we decided to close." So, we can't comment on the food or the service, but I don't take closing early... More
