Storied Italian Restaurant with Several Strengths

Wells Brothers Restaurant may be best known for its pizza, but its soups and Italian dishes are superior. The thin crust pizza had a fine crisp crust but the sauce was much too sweet. It reminded me of French Canadian pizza, more than New York pizza. The meatballs and sauce, on the other hand, were... read more

Just finished a fish dinner here. Tuesday night and a waiting list tells you it's good. Should have tried the Brat pizza...sounded really good! The blue gill fish was good, drinks are well done, bomber sandwich looked awesome.

Good beer/cocktail selection. Horrible neighborhood. Armed off-duty law enforcement officer at the door at night. I usually eat in the afternoon when there is enough daylight available for my departure. I think that most folks will enjoy this pizza.

This is a local institution serving up some of the best pizza we've ever had. Has been around for many decades so worth it trying to find this establishment.

For those of you who are also allergic to gluten, good news is they offer personal sized gluten-free pizza. Bad news is they don't know if there are other allergens (soy, etc) in the crust, since it comes from a supplier (Wells does not have the ingredient list). So be very careful if you are unfortunate and have multiple allergies... More

Most awesome antipasto salad and thin crust pizza on our planet. Staff is always pleasant and friendly. Service is consistently great. Agree.. early evening to avoid crowds, you can always order a half baked pizza for pick up, finish baking at home, never a disappointment!
