“Not My Slice”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

Dingy dining area, as if you're in Hitler's bunker. And there are plenty of other places that make really great pizzas.

“Really Nice Pizza!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

We love Pizza and we went to Albano's on Franklin in MC. Parking was a problem, so many people! Finally got in, waited, got in and got our salad and pizza. Salad not much to comment about (Antipasto $5.25), but the pizza is very diff from others. It is thin crust, has a really great sauce, very nice toppings. Sausage could be more Italian. All in all, nice place, really nice pizza for the price and one of the BEST pizza places in Michigan City!!! We did NOT try anything other on the menue so no comments on that!!!

“Dirty dive”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012 via mobile

Went in sat ourselves. Only one waitress working dining room. Waited an hour for pizza. Tasted like frozen pizza from Walmart.

“Skip the pizza chains, Eat here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012

This place has a very humble sort of ambience on the inside, where you can eat in, but the dining room is somewhat small. The pizza here has a thin crust, delicious sauce, and generous cheese and toppings. And the price is right. You will not regret skipping Papa Johns and taking a chance on Albano's.
