“This is THE place to eat in Kirksville”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

I grew up in Kirksville and have since moved away, but this is the one place I ust go every time I am back. It is a little pizza place in an old bank building on the corner of the square in Kirksville. They are famous for their "Ronza" which is a calzone. Even though some idiot sued them over the name and they had to change it to "Palonza", it will always be a Ronza to me and everyone else who have eaten them for the past 30+ years. Just down the street from Truman State University, this has always been a student hangout, and the place is decorated with Truman State (formerly Northeast Missouri State) sports photos, etc. Nothing fancy, but if you want pizza, this is the place. Of course, I can't imagine going there and not having the Ronza. They are so popular, they sell them uncooked and frozen, so you can take them home and make them. They will even pack them in ice for your trip. A great place!

“Yum!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

Great pizza made right in front of you. Many unique pizza options. Toasted Ravioli is a great starter. Ronza's are also worth trying. Friendly service. Small, cozy atmosphere. Serves beer and coke products.

“Eat here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

You should eat here if you're in Kirksville. It's not fancy but it's a very tasty homemade pizza that blows the doors off the chain pizza places. We've eaten here twice on two separate trips to Kirksville and had a good pizza both times. Very CLEAN place, and well maintained, although the bathroom (yes, just one) left a lot to be desired. Super friendly staff. We are looking forward to our next trip to Pagliai's.
