Our family loved the giant pizzas we ordered and enjoyed at our rental house. The bbq chicken pizza, sausage & pepperoni, and cheese pizzas were delicious!!!!

Sigh, spent forever today trying to figure out where to get pizza so thought I wld try a place I have never been, what a mistake that was. $45 for 2 pizzas I don't mind if its quality, it was not, it was horrible. Got...a Sicilian and a regular pizza. Sad to say there is not one good thing I can say about either. Dont waste your money, go anywhere else. Get a frozen pizza u will be better off. BAD BAD BAD glad its trash nightMore

The thin crust, meal lovers pizza was excellent, even though it was pre-made and heated up again. Also enjoyed an italian salad. But. There was only one person working. He was taking phone orders, counter orders, making pizzas, making salads, ,serving drinks, taking money. How...cheap can the owner of this restaurants get to hire one person at dinner time?More

We call 4 times over a 1/2 hour trying to put in an order. No one ever answered the phone and there was no opportunity to leave a message. Since there is no way to enter an order online, there was no way to order...a pizza except to physical go there, order it, and wait for it.More

Hands down, this is the best pizza in Sarasota. The crust is thin and flavorful and the toppings always taste fresh!

Something has changed here. In the past have been many times and it had been good. Yesterday ordered everything pizza by phone and got there early and to my surprise it was ready. Got it home and knew why it was ready early, it was...a re-heated pizza. Probably one they had in the case for sale by the piece. Dough was not fresh and very chewy. The pizza toppings were not fresh. And it was lukewarm. Not good at all. Very disappointing! I should have taken it back.More

Ricotta cheese is the secret ingredient. OK, maybe it's not a secret, since it lists it on their menu, but it is what makes the Calzones taste amazing. If I lived near here I would weigh 300 pounds (or more).

Had an absolutely fabulous lunch at Il Panificio. Started by sharing a slice of their Sicilian Pizza with my wife. Crunchy, delicious crust; fresh, plentiful cheese; and incredible sauce. Then had a Chicken Parm sub. Oh my! The roll was perfect with just the right...crust, chicken was delicious, fresh parm, and again... oh that sauce! Prices were reasonable. We'll try all their locations.More

Large pie reasonably priced. We had the cheese pizza and it was good. Thin crust with cornmeal on the bottom. Not a lot of sauce or cheese, but kinda like the pizza we got in Italy. I would go back.

We have always been a fan of Panificios thin crust pizza and were disappointed when they closed the Gateway Ave. location. We recently ordered carry out at the new Reynolds Rd, location, around the corner from Mello Mushroom. When we arrived the pizza was just...coming out of the oven piping hot. We ordered 3 large pizzas and they were prepared exactly as we ordered and as crispy and tasty as we remembered!More
