I'm rating this 2/5 stars because although I enjoyed my food I wouldn't recommend this place. For take out, I can understand why people rate it higher. This place is definitely more oriented towards to-go pizza. The dining room only has booths so if you have more than 5 in your party you will have to split up. We called... More

We loved their pizza. I loved their crust. Since we are out of town, when we first walked in we didn't know whether to order first or if there was a seating area. The seating area was through a closed door.

I've been going to Albano's for 45 years. Best family true Italian pizza in all of La Porte county. Not in mood for some za? Their tacos are out of this world and they by far have THE best Italian beef in northwest Indiana. Do yourself a favor. Albano's is #1!

My husband and I enjoy getting a pizza to go and then enjoying it on the beach. Friendly place - it is always busy. The pizza is quite simply excellent - if you like family versus chain pizza, put this place on your list.

Great pizza to go! The seating area still looks the same. Great place to pick it up and go. I had the Albano's masterpiece and it compares to any pizza I have ever had in my life. The place is a bit of a "hole in the wall" but they have great pizza! Lots and lots of cheese....

Good pizza... Timely manner. The place for friends and family to have a great time and a great meal. Plus it's close to the Outlet center.

Family owned, has been there for years. Pizza is very good and service is good. Not that big with only about 15 tables.

This is our favorite sit down pizza place in Michigan City. They do a good business with sit down and take out. The seating area is small and unless you time it right, it may be difficult o get a table.

Our last trip to the Michigan City outlet mall allowed us to come here for dinner. The atmosphere here seems to hearken back to the 70's. Small tables and wooden booth like seats make for an uncomfortable seating situation. We did like the knee level window ledge. But the building has some issues so you are looking at some of... More
