Albano's has been around this town forever - We tried it again after quite some time and it just isn't good. Flavorless pizza. Too many other great pizza places to try here.

While this is my hometown pizza place, it is also a favorite Italian restaurant that our family frequents whenever we are in the Michigan City, Indiana area. Friendly staff. Delicious food. Modest location. Wonderful memories. You won't regret stopping here for a meal with family and friends.

Albano's opened in 1957; yes I'm that old and remember it as our high school hang out. Haven't lived in MC for years but always go back. Dining room is small, better to order in advance and take out. Pizza is cheesy, toppings are generous, love the Italian sausage, not too tomato-y, good crust. Italian beef sandwiches also a favorite.... More

7 of us spent over 1 hour and in the end left with no food. Asked the server to take our order she said she thought she already did. Took order. 30 min later she says it is taking a long time but it was because we ordered 7 small pizzas and 3 were deep dish. 15 min later she... More

The taco pizza was amazing!!!!!!! We went on the recommendation of a local in search of deep dish. After reading reviews we got a small taco pizza as an appetizer and it was great. The deep dish was also very good. Be prepared for how dark it is inside but you won't be dissapointed in the food.

My family has been coming to Albano's since it opened. It is hands-down the best pizza ever. We always bring out of town guests here to blow their minds!

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.
