Always friendly service, and the Pizza if very similar to most of the NY pizza places in the big city. Owner is almost always around, and the place is well cared for. Just wish they delivered.

We travel 30 miles on the minimum of once a month to eat at Morningstar Pizza. The dough is hand made and stretched into goodness in store, all of the ingredients are fresh, meats are tasty and slices are big and foldable in true NYC fashion. Roger and his wife and staff also take the time to get to know... More

Considering the price and quality of the pizza is a great place where to eat! I would say that is the 2nd best place where to eat pizza in Lawrence after the Limestone.

My family stopped here last night for dinner. I have never had authentic NY pizza so I can not comment about that but we are a pizza loving family. We ordered garlic knots and breadsticks. The knots and sauce were incredible. The breadsticks were not what I was expecting but they were not bad. The menu offerings all sounded amazing.... More

If you're actually from NY, this food isn't even close. The cheese on the pizza should be very greasy, the pepperoni should be small with the edges curled and crispy, and the sauce should be VERY different. Doesn't taste anything like it! Bummer. It actually tastes like cardboard.

Only pizza restaurant in town that makes it difficult for customers to order their pizza. They don't deliver until 6pm on the weekends. They don't accept cash - which we weren't informed of until we were done placing our order. And this was after a lengthy ordering process because the person taking our order wasn't familiar with the menu. Restaurant... More

My husband and I first ate at Morningstar about 1 1/2 months ago and really enjoyed our pizza and chopped dinner salads. They were slow to take our order and the server was multi-tasking with takeout customers, but other than that the service was great. So we decided to go again and ordered the exact same pizza and salads as... More

This place came highly recommended by locals while my family visited Lawrence and took in some softball at Arrocha ballpark! Let me tell you the service was OUTSTANDING! Nothing against New Yorkers but I don't ever recall leaving any of the pizzerias there in New York that my wife and I have visited talking about how great the service was.... More

While visiting my son at school I was told about this joint from a pal who lived there. Gotta say the pie was really good as was the antipasto salad. If you think you cant get a good pizza in Kansas think again. Next time going to try a few more items. Whatever this guy is doing he's doing it... More
