This place has been a standing tradition on Metairie Road for over 30 years and has been serving GREAT pizza ever since! They offer different types of crust and numerous toppings to choose from. It is still the best pizza in the area!!!!!!

This place reminds me of the pizza places I was used to in the Northeast. The pizza isn't really in that style, but I like the atmosphere for this reason. The pizza is good, nothing out of this world, but it's good. I don't recommend the salads...they're like store bought bags of lettuce that are far too expensive for what... More

This place is a good old fashioned pizza joint. Small and hole in the wall, nothing fancy and gets crowded quickly. Go at odd time or send someone to get a table for a large group.

My wife and I love Mark Twain's Pizza. The food and service is consistently good. They still serve anchovies on there pizza. That is my wife favorite ingredient. The Antipasto salad is awesome.

Always an enjoyable place to go and enjoy a pizza in a very relaxed environment on Metairie Road. Jacques, the owner, seems to always be there and floats constantly through both of the eating areas and has an uncanny ability to remember things about his regular patrons. Service and quality of the pizza is always good. If you are a... More

Great pizza and service. Half price pitchers of beer on Thursday night. Had the deluxe pizza and it was loaded with fresh ingredients. A great place for friends and family dinner.
