We stopped over for dinner on our way back from lutsen. Searched tripadvisor to find this pizza joint, we were seriously dissapointed with the food. We wanted a veggie option hence went for the fehttuchini alfredo, fehttuchini pesto and a veggie pizza. The only thing which was served OK was the fehttuchini alfredo. The Fehttuchini pesto had way too much... More

This place was a block away from the motel I was staying at, so I called for carryout. It was hot and ready on time. The staff were all friendly and thankful when I arrived. They gave me extra hot peppers, parmesan cheese, and napkins. The pizza was a delicious cracker-style thin crust. I ordered "The Crew" special: Sausage, pepperoni,... More

When we first arrived, no one else was in the restaurant...waited forever to get someone to wait on us, food came out quickly once the order was in and the food was very good.

A casual place to go with our family for pizza. Nice choices of pizzas and a children's menu. The pizza was very good and I had a glass of house chardonnay. You can imagine how surprised I was when we got our bill that this little glass of wine cost over $8.00 after tax. This is a pizza joint not... More

I always stop in for Pizza when I am in Duluth. Some of the best thin crust pizza I have ever had. Great for families, sports teams. I have done all of that here. Reasonably priced and good service. Definitely the best pizza in Duluth.

Good pizza. Being from new Haven I consider myself a Hardcore pizza snob but I don't doubt this is the best pizza in Duluth. Sauce was good and generous with toppings however I did notice the toppings tend to slide off the pizza crust.

We went to the Lakeside Sammy's pizza and had the "House Special Pizza". The crust was a real Italian one. There were tons of toppings and no shortage of cheese. Loved it!

We have been eating Sammy's Pizza since we were in high school. It was in Superior then and closed a few years ago but is in the process of reopening.This time, it wasn't so good. We ordered half Cheeseburger, half pepperoni and it just wasn't tasty.

We've eaten at Sammy's throughout MN and ND for over 40 years. The food quality is always consistent and delicious. This restaurant looks run down and really needs a facelift.

Homemade sauce with our secret mix of seasonings. Dough that's made fresh every morning. Specialty meats and real mozzarella cheese. The sounds of crisp crust being cut into perfectly sized squares. That's what you'll find in the kitchen at Sammy's Pizza & Restaurant in Downtown Duluth.
