The very best Sicilian Pizza that I ever had. Call in advance to have your order ready for pickup. The Italian bread is the very best here also.

Santillos isnt for the chain pizza crowd that looks at price over quality. They also are not a typical NY area slice restaurant. Santillo's is for people who can taste the difference and are willing to pay for quality rather than get a great "price" on a large pie. Having said that, what makes santillos different is that they are... More

Although the last visit is not so recent it is one of many throughout the years. The pizza is spectacular as is the regular loaf of bread and the peperoni stuffed bread. Not only do I think so but New Jersey Monthly magazine a few years ago named it top 25 places in NJ for pizza and in NJ this... More
