If you care about a fancy atmosphere and modern decor etc then you may want to go elsewhere ... Rubino's Pizza is not a fancy pizza place like you'd see at Easton Mall. However what they do offer is fast friendly service and the BEST thin crust pizza i ever had. I regularly drive 25+ miles from south of Columbus... More

Nothing fancy neighborhood establishment that has been in business over 50 years... cash only... original red leather booths and old video games. Get a small cheese pizza for $5. If thin crust is your desire, this is the BEST pizza in town!!! The secret is in the sauce & the pepperonis have the perfect spice. Light cheese and they wrap... More

Joints tell a lot about the restaurant. Rubino's is a joint, pure and simple. At first glance, you may be worried about the place, but don't be. The food is great and the atmosphere is actually top notch. Super crispy, thin crust pizza is the only thing to have here. From an ancient style of baking and order taking (love... More

Wonderful Pizza. Certainly it is not the new historic thin designer pizza...but this is old standing lovely family sauce on very thin crust. The cheese mix perfect..and it is a family tradition for generations. Surprising how many people airship Rubino's pizza. Best combination is to get Rubino's Pizza carry out..and Wing's Sub Gum Chop Suey for a great meal at... More

Carried out a large mushroom pizza and a meat ravioli (comes with a salad and sliced bread.) You can eat a ton of this pizza because the crust is so thin. Great crunch to it, reminiscent of a saltine cracker. I would have preferred a pizza with all the toppings but we went mushroom for the others that were eating... More

We went to Rubino's on a recommendation and by the reviews we read on line. When we arrived we noticed right away it was old school, a little dingy and dirty. I don't mind paper plates and paper cups, if the food is good, but I was disappointed. I thought the pizza was just okay. The sauce is way too... More

Me and my wife loved this place. It immediately went to the top of our list as one of the best pizza places in central Ohio. The food was delicious and very reasonably priced. We also loved the atmosphere. A throwback to when things were simple and the proprietor cared more about delivering a good product than having fancy silverware.... More

This is the first place we stop every time we fly into Columbus. Upon entering you may have the inclination to turn around and leave as the building is old and may have some dust. I have been coming here since I was a kid and have never been disappointed. The crust is delicious (if you are a thin crust... More

Rubino's has been around in Bexley, OH (suburb of Columbus) since the 1950's. It's a "family" business. The original owner sold the business to two of his employees, who passed it down to their kids. They know all of their customers by name, whether you are a federal judge, a multi-millionaire, or a blue-collar worker, and all are treated with... More

Best pizza in Columbus if you like really thin crust. Best with just one or two toppings as the thin crust is overwhelmed with too many toppings.
