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.

I liked this pizza, very thin crust, very good sausage. My biggest issue with the pizza, was that I thought it was a little bit too salty. Other than that, great thin crust pizza.

If you visit Rubino's based on reviews/ratings you will be disappointed! This is a local institution! The restaurant is old, dingy. No extras, pop served out of a can, wilted lettuce for salad, no subs at dinner (lunch only), paper plates and styrofoam cups. Limited pasta...spaghetti and ravioli that is not good. The pizza... super thin, spicy sauce, sausage is... More

Rubino's is an old time pizza parlor. It has been on Main Street in Bexley for at least 60 years; because that's how long I've been going to get my pizzas there. I have been back sporadically since college days, but it has changed very little if any over the years. The pizzas have a wafer thin crust cooked crispy... More
