My favorite pizza in town

Aponte's is located in the sweet down-town (as in old-town) area of Mason. They have garlic knots, disco fries, and good, east-coast style pizza. (Full disclosure: I'm a transplant who grew up on the east coast and, while I enjoy all forms of pizza - midwest, Chicago, fancy-pants hoity-toity... read more

The pizza was very good and generously topped. Our server was pleasant and efficient. On the night we visited, they were having some sort of problem in the kitchen, which caused the food to come out slow. They were apologetic and compensated us for the delay. Their menu is more than pizza. They have a lot of Italian specialties on... More

Although this restaurant is small, its taste and flavors are huge. I originally ordered from this family owned business with the intent of providing variety to our family's "out to eat" needs. After browsing the menu online we made our decisions and placed an order for pick up on the way home for work. Not only were myself and fiance... More

My wife & I stopped by for an early dinner on a Friday afternoon and wondered some pasta dishes. They were OK ... not outstanding. We probably should have ordered their pizza as it seems to be their specialty. I would give them another try next time we're in the area. The service was very good.

Had the opportunity to sample Aponte's pizzeria using a groupon. It is a little mom and pop place but the flavors are huge. The "Tony" is their deluxe pizza and was delicious. The crust was outstanding and the toppings plentiful. A real find. Will be back.

This is very good, authentic, east coast Italian cooking. Tony makes all the ingredients himself. Everything is really good (and you have to love garlic to eat here!). Most of my family likes the pizzas, but I prefer the homemade pasta dishes, particularly the lasagna or the specialty sub sandwiches (you gotta try his antipasta sub)

Their pizza and calzones is AMAZING!! I love all the topping options and that I could select sundries tomatoes in my calzone was so delicious that I ate the whole thing! My husband loved his pizza! The waitress was very kind to us even with a fussy baby!

We went for pizza and a salad on a Friday night. We haven't been here for awhile and noticed the place had been remodeled again and the menu had been redone. Fortunately Tony was still banging out the same terrific pizzas. They have a great house salad and at $4.00 it's a bargain. For pizza, we ordered half pepperoni and... More
