After a day of hiking we were ready to crash with take-out. Antonio's is pizza , done well, flavorful, and at a reasonable price. The house salad was also wonderful. We will be back.

Tasty...just call and order ahead! Worth the crazy parking scene and wait! Just be careful when backing out onto Highway 34...it's a little pesky but best pizza in Estes for sure!

Not sure why I'm even writing a review, because this place is already clearly an Estes Park favorite. The rectangular pizza is huge...you can serve 8 people with that one size, or have lots of leftovers if only two of you are eating! We ordered...More

Really delicious new york style pizza. We bought the gigantic 26 inch pizza with pepperoni, Italian sausage and mushrooms and there wasn't a crumb left over because it was so delicious (mouth watering). We were very impressed with how good the pizza was. We also...More

2 words...garlic knots. You must try them. The 4 of us quickly ate a dozen. The pizza was delicious too. We ordered a Sicilian. The crust was crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. The service was exceptional which is rare these days.

This was a great find tucked away from downtown sitting just off the water. We had a wood-fired and a New York style both were excellent! The staff was friendly and the pizzas were quick to our table. Highly recommended!

It all started in the early 1890's with the birth of my Great Grandparents Francesco Scerbo and Giuseppe Campanalonga. At the ages of 14 and 15 respectively, they were put on a boat which arrived at Ellis Island some 6 months later. Separately, their future spouses emigrated to America in search of a better life. By the 1920's, Francesco had moved to the Bronx then eventually settled in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn buying a brownstone that my great Aunt resides in to this day- in her 90's! Giuseppe settled in New Jersey just over the bridge in Montclair and was a magnificent tailor. Growing up in New York with access to the real food of Brooklyn- specifically real Italian food and pizza, I did not realize how spoiled we were until moving to Colorado. You want pizza in NYC or on Long Island? There are 7 good to excellent pizzerias within a square mile. Long story short, while growing up, every Friday night was pizza night and that pizza came from Mama's in Copiague, NY. For over 37 years, we've enjoyed Tommy and Grace's food. In 2007, after moving to Colorado, I started making pizza out of necessity. We had driven from Wyoming to near Pueblo in search of something that reminded us of home. It didn't exist. New York style is NOT Real New York. There are a few notable pizzerias like Boriello Brothers in Colorado Springs and Fat Sully's Pizza on Colfax in downtown Denver, but beyond that, nothing was what my mind expected after nearly 40 years of NY pizza. I cannot tell you how many pizzerias our family visited only to walk out hungry or disappointed because the food was less than sub-par. I won't name names. What happened next was the purchase of a pizza stone and many iterations as I searched for the holy grail. Remember, pizza is very personal. What I like, someone from Kansas may not. After hundreds of attempts, I had honed in on what satisfied my mind's taste so I shared it with others. When a neighbor - also from NY - screamed from her front door "I LOVE YOU", I knew that it was close. This is a normally very quiet person who says very little.... Onward and upward! With a huge audience at Summitview Coffee on the other side of town, we began with a modest (small) oven. When I say we, I mean Anthony Francher and I. Having two Anthonys in the same place- both from NY and who love pizza - was and is to this day, a blessing. We cranked out many a pizza while introducing locals and people from all over the world to NY sauce(remember, this was a coffee shop, not a pizzeria). The sauce is key to the pizza's authenticity. You can buy dough and ready made cheese. Sauce out of a can tastes like sauce out of a can. Childhood friend and mentor Chef Chris Gonzalez taught me the basics, then said "fly". 8 Years later, it has taken on a life of its own. Our current location was built by a woman whose vision was incredible- Angie Huffman. She envisioned wood fired pizza and picnics in the park. The oven in the building was her idea. We are thankful for that vision for it allows us a distinct advantage over the rest of the town- Wood fired everything! Our house specialty is the Sicilian Pie from NY. It's a rectangular pizza with thicker dough which is cooked in a pan, twice. It takes about 25 minutes on average to make one. Authentic Neapolitan, thin crust pizza with fresh mozzarella, basil and virgin olive oil is our second style, then our third is a Real New York round pizza. An 18" pizza cooked in a brick oven is unheard of, yet we are doing it. Want a real calzone? No problem. How about a meatball parmigiana hero cooked on bread we make just for you- as in fresh bread baked to order? No problem. These things just didn't exist locally. Garlic knots- legit garlic knots? Sure. How about a home-made cannoli? Or perhaps lasagna on a cold night? We have all of this and more. Our Neapolitan pies are outrageous as we make our mozzarella fresh from curd. I could go on but the proof is in the smell and taste. Come to Antonio's to have your faith restored that good pizza does exist outside of NYC and some great conversation. Thank you for the opportunity.
