“Weekly pizza!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2014

There is no other pizza but Pontillo's for us, and we eat their pizza every week. I love their "girly pizza" as my husband calls it - white garlic sauce with spinach, ricotta, and tomatoes - excellent. Their sausage is by far the best ever and they use a high quality cheese, which certainly makes a difference. BTW - their large is a really big large. There are a few tables to dine in, but this is mostly a take-out place. If you are new to the area, do not look for Pontillo's on the outside sign - it just says Pizza!! You will not be disappointed.

“Great tasting sausage”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2012

We custom ordered a sausage, chicken and spinach pizza. I was surprised that the chicken was a cut up breaded patty, but it was tasty. The sausage is in the form of small crumbles and very flavorful. It's definitely a New York style crust where the middle is limp. (My favorite is a crisp Chicago style crust.) No frills, no service, but great pizza. We'll go again.

“One of best pizzas I have ever had!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2012

Yummeeee! Tried this place because of TA reviews, and glad I did. We had a pizza that was out of this world. I think the Broadway Bar is the best in SRQ, but these guys are just as good! Not much atmosphere in the restaurant, but overlooking that, the pizza was grand!

“The only pizza we eat in Sarasota”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2012

We eat pizza almost every Thursday night from Pontillo's. In all these years, our order has never been wrong. They use really good cheese and sausage (never greasy) and the Tomato Florentine (my hubby calls it the "girly pizza') is soooo good.
