“Not like any pizza you've ever had before”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

This is one of our favorite local pizza joints. They definitely don't skimp on the ingredients. The mozzarella cheese alone is reminiscent of when pizzas were made with real ingredients rather than the thin, snappy stuff the chains pass off as cheese today. Very doughy crust which is nothing like thin crust or deep dish but it's own concoction. Might be an acquired taste but we enjoy it. The owner Nino is very friendly and a Wheeling tradition that we are proud to have.

“Ok pizza but fantastic salad!”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

My husband ordered the 18" pepperoni pizza and while it was HUGE in size, it lacked in taste. However, my "Joe's special" salad was absolutely fantastic! It was full of bacon pieces (they definitely didn't skimp on that) and was decent sized.

The service is also good (as the previous reviewers have stated). We were just really hoping for slightly better tasting pizza.

“Average pizza, great service”
Reviewed November 18, 2011

This place has a nice selection of affordable Italian food. Make sure you try the Minestrone soup.
Their pizza can be anywhere from below average to good depending on your luck. Try it!
