Review of Dino's Italian Rest - CLOSED

Restaurant details
Reviewed June 3, 2014

Visited on a Saturday fairly late supper. We actually chose this pizza place based on some reviews from here, and the voice of the young lady on the phone when I called to ask the hours. She was upbeat and very pleasant. Karma may have been involved too as we had just walked out, unhappy, from another local pizza place.

The young lady who waited on us was the same person I spoke with on the phone. Friendly and seemed genuinely glad to see us. She guided us to a selection,a double deck pizza. We also ordered a Greek salad and a couple of drinks. My wife and I were engaged in conversation, so we really didn't notice right away that the salad had not arrived at our table, but by the time we noticed, the pizza was ready and they both came to the table at the same time. The salad was fresh and crisp, and although the dressing was a pre pack pouch, the overall was pretty good. The pizza was hot and very good. The toppings were abundant and the sauce was robust. The crust was just the right thickness for this style pizza. Good stuff!

A note about the facility.. As we understand it, the building used to be a Huddle House at one time. Don't expect ambiance or mood. Plastic plates and utensils, but you wouldn't have expected fine china based on the environment. The place was clean, and the employees seemed to get along nicely.
Carryout and delivery seems to be their forte.

So to sum up.. If you want some really good pizza at a reasonable price, at a not too fancy place... this is it.

Don't let the exterior fool you, it's in an old Waffle House so looks a little uninviting, but the food is quite good. Margarity pizza one of the better ones I've had, and the calzones are great and easily enough for two. They deliver as well. Very recommended if you're in Berea

The building does not look like a pizza place, but they know how to bake a Pie that is worth twice the cost.

If you are looking for a good place to eat in Berea off I75 exit 77, then try Dino's. Food is great and you can easily eat for about $8 or $9. If you are familiar with Berea restaurants, a fair comparison would be Papaleno's quality food, for about 2/3's of the price.

3rd Dino's restaurant I have visited and this one certainly does not disappoint! Fast service, pleasant surroundings, and delicious food make this a pleasant experience.

Don't let the size of the restaurant fool you---although small in size, it is big on selection and HUGE on value for your dollar. Out-Of-The-Way westbound on Exit 77 in Berea, it is in a rural setting just 1/4 mile off the interstate and not in a crowded environment, which I loved.

Friendly folks and authentic food make this a pleasant stop.
