Description: Andolini's Pizzeria on Cherry Street in Tulsa and on 96th Street in Owasso is a local business run by two brothers, Mike and Jim Bausch, and one of their close friends, John Davey. Mike and Jim grew up in Jersey and had time on the West Coast, too, and bring the full range of great pizza and Italian cuisine to their restaurants in Tulsa. Everything that can be made in house, is made in house. That includes the dough/crusts, the sauces, dressings, mozzarella cheese, even the sausage is handmade at the store. No freezers, no microwaves, no rolling pins (we toss dough!) and no sheeters. The Tulsa store features an open kitchen and both locations have multideck Rotoflex pizza ovens that can handle multiple 20" pizzas at once.

“Great food...but a tight squeeze!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2013

The food was great, so I didn't mind the hour 1/2 wait! But this restaurant is not for parties 10 or more. As the host take us to our small table we express concerns that this is not enough table space.. When our food comes out we didn't have enough space to put our food on the tables, so some of the party had to wait to eat.

Hi, Gabrielle! First, we are so glad you enjoyed the food. We take pride in preparing everything possible fresh and in house because we think our guests deserve delicious food they can absolutely feel good about eating. On the other hand, we apologize that the space for you to enjoy your dinner didn't work out well. We definitely don't want people who come to share a meal together to not end up eating at the same time. Warmer weather will help expand options for larger parties on the patio, and we also want to make sure you know about our original location in Owasso... the interior seating and layout allows us to easily accommodate larger parties. Same delicious food and attentive service, just more space to enjoy it! Thanks for coming in and bringing in your party, and we hope you'll give us another opportunity to make the entire experience amazing for you.

“Definitely the best pizza in Tulsa”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

This may be a small restaurant but the food from the place is amazing !!! Depending on when you go, there may be a wait but it will certainly be worth it. We have been to Andolini's several times and have never been disappointed with the service or food.

The garlic knots are so tasty and are a must try. We haven't tried anything other than pizza because they are so good, why mess with perfection ?!?! All of the ingredients are fresh and the crusts are fresh, flavorful and delicious !!!

“Excellent service, great food makes it worth the wait.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2013

This is a much smaller restaurant than it looks from the outside, so beware, if you see a line at the door. We went on a Wednesday evening at 5:45, and found a 20 minute wait which was closer to 40. That said, we were heartened by the kitchen handing over a plate of garlic knots for all of us to share during the wait, after we were seated, I noticed another antipasto plate making its way through the small waiting area. Not sure what the health department would say, but I approve!
Once we were seated, we had a great server who was very helpful with beer and wine selections and the menu. We had a nicely herbed bruschetta as a starter, a very nice salad and a great hand tossed pizza. Lots of unusual ingredients to chose from, and we had a combo supreme, and prosciutto, sausage, artichoke hearts, and mushroom pizza. Very well done pie!!
The prices were a little higher than your normal pizza place, but fairly priced for the quality.

With warmer temperatures coming on, the outdoor seating might ease some of the wait concerns, but we had a great meal that was worth the wait.

“Bingo!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2013

Good friendly service, great beer, and most importantly; great pizza! We had the Tenbysimmo (gobs and chunks of Pepperoni, Canadian bacon, Genoa salami, pastrami, ground beef, Italian sausage). Wish we had an Andolini's in or near OKC...fantastic!

“Fun to watch them toss the pizzas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

When we walked in, the pizza chefs gave our kids a small chunk of pizza dough to play with.
They had a great time watching behind the glass as they pizza chefs tossed pizzas in to the air.
Pizzas were very tasty. I liked how the onions on the combination pizza were cut in thin slices, so they were perfectly cooked on the pizza.
The spinach speck alfredo sauce pizza was delicious.
We stopped there on our way from Iowa to Texas. Glad we stopped.
We ate there at 3pm on a Saturday afternoon and the place was full.
Atmosphere was unique.
