PIZZINI'S – EXCELLENT, WE FREQUENT OFTEN, Steak, Chicken Fried Steak or Chicken Fried Chicken, All good, My favorite is Baked Pasta pesto with veggies. Good atmosphere. Liked everything I ever ate here.
I'm never disappointed – I have always thought this place as a hidden treasure. It has been here for years and I have never disappointed. The Seafood Lasagna is very rich and flavorful and my boyfriends swears the lasagna is one of the best he's had. A couple of weeks ago, I tried the steak because of the previous raving reviews and again, I was so very pleased. Even at Outback or Saltgrass, I have never had a steak taste so good and practically melt in my mouth. Since I am a lady, I orderd "The Lady's Steak" which was just enough to make me full, but not enough to want to take a nap. As for the pizza, I've never tried it, but I heard it was pretty good. To each's own I guess.
This is a great place for a great price!
Pizza is terrible!!! – I saw the reviews and thought I would play it safe and try the highly rated pizza. What a mistake! I ordered a pepperoni,sausage, and olive. I ordered it to go, and I was not too impressed with the aroma of the pizza on the way home. There was a strange smell that I couldn't pin down. You can always tell a great pizza by the way it smells in the box on the way home. It looked ok out of the box, except for some excessive cheese browning around the edges. Well the first bite was terrible. I could tell it was readymade crust, the kind that is processed and precooked and just warmed during the cooking process. The cheese tasted fake, and the sausage looked like hamburger and had no taste and was the culprit of the strange smell I noticed. The pepperoni was too smokey and tasted like summer sausage. The sauce was subpar and tasteless. I have had Pizza Hut (yuck) pizza that tasted better! All I can say is if they make this terrible pizza, I would beware of the other menu items.
Excellent Steaks! – I have been going to Pizzini's since I was a little girl. I took my husband there about a year ago, and now he wants to go every week. They have awesome steaks. The lasagna is a little greasy for my taste, but the shrimp alfredo is a delight. The atmosphere is very friendly, its a great place to dine with friends and family. Its very reasonable, my husband and I can both have a large steak with sides and soup/salad for under $35. There isn't really a kids menu, but I typically order my girls a personal pizza for them to share. In the past I have also ordered them chicken strips, ravioli, and spaghetti. The portions are pretty big for a youngster so if you have more than one preschooler by all means feel free to let them share. My family of four can eat for under $45-$50 and the food is excellent. Friendly service. It's always the same nice, attentive wait staff. Parking is difficult since its such a popular place to eat. Its a small parking lot and people just about park on top of each other.
Great steaks – I love the steaks here; come out the way you ordered plus you get trips to the salad bar and a potato side. I recommend the au gratins. Friendly service.
