I was skeptical about "Phoenix Pizza" after growing up with NYC pizza. However, Spinato's didn't disappoint! We had the spinach/garlic/tomato (their house special) and it was delicious. Different for sure than a typical NYC pizza, but oh so good. If you are in Phoenix definitely try it out! Oh, and the wait staff was super friendly and the beer selection great!
Nice place, good taste and good cheese also. At least the specialty is not spicy.
The gluten-free pizza at this place is amazing. In fact, I'd say it's the best gluten-free pizza I've had since I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease seven years ago. Unfortunately, I don't live in Arizona, but I can pretty much guarantee I'll be ordering the spinach special gluten-free pizza every time I come visit family. Bonus points: Redbridge gluten-free beer for only $3 a bottle!
Good service, good beer selection, very good pizza. I'll be back.
One of my students moms raved about this place so we tried it. Now their pizza is my favorite! It's sweet and a delightful change from the corporate pizza out there.
My favorite pizza in town. Its all about their pizza sauce in my opinion.
This place is decent. The service was decent. We sat outside and encountered some weirdos who looked like they just got done with taping an episode of Jerry Springer. Sort of killed the "romantic" ambience we had going with the candlelit dinner but that's not the restaurant's fault. As for the pizza, the sauce is a bit sweeter like everyone says. It's not bad, but not really super good either.
I really haven't found much better pizza in the north Phoenix area. The thin crust is definitely the way to go. The toppings and cheese are plenty and the sauce is a good compliment (a bit sweet for my taste, but not enough to overpower the pizza). We sat outside and let's be honest here, it's hard for an Arizona restaurant to have an outside patio and have anyone want to sit at it between May and October. But it was pleasant (if not a bit windy from the hurricane fans and misters). The service was good and the total for both of us (1 medium pizza, 1 salad that we split and 2 iced teas) was $35.00. I was really impressed that they had a separate gluten-free menu. I can eat wheat for days, but it is nice to go to a place that offers alternatives for those people who need them. All in all, I'd recommend Spinato's. We will definitely be going back (mainly so my husband can try the spaghetti calzone)
Perfect what can I say yummy .good service and the best sauce
A great family-owned and operated neighborhood pizza place, Spinato's has a really sweet sauce on their pies that I cant get enough of. Square cut pizza is always easier to share with the family too. Eat-in or takeout service is always top-notch.
I've been to their other location at 1219 E Glendale Ave, and the bell location is a lot less tucked away and has a nice patio too if you enjoy outdoor eating. The pizza is consistent with their Glendale Ave location. and if you've never had their pizza before I highly recommend it I could go on and on about growing up in Illinois and eating all the authentic Chicago pizza's. but I won't , because if there's one thing AZ is full of it's transplants bashing the local fare and raving about the food at home. keep in mind they serve chicago style thin, which is a change of pace compared to the classic chicago style deep with the layer of sauce on top and the toppings stuffed in the middle. Typically with chicago style thin, some of the toppings will be under the cheese and it's generally a sweeter marinara than most are used to. If you're not in the mood for pizza I can also recommend the spaghetti calzone which my wife will order from time to time, I recommend ordering this with meatballs. but personally I'm a sucker for the pizza, also the prices are pretty reasonable and expect to have leftovers unless you've got a real A-game appetite If you don't know the story behind Spinato's originally it was under the name Aurelio's which if you've ever been in the chicagoland area is a local family owned favorite throughout the state. and my personal favorite, and one of my "we have to eat here" places when I go home to visit. Aurelios started out in AZ by a relative of the Aurelio family and eventually the family owned franchised took off the aurelios name, but continued to deliver the same high quality pizza under their own name Spinato. the pizza is not verbatim to Aurelios in IL, but it's damn close, damn tasty and good enough to inspire childhood nostalgia and a drive from surprise to 16th st and Bell. I'm almost a little sad that I didn't discover Spinato's up until last year. My wife has in the past even looked into getting mail order frozen pizza from Aurelios dry ice and absorbinent fees and all. and the closest thing I could find was deno's which was made in the same style but the flavors were different. fortunately they like to order this pizza at work and one day I tasted some pizza and was immediately reminded, I looked at the box did some googling and was amazed that they were here all along. I hope to frequent Spinato's and hope they setup a location further west.
The spaghetti and meatball calzone was genius. Would have likes more sauce in the calzone but maybe I didn't order it properly. The thin crust pizza was very good reminded me of Donato's back in Indy. Would definitely go again this was a pick up order will try in restaurant next time. .
OMG- their spaghetti and meatball calzone is freakin amazing! I don't know what my obsession with meatballs means, but this thing was incredible! We got a medium and split it and wished there was more after it was gone. Well done!
4-5 locations.. all 4.5 star average.. I think Arizona really has some fantastic Pizza options, and Spinatos is at the top of my pizza fix list.. the semi sweet sauce is addictive, great service, fresh ingredients, The Spicy Italian is my favorite... The chocolate chips cookies are laced with mind altering drugs, that make your body parts"romantic" when you think of their cookies.. BTW 5:30pm, on a Tuesday, when we left, a 30 minute wait.. Its on the List..
Recently ordered Spinato's again and just had to update to 5 stars... as much as I've always loved NYPD, I have to admit that this really is the best pizza I've had in the valley. It's not fair to compare the two, as they're totally different styles, but it's just so good. And they're local. Can't beat it!
Although they don't have the best food in town, it's not the worst by any means. it seems to be a bit healthier of an option if you're REALLY needing pizza, too. My vegetarian friend appreciated the veggie options here. I will put this out there though... their breaksticks must be sprinkled with love (or crack) because when they're on the table, I just cannot control myself!
Went back Saturday for lunch, Oh my... so good..Ordered the same as last time expect on our pizza our waitress recommended to put onions on it...she was right that was gooooooood. Hubby and me fought over the leftovers that night...hehe... so good..
This is hands down the very best pizza place in Phoenix. As a former Chicagoan, I know Chicago style pizza, and Spinato's is CHICAGO STYLE. They offer excellent service, fast and friendly waiters and waitresses (can you still say that or are they really just waitpeople now?) The food is great -- all of their offerings. The atmosphere is homey, and family oriented. Their location on Bell and 16th is small -- so big parties plan ahead (they will put tables together for you). They do have a nice outdoor area, but it gets hot in the summer, and sometimes smoke drifts in from patrons at neighboring businesses. Overall, excellent food, good prices, and real Chicago Style pizza. Two thumbs up!
At some distant time when Phoenix is all but ruins and covered over by the sands of the desert, the people who yet live will weep in anguish, not for the lost progress of science, or the greatness of our architecture, but for the fact they can no longer get Spinato's pizza. Count yourselves incredibly fortunate to be living in The Age of Spinato's.
Great restaurant for family, friends or even date night! Each time I go, I'm treated like family. Excellent service and excellent food at a great price. My favorite is the Mama's Spinatos Signature Fresh Calzone with Ricotta. It is out of this world good!
Love...love...love Spinatos! Honestly, one of the best pizzas in town. I've been eating here since the mid 90's and it has consistently been great! I usually get the Super Six. It has everything on there except the kitchen sink! The thin crust is never ever soggy and that sweet sauce is like crack to me! The service is always great. Do expect a wait on Fridays and Saturdays. If you have more than 8 people in your party, prepare to wait atleast 1 hour or more on busy nights. For an appetizer, totally go for the bruschetta!
Went here with group of friends for dinner. Waited for a long long time - 90 min. (granted. my fault not making a reservation). I cant say it for my friends, but I feel it was worth the wait. I wanted to try this place because it says its the best pizza in arizona. Two pizzas I enjoyed the most were Combo and Mama Spinato's pizza. Right in the middle between soft and crunchy, just right amount of cheese, and savory taste. Service was great even though we were eating at the balcony. Definitely will come back
Greatest pizza in the valley. Only thing that compares is oregonoes.
For a city saturated with Little Cesar's, Pizza Hut, Papa John's this place is a welcomed site. I've always had great service and really, really good pizza. I'm not generally a spinach fan, but their spinach pizza (award winning) has to be the best around. It would have to take a lot to dethrone this place as my favorite pizza joint. Their cheesy garlic bread is also pretty good.
Mamma Spinato's Signature Fresh Spinach pizza = the best ever!
All I can say is this place is absolutely amazing. One of the best pizzas or the best pizza I've ever tasted. I ate til I was miserable..
This place is awesome! My favorite is the Garlic Spinach pizza.
I have been the biggest Spinato's fan since the once small pizza parlor had one location in the valley. It has been exciting to see them grow. I guess what I like the most is the service is always the same no matter which lcoation you dine at. Even the food it consistanct. I recently dined with my family this past Mother's Day. The whole crew my family, friends and I came in to dine at one big table. We ordered a variety of all the fixings so we can all have the pleasure to sampele each other's favorite entree. The portion size of our pizza, garlic toast, cheese toast and salads were reasonable. I tried something different this time. I went with the Gluten Free Pizza. Boy was it yumm!. I did not feel like I was missing out on anything. Matter fact it was so good not one person at the table had an opportunity to sample mine. It was gone in no time. Everything is made fresh at Spinato's. They have some of the tastiest freshhome made sauces. Be sure to check out the website. You can order food to go.
Our son just moved to PHX and lives just up the road. A friend of his recommended we give this place a try. Holy cow, this place was good! We ordered a large pizza for 3 of us and split the toppings between 2 different ingredient combos. I was the one eating only the toppings because I'm low carbing. We barely finished this pie! Also had the antipasto, which was so fresh and delicious. Awesome dressing. Guessing our son will be a regular. Not sure if that's a blessing or a curse!
We ordered a pizza from Spinato's. we were specific about the toppings. When we went to pick it up, the pizza was wrong. Spinato's said they would remake the pizza ( a good 30 minute wait) or take as is. We took it as is, but were disappointed in such a response. We should have been offered a discount. The pizza itself was fine, but not outstanding. It was not greasy, and was rather tasty. However, I would think twice about Spinato's given they way they handled their error.
I love Spinato's! I have only gotten the Mama's Special, but it is always delicious. We did a take out order, and the staff was friendly. The pizza was ready when they said it would be.
We tried Spinato's Pizza for the first time on Friday, Sept. 4th for dinner. We selected Spinato's because my adult daughter has Celiac Disease and Spinato's has gluten free dishes on their menu. We were greeted by the friendly hostesses and seated right away. Our waiter was very friendly and he answered questions we had about entrees and pizzas on the menu. He was very knowledgeable. We were served our ice teas and soda's right away. Our order was placed and our food came out fresh and hot. My daughter and I had the gluten free garlic bread for an appetizer, she ordered the gluten free 10" pizza called Nicole's New Favorite, I had the turkey PLT and my husband ordered the Italian beef sandwich. Everything was fresh and tasty. I would highly recommend this establishment if you would like to eat authentic Italian cuisine.
Delicious calzones! They are filling and tasty. It's my go to item on the menu. My husband loves the thin crust pepperoni pizza. Drinks are a little pricy but then they give you a gigantic cup so it's worth it!
Have been going to spinato's for quite some time and have never had a bad experience. They have the best tasting crust around and generally my family leaves the crust for the dogs but with spinato's the dogs do not get any treats. My favorite pizza is the "Get Meaty" which has sausage, pepperoni, ham and Italian beef. I good mix of meats and is loaded in total weight. No matter what what pizza you order they will cook it to your liking. Have had the Italian bread which is good but don't get filled up on it before the pizza arrives. Lime this location but generally have been going to the 7th street location on the way home from work. Will be back again for more pizza.

Really really thought this was going to be a shining five star review. Ordered the cheese artichoke bread appetizer and it was freaking amazing.....so so good. Then a Greek side salad that was so big two people could split it. It was awesome....best Greek salad ever. The ordered pizza with all the meats. Came out all perfect, beautiful baked crust, elevated on a rack so it stays crispy. First bite....so good but something wasn't right. The sauce has so much sugar in it. It was ridiculous. Moved on to the spaghetti with vodka sauce with homemade sausage. The sausage was great. The sauce was so sweet it was unedible. So sweet it was almost sickening. I really had high hopes after the ratings but it makes me realize people do not know what makes good Italian food. My grandmother used to have a stock pot on the stove for the entire day or longer letting the sauce simmer and develop flavors and a body that would compliment the entree it was on. Note to everyone: marinara does not have a 1 to 1 tomato and sugar ratio.
Pizza Heaven. I have yet to try something at this restaurant that isn't brag worthy. Salads are amazing. Spaghetti Calzone is out of this world. Their sauce is sweet. No need to order extra sauce extra cheese because it isn't meant that way. In my opinion, the sauce is made at this level of sweet so that extra sauce isn't required. Extra cheese and you are drowning out that sauce that is to die for. If you are an extra sauce kind of person, ask for it on the side. Truly, they have their menu down to a science. Another plus is that they have a take & bake option. As well as a jar of sauce for purchase to take home. They have outside seating for when great weather emerges. Waiting area is a bit cramped but I suppose that is why the bar is right there. They hire great staff - friendly and attentive. Highly recommended Spinato's.
This experience was amazing!! Great Chicago style pizza and delicious wine !! Great company and awesome scenery!
Their pizza is always so good! For some reason I can't get enough of the Greek salad. Thanks for a great dinner tonight!
This has about become my favorite pizza joint since moving here from the East coast. Makes me forget Ledo's Pizza, which was my previous favorite. Have eaten here several times and never fails to deliver the goods. The atmosphere is kind, though sitting outside is preferred. Sets the mood for the food. Inside can get noisy. But with some chianti, or a seasonal brew, add a dinner salad and you'll be on your way to not caring ville. I have been told to never go on a Friday. Saturdays are very cozy though, once the dinner rush dies down. If you go around 8-9 you should be good. Obviously food is a matter of taste. Literally. I have heard their calzones are to die for but I can't seem to get away from the pizza. I used to enjoy the get meaty pizza but the garlic started to get me where it hurts a little too much. Have recently discovered something called The Super Six and this seems to be the one that hits the spot. My wife doesn't eat meat so she enjoys the "other mama's." This shall be your first lesson. There is "Mama's" and "Other Mama's." These are good for the veg heads. Both good. Just different. Garlic fiends will want "Mama's" though. Carnivores will probably want to stick with the get meaty. The Super Six has most of those meats, minus the beef (and garlic too!), along with mushrooms and some peppers. The best of both worlds. An interesting side note is their lack of bacon. I love me some bacon. But being a rebel myself one has to respect anyone who bucks the trend. The sauce is what makes this pizza so tasty. I'm a sauce guy, so there. Ledo's was the same way. You either love it or hate it. Have seen many that don't. I think it's the best though. To each their own. Give me good sauce, thin crust, fresh meat, lots of cheese and I'm good. Oh, and not sure where the cheese stands without specifying "extra" because we always do. But really now, who orders pizza without extra cheese? Spinato's is perfection every which way. Food, service, atmosphere. It's all here. With so many places down sizing their portions, changing their menu and skimping when it comes to service, after four plus years for me Spinato's seems to understand that not all change is good and only gets two thumbs up from me because I'm not a mutant and therefore can't give it more.
One of my absolute favorite places to eat in Phoenix. Nicole's New Favorite pizza on thin crust is an amazing selection. The restaurant can get a little packed on the weekends with longer than expected waits. I would also suggest the spaghetti and meatball calzone and almost any sandwich. You really cannot go wrong at Spinatos.
Get a calzone stuffed with spaghetti & meatballs & your life will forever be changed. Oh, and the pizza is awesome here too. It's quickly becoming my favorite date night location with my wife.
As a former NYer, I am pretty biased. But I have to say that it was pretty good (for AZ Pizza). Haha. No seriously, I would go back. I had a calzone (you have to ask for Ricotta to be added to it, which I thought was a little weird) but it was actually really good. Friends with me ordered a Pizza and it looked ok - not like NY Pizza, but everyone seemed happy. We were there for lunch during work and the service was great. Never a dirty plate or an empty glass. Would def recommend this place again.
One of my most favorite places! We happened along this place by accident while enjoying a "stay-cation" at a local resort. We were starving and not looking to pay resort prices for dinner. A quick little drive and we saw a sign that said pizza. The best accident we had! Location is in a strip mall and not terribly inviting, but go anyway because once you hit the front door it's like you walked into a friends house. Great smell from the kitchen and a small little bar with plenty of good beverages and cold beer. So take a look at the menu, ask for suggestions. The sausage is homemade and fantastic. My favorite crust is the thinner "crispier" crust. and there is no expense spared on toppings smothering edge to edge. So if you like to actually enjoy your toppings & sauce not just get a mouthful of dough this is your place. Word of warning, everything is big! The small salad easily feeds three & do try the garlic ranch dressing. The spaghetti is good, with homemade meatballs and the sauce...well let's just say the sauce is more of a sweet sauce full of taste and not just tomato paste. So our favorite pizza has quickly become the peperoni & sausage. We like to add sweet peppers too. But really you can go wrong. And even the Margarita pizza is outstanding. We have dined in & they deliver. Just got to the website & place a web order. Pizza was here in no time. I love taking out of town friends & family here because it is local owned & operated. A great family place and reasonably priced!
If I were a tasting judge for the best pizza in town, this one would be one of my top picks. I've eaten pizza in New York, and Chicago. This pie, bar none, is up there with some of the best I've ever had. This sauce! OMG, tastes like home. I've found my go to pizza place! Please go and judge for yourself!
I had heard how good Spinato's was in the past, but had never tried it until this past Friday night. We decided to have them deliver & ordered the following: their signature pizza (med), small dinner salad, garlic bread sticks (4) & apple serenata for dessert. The pizza was pretty good, but the sauce was a lil too sweet for us. Hubby liked his salad, it was pretty standard as far as salads go. The bread sticks were good & came with delish marinara sauce. The apple thingy was pretty good but they don't deliver ice cream (understandable), so I don't think I got the full effect. Overall, we might order from here again but we're not in any hurry. P.S. I loved their family photo on the pizza box!
Spinatos is not your normal pizza - its heaven on a plate. You must get the Mama's Original Spinach... sooooo good. The sauce has a sweet flavor to it. Unlike any other pizza I've had. For sure filling. The other thing my husband and I love about this place is that it's very obviously family run. The teenage kids work the front and act as servers - we love the vibe. I think its BYOB, too - bonus. Unique pizza that's great to mix up the usual slice routine once in a while.
We love the Margherita Pizza! Crispy thin crust. Service is great! We have been going regularly for past several months and will continue.
Spinatos is awesome. I don't know this place slipped under my radar for so long. It's been here since the 80's. Went here for lunch 2 weeks ago and plan on making it a weekly habit since. I went with 2 coworkers last time and we split a Chicago pizza, excellent, and less than $7 each with tip... Previous time to that was a spinach topped mini pie that hooked me. So hungry now and it's almost lunch time, maybe we should make it a 2 times per week minimum stop.
Best veggie thin crust of all time! This place is the best in phoenix and I am obsessed! Great service and just straight up tasty.
Ahh...Spinato's, Spinato's, I love you. I've only been here a few times and every time our waitress has been Maria. (I'm embarrassed if this is not her name because this is what I've called her). This waitress ROCKS! She makes you feel like you are part of the family and yes, she actually has a personality. She makes you want to return just so you can be waited on by her! - Aside from the very enthusiastic and bubbly Maria, the food is wonderful! My niece and nephew pretty much only like Italian right now, so I eat at a lot of Italian places. The kids, including me, very much enjoy the food and service. (yes, I mentioned the service again because it's worth mentioning!) My favorite here is the Marguerite Pizza. Yum Yum! Also, if you can, try the canola. It's not the best I ever had, but it's still pretty good. Oh, and there's outdoor seating as well. It's good for a small group get together, but nothing too large.
It's amazing! The spaghetti is the best I have had and the pizza is bomb too. This is a great spot for date night or take out.
Awesome chicago style pizza. Finally a great pizza place in Arizona.
After a ASU beat my Dad's once USC at home in the worst stadium ever, mind you.. My very happy ASU friends ordered up a Chicago style pizza from Spinatos.. THIS pizza rocks the valley; enuf said. It has a perfect crust texture.. and just the right amount of toppings & every week since then, I just crave it. Too bad I don't live closer. Oh well. That in itself probably keeps me thin! When I am with my friends out in N Phoenix watching games, this is the go-to pizza place! Get your sauce for the side... and yum!
Best gluten free pizza ever!!
THIS IS NOT YOUR AVERAGE PIZZA. If you have never had a Spinatos Pizza you need to try this place. You will be very impressed. Great Service! Great Food! Great Desserts! We have been coming here for a while now and cannot get enough of this place, They have a great tasting pie. We usually get a Hawaiian and once you put the first piece in your mouth you cant stop eating it. I highly recommend this place for your next stop. They have 4 locations and all family owned and operated. I have ate a lot of pizza over my time and this the best hands down. Also try their desserts they were created by the owners wife and are a great compliment to the end of a great meal. Once you eat at Spinato's you become like family. MMM GOOD!
Incredible pizza! Garlic bread was good too! A little pricey but totally worth it.
One of our favorite places for pizza! Their antipasta salad is wonderful with their house Italian. Mama's Signature spinach, tomato and garlic pizza should not be missed. The kids always get the pepperoni and sausage pizza. Spaghetti calzone sounds odd, I know, but if you're feeling adventurous, you should definitely try it. They also have the best gluten free crust! I order it even though I don't have any problem with gluten. Their family recipe sauce is sweeter than most but still very good. If you're looking for a local pizza place you can't find anywhere else, you don't want to miss this!
I'm not a huge pizza eater but when I do, it has to be good. Spinato's lives up to its reputation for having really good pies. I tried a large mushroom and antipasti salad. Both were very good and I would recommend this for someone looking for an oldie but goodie for pizza. It looses a star bc there is one or two other places that may be better...
Thanks again to my Yelpers. I live like a block from this place and never thought to try it because Pizza can just be pizza sometimes. I LOVE pizza too!. Its hard to find a good joint. We went there on Friday night for some pie and maybe some dessert. Good service. Good people. Good food. We had the Get meaty and the Spicy Italian. Not sure which one i liked better. Both were excellent. Fresh ingredients and it was hot too. The brownie dessert was pretty awesome too. Ken stopped by our table and had a nice conversation with him about Yelp and how we found his restaurant and how I would go home and yelp about Spinato's.
We went there on a Saturday evening. It was packed, but we only waited for a minute before being seated. the service was fast. The staff was polite. The pizza was very good. I wouldnt say that it was the best that I ever had.... because Deluca's Pizza in Lansing, Michigan is the best.... but overall, we were very pleased with Spinatos. We will definately return.
Spinato's. Where shall we begin? First of all my boyfriend and I were looking to try someplace new, and thanks to you Yelpers we found Spinato's! FANTASTIC PIZZA. I feel ruined. I could never eat from another pizza joint and feel okay about it...This place is in its own league. The only knock on this location is the ambiance leaves a bit to be desired. We'll be back :)
We stopped in at Spinato's the other day and had some thin crust pizza and a baked spaghetti calzone. All the food was delicious, especially the baked spaghetti calzone, which was something unique. The pizza was a bit too greasy for us, but some people like it that way. They also had a nice little outdoor patio area, but it was too windy at the time for us to sit there. Plus, great beer on tap to boot! They carry New Belgium's Fat Tire and Four Peak's Kiltlifter on tap. Thank you! They have a specific happy hour special for each day of the week, so check out their deals schedule before picking a night to dine there. We will be back.
Gone here a hundred times, dine-in & carry-out. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the pizza, the service is good and best of all, it's family-owned and NOT A CHAIN!
Spinato's is by far the best pizza in Phoenix. The sauce RULES! THe crust is excellent too, as is the ambiance. Service is always supurb. It is especially nice to see a family-run restraurant; a rarity these days. We have fond memories when the founder, Joe, would go table to table talking with the patrons, and sharing stories of the old days in Chicago. We often take guests from out of town here, and they ask to go back, whenever they are in town! Salads are great, and a very good portion, makes for sharing one with your guests possible. This is THE PLACE to take anyone that you wish to impress with an excellent meal.
I first tried Spinato's about a year and a half ago. I really liked it and wanted to go back, but for some reason, the wife didn't want to go back. Yesterday, I finally convinced her to go back (with an assist from her sister, who is a fan). We arrived right around 6:00pm and the wait was 30-35 minutes for a table (Note: This was odd as they have a patio with 5-10 tables, yet it didn't appear that they were seating anyone out there...not sure if it was because it was so windy?). We decided to put in a order to-go instead. Twenty five minutes later, our order was ready. We ordered the Mamma's Signature pizza, which comes with baby spinach, diced tomatoes and garlic. On the way back, I was worried that the pizza wasn't going to be as good as I remembered and that I had built it up too much in my mind. Nope, it was still delicious. The nice sweet sauce and the crispy crust on the outside, it was great. (The middle pieces seemed to get a little soggy, but I blame that on the drive home, rather than anything Spinato's did...). Even the wife said it was better than she remembered, so it looks like there may be more Spinato's in my future! The only downside was that we did not order any of their delicious garlic bread (one battle at a time!). I give Spinato's four stars due to the deliciousness of the pizza and the fact that I'll likely make return visits. I'm looking forward to having the leftovers too!
This is our favorite pizza place...we probably go once a week and enjoy ourselves every single time. The pizza is AMAZING!! We always get the same thing, a large (cause we always want to take some home!) thin crust pizza with green olives, feta and salami... and it is literally the best pizza we've ever had! Wednesday nights they have 1/2 of a bottle of wine and their house red is pretty good. Very family friendly (sometimes too many families...) but the patio is always a good, chill option. Def dont pass up an opportunity to experience Spinatos!
We ordered the combo Chi style pizza. OMG! Yummy, yummy, yummy. I ate until I was full and then ate some more. I'm a definite fan. The sauce is a little sweet, but it works. I'm looking forward to trying the location in Scottsdale. I'm thinking about trying a calzone.
Yum. Signature Mama all the way. This is a great place, no matter how you slice it.
Mmmmm, the signature mama is so yummy! I love that they deliver to my home too!
We ordered pizza delivery half Chicago and half Italiano, although it tooks in total 1 hour , they told us in advance so we were ready to wait. The delivery girl was friendly. The pizza was delicious, but a little pricey - its expensive when you add $5 delivery charge. Maybe next time we will pick up or go to the restaurant. I recommend it if you want a good pizza
A NJ girl has a hard time finding great pizza in AZ. This place is Chicago style but not deep dish like pizzeria UNO. The sauce is sweet just like i make at home. Toppings are fresh and plentiful without being to much. The bruschetta is fantastic! No reservations so be prepared to wait but it is worth it! The take and bake option provides a great product without all the standing around.
Great food, bad management and service. Get take out!
Absolutely the best pizza in all of Arizona. Locations in Ahwatukee, Tempe, N. Scottsdale and North and Central Phoenix you have NO EXUSE not to go. My only complaint about Spinato's is I eat way, way too much every time I go. God Bless the Spinato family!
Not good. We wanted to leave our leftovers on the table! Sauce was way too sweet and crust was way too chewy. Definitely not going back!
If you like your sauce sweet - I mean SUGAR sweet then this is the place for you. It does remind me of some Chicago pizzas I had as a kid - Just don't care much for the suagr sauce anymore...to each their own...
Spinatos has the best pizza in Phoenix by far! The sauce is delicious and the mamas signature spinach pizza is amazing! I can't resist the canoli for dessert, yum!!!
The best pizza in the great state of Arizona! Enough said
This is the best pizza my family & I have ever tasted. We had cheese bread, pizza and cheese ravioli and all of it was excellent. We also tried the apple/cinnamon dessert which also was outstanding. We highly recommend it!
Freaking good Pizza! We got the "New Nicoles Favorite" which was basil, feta, and something else. The pizza was deicious and fresh and paired perfectly with a glass of red wine. They offer convenient online ordering options and though they are tucked away in a shopping center, their customer service is on point. They had my order hot and ready at the promised time. I guess my ONLY critique would be I wish they put a *little* more sauce on the pizza, but that is just my personal preference. I will definitely be treating myself to Spinato's - glad to have found a good local pizza joint!
My favorite sauce of Pizza in the Valley. It's a little pricey but definitely a great Pizzza.
Finally had the time to try Spinatos for our 41st anniversary. Victoria was our waitress and she was great. Started off with a capese appetizers and it was very refreshing. Moved onto six meat pizza/meaty pizza and Chicago steak calzone. Every dish was delicious and portions were substantial. Party of three ate for less than 60.00 dollars with drinks (sodas and beer). Enjoyed dinner so much that we are planning a revisit.
Best pizza in the valley. Get there early if you want a seat this place fills up fast.
One of the worst dining experiences that we have had. Came in hungry, left very hungry!! We waited several minutes to even be acknowledged by our server. In fact another server came by to ask if we had been acknowledged and he got our drink order. Then our server showed up, she asked to take drink order told her that it had been taken and she walks away. Server brings back drinks, takes our order( very nice while taking order), ordered appetizer and salad and they came out fairly quickly. Strawberry Gorgonzola salad was good size and tasted good! Spinach artichoke was just warm but tasted good. We waited another 20 minutes for another personal pizza to come out. Again just warm. In this time we chomped on ice as our drinks were empty. Our calzone came out after our daughter was completely done with her pizza. While bringing our calzone, Server asks our daughter If she wants dessert, what??? Calzone, was cold inside, we couldn't believe it! We waited 50 minutes for cold food. We told our server to please take it away, and spoke with the manager. Unfortunately, experience was complete ruined by this time. Such a shame!!
Hands down the best pizza in town! We have only been here once but we will definitely be back for our next pizza fix. Whatever pizza you choose, I recommend the thin crust. We got a Super Six thin crust and a Sicilian pepperoni. The Sicilian was good but it was a bit too much bread for my liking (I prefer more toppings in a bite than bread). The Super Six was omg delish and their pepperoni was executed better than any pepperoni pizza I've seen with a drizzle of delicious marinara on top. We are definitely sold on this hot spot for pizza!
Saturday Dec. 6,2014, My wife and I enjoyed your thick crust pizza. As usual the pizza was outstanding, the service great. All said it was a perfect dining experience. We have been enjoying your pizza for many years, Our server was Suzanne, thanks to her and your staff.
I actually feel a little guilty giving Spinato's only three stars. The pizza is pretty high quality and made with very fresh ingredients. The sauce (a little too sweet for me) has a very unique taste and certainly did not come from out the the can that most places use. The website is easy to navigate and awesome for online orders. The girl at the pickup counter was as friendly as could be. So why only three stars? It's probably for the same reason I only gave the Tempe location three stars a couple years back when I lived down there. Spinato's is one of those places that is so close, but feels so far. I live just over four miles away, so they don't deliver to my house. Not having the time to dine out, but able to spear a few minutes to drive over, my fiancÃ© and I decided to give the place a try. During that drive I passed more pizza places than I could count which left me begging the question is it worth it? To be honest, I didn't think so. Don't get me wrong, it's a good pizza. I did like the Mamma Spinato's signature fresh spinach. We also had the traditional vegetarian, which was an enjoyable pie. Perhaps if I had dined-in, I would have enjoyed my meal a whole lot more. But unless you live really close, I don't think take out is the way to go.
WOW!! We couldn't decide where to have lunch so we based it on Yelp reviews and I'm happy to report, everyone was right! We shared the greek salad and a pizza. First off a medium was too large for the two of us, especially getting it as a deep dish. We will definitely be back ASAP!!
Still my favorite pizza joint/delivery in Phoenix, but expect delivery on weekend evenings to take 60-75 minutes. Great flippin' pizza though.
Great food, wonderful service! Been going here for years, and won't stop. I am always surety take friends and family. The pizza is great, but I suggest the baked spaghetti calzone
Been here a few times. The service is always great, the gluten free options are plentiful.
Sone of the best pizza in Arizona. I'm from NY so I can't say best ever. .. Haha, but very good and won't be disappointed.
On our way cross town. Yelp says Spinattis is great. We stopped for pizza and Yelp was right. Enjoyed the cool patio even tho temp is over 90. Also our service was fantastic. We prefer thin crust. This was perfect thin crust. Not wimpy and limp like some. Good there are other ones in the valley too. Coming back for sure.
I never have had a bad experience here. Best GF crust ever!!!
Maria was by far the best waitress I've ever had... Ever! She was very attentive to all of her tables and had the best attitude. Other than great service, the food of course was perfect. Real homemade Italian food! The salad was great and our pizza was called the Combo, sausage, sweet red and green bell peppers with mushroom and mozzarella on a thin crispy crust. Sooooo good! Desert not to mention was ideal! It was Maria's favorite and we decided to go with her suggestion. It was a warm apple pie that had vanilla bean ice cream on top. It was superb. I will defiantly be coming back with my family and friends. 3 thumbs up!
Great pizza! Their sausage and mushroom and the spinach and tomato were amazing! I don't know how they make their sauce it's different but definitely very tasty, I highly recommend it.
