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!


User:Eduardo F.


Nice place, good taste and good cheese also. At least the specialty is not spicy.


User:Olivia B.


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!


User:Duane T.


Good service, good beer selection, very good pizza. I'll be back.


User:Debbie S.


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.


User:Isaac K.


My favorite pizza in town. Its all about their pizza sauce in my opinion.


User:Chukki S.


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.


User:Leigh Ann D.


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)


User:Angie J.


Perfect what can I say yummy .good service and the best sauce


User:Noah P.


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.


User:Matt H.


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.


User:Pam Z.


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. .


User:hilary c.


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!


User:Jeff W.


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..


User:Colleen C.


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!


User:Ashley G.


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!


User:Liz L.


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..


User:Carol H.


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!


User:Shaun C.


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.


User:Marnie A.


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!


User:Tani L.


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!


User:Anderson L.


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


User:Mark T.


Greatest pizza in the valley. Only thing that compares is oregonoes.


User:Eric D.


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.


User:J. R.


Mamma Spinato's Signature Fresh Spinach pizza = the best ever!


User:Stephen C.


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..


User:Ryan W.


This place is awesome! My favorite is the Garlic Spinach pizza.


User:Alicia G.


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.


User:Margie D.


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!


User:Tim H.


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.


User:Donna B.


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.


User:Caroline T.


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.


User:Sky P.


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!


User:Dwayne O.


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.


User:Melissa B.


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.


User:Michael M.


This experience was amazing!! Great Chicago style pizza and delicious wine !! Great company and awesome scenery!


User:Meg H.


Their pizza is always so good! For some reason I can't get enough of the Greek salad. Thanks for a great dinner tonight!


User:Bungle G.


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.


User:Brad W.


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.


User:Jay S.


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.


User:Stephanie S.


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.


User:Holly M.


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!


User:Ron R.


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!


User:Fairbi K.


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!


User:Teri B.


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.


User:Kim C.


We love the Margherita Pizza! Crispy thin crust. Service is great! We have been going regularly for past several months and will continue.


User:Justin C.


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.


User:Brittany L.


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.


User:deadpan n zany d.


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.


User:Ann D.


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.


User:Honest R.


Awesome chicago style pizza. Finally a great pizza place in Arizona.


User:Cat K.


Spinato's rules!


User:Kimberly M.


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!


User:Sya - 'Urban Oasis' W.


Best gluten free pizza ever!!


User:Scott M.


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!


User:Sage L.


Incredible pizza! Garlic bread was good too! A little pricey but totally worth it.


User:Kristen S.


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!


User:Heather V.


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...


User:Ken S.


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.


User:Alicia W.


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.


User:Alexis C.


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 :)


User:Wes N.


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.


User:V W.


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!


User:Rick R.


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.


User:Bryan B.


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!


User:Jennie C.


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.


User:Rachel V.


Yum. Signature Mama all the way. This is a great place, no matter how you slice it.


User:Shari N.


Mmmmm, the signature mama is so yummy! I love that they deliver to my home too!


User:Patricia R.


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.


User:Megan M.


Great food, bad management and service. Get take out!


User:Donny P.


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!


User:Ivana C.


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!


User:Tony T.


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...


User:Danielle L.


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!!!


User:Matthew B.


The best pizza in the great state of Arizona! Enough said


User:Eddy H.


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!


User:Tricia F.


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!


User:Greg F.


My favorite sauce of Pizza in the Valley. It's a little pricey but definitely a great Pizzza.


User:Dan R.


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.


User:Benjamin P.


Best pizza in the valley. Get there early if you want a seat this place fills up fast.


User:Nancy S.


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!!


User:Laraine J.


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!


User:Lawrence F.


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.


User:Richard R.


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 fiancé 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.


User:Tonya M.


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!!


User:Mike S.


Still my favorite pizza joint/delivery in Phoenix, but expect delivery on weekend evenings to take 60-75 minutes. Great flippin' pizza though.


User:Steve B.


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


User:April K.


Been here a few times. The service is always great, the gluten free options are plentiful.


User:Matt C.


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.


User:N M.


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.


User:Mindy B.


I never have had a bad experience here. Best GF crust ever!!!


User:Drea C.


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!


User:George J.


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.


User:Aletheia W.


Mama's Signature. Extra crispy. Eat the corners/crust pieces first. and that is allllll you need to know to enjoy Spinatos. The Bell Rd and Tempe locations are the best. Be prepared to wait a bit at this location; they do have great take-out service, which is quick and right next door to the dine in location. One of my fave Valley pizza places.


User:Ervin H.


Great family restaurant with quality pizza and pasta at good prices. The wifey and I usually go here after church, and they have a small and quaint ambience. The service is great while the pizza just tastes amazing. We will definitely be back for my pizza cravings after church!


User:Dane E.


Always great pizza and fast service. This company makes a unique sweet pizza sauce that all of my customers I fed for lunch today really liked. The pizzas are nice sized for the price, and vegetables and meat are spread generously. My take out order was on time and Kimberly greeted me with a smile. I was told by the owner months before that the pizza sauce recipe has been passed down for generations. We'll Done!


User:Scott M.


Pizza was mediocre at best...dry cheese, tasteless crust and an oversweet sauce; maybe it had something to do with the fact that the pizza was stuck in their version of a heat lamp, warmer for 15 minutes while I waited for them to make the marginal, overpriced [strawberry gorgonzola spinach] salad I ordered with my pizza. Seriously, it takes 20 minutes to make a pizza and you can't have the salad ready? I've had better frozen pizza, and $30 for a large cheese pizza and salad, I felt violated for the quality of food they provided. Never again.


User:Sarah R.


One of our family's favorite places! Consistently great service, recent functional expansion to get carry-out orders out of the way of dine-in guests. Bartender (i think Vicki) is fantastic, kiltlifter on tap, Wednesdays 1/2 priced wine bottles, good portions on salads, great pizza options and attentive staff. Despite the various locations in the phoenix valley, we could really use one further west =)


User:Kellyann C.


Ok the food is decent. Definitely not the best in PHX. I originally used this company because I support local businesses. I use spinatos also for my customers at my bar (we don't have a kitchen) but little did I know, they ONLY deliver from 4pm- 9, or 10pm. And the delivery time is ALWAYS an hour- 1:15min... I usually end up calling them back because they're late, yes it ends up being 1:30 min. Not super happy with the delivery service.


User:David H.


I have been.coming here for almost 30 years. Both of my kids have grown up on their pizza. Thus is by far are favorite pizza place.


User:Angela D.


We love everything about this place. We can't believe we didn't discover it sooner. Thanks to Nick and the crew for always taking care of us and our kids! If you want great food and love to support local, this place is perfect for you! Get the Super Six if you're not on the wagon. Oh and start with the mozzarella cheese bread. The gluten-free Greek pizza is awesome if you roll like that. And go on Thursdays. Trust me. Half price pitchers. Enough said.


User:Frank S.


Everything about this meal was great!!! Calzone and pizza we perfect and tasty. Even though the restaurant was busy the food came out in the perfect time and obviously came from the oven to our table. For desert we had the Apple Serenata, it's a type of Apple desert that is specific to this restaurant and I'd come back just to have it again. If you're looking for a neighborhood restaurant with great food and friendly service stop here!


User:Emily C.


If you have a chance you definately need to try this place!! Ravioli with vodka sauce is the best!! Service is great they are always extremely friendly and food comes out fast!! Don't pass this place by.


User:Wendy C.


If you are looking for pizza on the sweeter side with friendly servers this place stays consistent in its tastyness!


User:Brian K.


The spicy Italian pizza has changed my life. I can't even try anything else here and all other pizza is just ordinary. Unfortunately they are closed on Mondays but the pizza rocks. Yummy...change in review...they are now open on Monday. Yay!!!


User:Allan A.


The service here was good. Unfortunately, the food here, like other Spinato's locations I've been to over the years, was bland, bland, bland. In the area, the location was convenient for the time that we had to give. On this trip we tried a Sicilian pepperoni pizza (excessively oily) and a MaMa's signature calzone (wet and runny, not moist). While there are worse places to eat, there are certainly better.


User:Tim B.


Worth every penny and then some. The secret is in the sauce I am pretty sure. The pizza is thin crust and sliced into squares so each piece is easy to handle. Meats are great and fresh, spegetti calzone is amazing, and prices are really good for the quality you get. Be warned though...,once you have Spinato's pizza the other stuff just won't do.


User:Andrew W.


I had a hungry family of 12 visiting from out of town and decided to try this place based on their Yep (Yelp Rep). They delivered big time. The pizzas arrived at my door on time and hot. We ordered 'da greek' and it got rave reviews from everybody. I will definitely order from them again!


User:K Z.


We came here one night for pizza and had an unpleasant surprise. The pizza we had was so incredibly salty that after a piece I just couldn't eat anymore. My mouth felt saturated with salt the entire evening. The waitress was very nice.


User:Bad L.


People who are not from the East Coast won't understand this - but this is Greek Pizza. Greek Pizza is cut differently and tastes differently. Their sauce is sweeter. More sugar and perhaps more Oregano? If you like Greek pizza or want something different, but still very good, then go. If you don't know what Greek pizza is, then stop complaining. Saying this place sucks is like going out for Chinese, but expecting Japanese. Opppa!!! Why 4 stars? The wait staff does suck. A group of waitresses sat at a back table, while people needed to be seated. Our waitress was great, but I would have hated to have these other girls.


User:Artemis S.


Well, had to try this pizza since everyone on here and ON DA STREET has been raving about it. I gotta say, the pizza's not living up to the cred; oh, it's pretty good, but it's good in the way Pepsi is "better" than Coke i.e. it has more sugar. Yeah, so they do they sweet sauce gimmick. While it makes your mouth want more, in my case my head was asking why I was eating a pizza doused in ketchup. Okay, so it wasn't that bad (in fact it was highly tasty), but y'know. I just wonder how it would've tasted with normal sauce. Anyway, what I really want to comment on here is the customer service: I was impressed! I like when I go to a place and you can tell the people really give a damn about your experience and aren't flashing the fake "Scottsdale" smiles that have been rigorously trained into them by some customer service guru or whoever it is who thinks anybody likes that junk. The guys there were all about my needs, cool, and didn't try upselling me a bunch of junk. Just a breath of fresh air in this (and really any) city. I'm a big Chicago pizza guy, so maybe I'll give them another chance; next time with what I call the "real" Chicago pizza experience. (Stuffed pie) BYE


User:Erin B.


This place was AMAZING! Amazing food, friendly and fast service, and a really great menu with lots of fantastic Italian favorites. Also, they have Pepsi products!!!! Hooray! I got the Italian sub sandwich and the hubs for a little personal pizza, both of which were cooked perfectly! Gooey cheese, crispy bread, and yummy, warm Italian cured meats!


User:Michelle A.


Just fun, good food. Ask for Jimmy...he's a kick.


User:Jessica L.


Like most of the other reviewers the pizza sauce here to me is on the sweeter side, but I liked it. I noticed a lot of people order their pizza extra crispy; we didn't and the crust was crisp but it didn't crunch, if you like that - ask for it. The hubby and I shared a small pizza and a pitcher of beer plus a side salad. Our Bill was $30 plus tip and we were plenty full. Wed night is half off bottles of wine too; not that big of a selection but getting a $30 bottle for $15 is a great deal. The staff was nice and very attentive to our party of 10. Nothing to complain about at all from our visit. Great job.


User:Nick C.


Let's start off by saying that last night i got delivery from here, and it was an absolute disappointment. Had some friends over to celebrate my promotion, having a few beers.. when i come up with the bright idea to order Spinato's. I feel as if i will pay the extra price to eat there, because as far as quality ingredients.. they have it in the bag.(compared to dominoes or wherever delivers) Called at exactly 5:55. Didn't end up arriving until 7:43. Which i was a little Hangry about.. Total was $53.00, gave the driver $70. Keep the change. Open up the pizza, first thing i notice is its terribly smashed to the top on the box. (well at least it's hot) NOT. Like it had been sitting around for quite some time. Open the bruschetta..just some bread, and tomato bits strewn about in some tinfoil. (maybe the mozzarella sticks will be great) Cold. Just like the Super 6 i ordered. Sad day in pizza eating history. I am not sure if regular management was away.. Or they had new management? But i was incredibly disappointed in the feedback i received when i called to complain that i just spent $70 on some Cold,Smashed pizza to be delivered to my house. AND tipped quite well. Bottom line is, if you are thinking about getting a delivery from here, THINK TWICE.


User:Brooke B.


Only pizza I will eat! Sauce is amazing and they are not skimpy on the toppings at all! Happy Hour has some great deals as well! Service is always great I highly recommend going out to eat there!


User:Toni T.


Just love this place. My family is hooked ;) Someone FINALLY brought Chicago to Arizona. Dream come true. Fabulous food!


User:Norm R.


I'm glad that I finally found yet another pizzeria that offers gluten-free options for pizza and other items. The gluten-free pizza crust is made by GFC (Gluten Free Creations, one of my fave GF establishments in the city). Tucked in a quiet commercial strip, the place has a very casual vibe and very friendly service. The sauce tends to lean a bit toward the sweet side, but pleasantly so, in my opinion. Nice to know that I have a cool place to reward myself after a hike at nearby Lookout Mountain.


User:Steve V.


Found this place by accident when someone brought in some pizza for lunch. Wow just had to go check it out for myself. Walked into the take out section placed an order and they gave me a free fountain drink while I waited. Very clean, friendly and attentive to customer service. And oh yeah the reason I came in is that their pizza rocks! Had the thin crust pep and Italian sausage. Amazing! Yummy! Just found a new fav!!!


User:Michael M.


Really love this place. It has a very home feel to it and everyone is super nice. Food is not stellar, but way above average and well worth the extra trip.


User:Allie M.


The pizza is delicious!!!! I had half Hawaiian half spicy Italian on thin crust & it was so good!! The cheese to sauce to toppings to bread ratio was perfect. It's going to be my new go to pizza place. Can't wait to try other items on the menu.


User:Nick R.


I am from Chicago, and Spinatos is by far the best pizza in az. Just like south side Chicago pizza, thin crust. Amazing sauce like no other. Delivery takes a bit but it is well worth the wait!


User:Maddie F.


I absolutely love this place. I just moved back to Arizona from New Mexico and was really excited to find a local pizza place. There is a perfect amount of garlic in their pizzas. Its just fantastic. I've never gotten a bad pizza ever..


User:Kyle R.


Have been a big fan of Spinato's since I was first introduced a few years back. I have been to the North Phx, Tempe, and Scottsdale locations and they're all very pleasant. I would highly recommend their spaghetti calzone to a first-time diner. I like it with or without the meatballs and ricotta cheese options. You may be able to split the "small" size between two people. Decent pricing for a date for two: - They have nightly drink specials (1/2 off bottles of wine, ladie's night, guy's night, etc.) - Split the Small House salad & fresh bread to start (or indulge in the mozzarella cheesy garlic bread) - Get the Spaghetti Calzone (my favorite item on the menu) - Maybe add on a personal size pizza too - the flavor is great! I go with the thin crust and about any combination of toppings will do the trick. Also - take home any leftovers - they re-heat great for a couple days!


User:David G.


Good pizza - if you like sickening sweet sauce. Yelpers, you seriously are high to give this joint anything over 2 stars. Family friendly and family owned gets one star, maybe another star for homemade sausage, but that's about it. $23 later and I feel like I had a Tombstone pizza with Prego sauce. The garlic was foodservice pre-minced crap? How difficult is it to chop some garlic? Do yourself a favor - avoid and have a real pie. No need risking Type II Diabetes from dinner.


User:Renee H.


I adore Spinato's! I was introduced to them by a coworker and I have been hooked ever since. My personal favorite is the spaghetti calzone. The personal size is more then enough, but I can down the larger sizes like no body's business! What seals the deal with the 5 stars is the service. I have NEVER had a bad experience. The staff is wonderful whether you dine-in or takeout. We were eating there just this weekend and I was amazed at how well they work together. If someone sees your drink empty, they will fill it up, even if it isn't there table or section. On your way out, so many people Thank you and wish you a good evening. The staff is amazing and it really shows!


User:Rachel P.


This is the BEST pizza in Arizona! The sauce is sweet, the cheese is yummy, and they have the BEST thin crust pizza! The staff is super sweet. I would highly recommend coming here!!! The staff is really sweet.


User:Barnabas L.


Wow, Spinato's well done well done.. Okay since i am yelping this based off my experience it has to be a 4 not a 5. The food...amazing, got the signature mama...something something..pizza, the one on the top. We ordered it with some italian sausage, since it doesn't come with meat at all. Well the pizza came out and it was AMAZING...but no sausage :( imagine if it had sausage i would have been happy. The dough was/is a garlic dough which makes it delicious. I really loved the strong garlic essence coming off the pizza. All the flavors mingled together perfectly to create a sensational bite. (um hog the corner pieces if you can, they be the best) The sauce was sweet, which turned it into a different beast of a pizza. Either way i loved it, but would have loved it more with italian sausage. The waitress admitted she forgot to add that to our order and made up for it with a discount.. Awesome! she offered we didn't even say eww take it back or anything (because at this point we were too hungry to wait again) The service was a little awkward at times, but it was great none the less. Their desserts are really good as well, i am no canolli connoisseur, but this was delicious to me... i would easily blow my paycheck here IF they had wings too...but the pizza is good enough for half my paycheck...


User:Jeff D.


The fam and I tried this place out on the recommendation of a coworker. We arrived around 6:30pm on a Saturday evening. The place was packed, and we were told there would be a 10 minute wait for the patio or 20 minutes for indoor. While I wasn't thrilled with sitting outside in Phoenix in the summer heat, there isn't a lot of space in the lobby to wait without being in somebody's way, so we opted for the patio just to have a place to go. Luckily they have a shade screen to protect from the afternoon glare and the misters were on full blast. Overall the place had a nice ambiance and it was not uncomfortable. The service was prompt and friendly. As for the food, we started with a caesar salad and the meatball trio. The salad was pretty typical but still worth it. Skip the meatballs; the sauce on them was exactly the same texture and taste as everyone's favorite eponymous canned pasta product we all grew up with. Great when you are eight, not so much as a grown-ass adult. Skip it. For the pizza, we did half Nicole's Old Favorite (red onion, salami, artichoke heart) and half Super Six which is basically a combo. Both were very good. The sauce is definitely sweeter than average, but we have since been able to try another location in Tempe and the sauce there was far less sweet, so be aware there is some variation apparently between sites. For dessert I had the apple pie/crisp type thing that was really good. My wife and daughter tried the tiramisu which they enjoyed. Prices were reasonable.


User:Daren C.


I HATE when I have a preconceived review of a 5 star rating and I get disappointed. I just wish I tried this one for lunch not a full dinner. Spinatos disappointed me big time. The waitress was a ditz, seemed like she was busy thinking about drinking as soon as she got off work. The pizza was OK... they did not ask what crust we preferred and we got the thin. (not my favorite) The toppings were very sparse and not that fresh. (we got the 6 toppings on kinda like a "everything" The sauce was so sweet I thought it was a frozen kid pizza. The salad, while large, was brown wilted, bagged lettuce. The tomatoes were dry and colorless. We asked for garlic ranch and she gave us Italian. They do not have Blue Cheese dressing either The ravioli was boring, the bread stick was hard and dried out. She came by asked what type of gelato the kids wanted, came back 5 min later and had totally forgot she asked asked already. I was not impressed at all by the entire meal.

I am a Chicagoan. Not the suburbs of Chicago, but the heart of the city. There are a number of things I miss about my city: Garrett's popcorn, neighbood festivals every weekend, Lou Malnati's pizza and of course my family.....not necessarily in that order. When someone says they have Chicago-style pizza I feel it is my duty to try it. There are a bunch of pizza places in Chicago that have amazing pizza and they all do it differently so there isn't just way one to make Chicago-style pizza, but Spinato's came pretty damn close. We ordered the Chicago-style with 1/2 mushroom for my man. The mixture of yellow and red bell pepper was a nice touch, most places use green bell peppers. The sauce was a bit on the sweet side, I'm not used to that. The pizza was not greasy, had the right amount of cheese and toppings and the cornmeal crust reminded me of home. I'm happy to say that Spinato's lived up to the hype.


User:Tara B.


AMAZING!!!! We have been coming to this spinatos for over 6 years and we LOVE it! Everything about Spinatos is incredible - food, staff, service, atmosphere, and did I say FOOD? The food is amazing, you cannot go wrong with anything on the menu. The Chicago pizza is so delicious. The prices are great and they do daily specials. We go with our best friends on Wednesdays because it is 1/2 off a bottle of wine and they have some delicious choices - the cara Mia is a nice Pinot they have. We love it when Rob is our server he is super fun and always makes us feel like family, very attentive and a great server all around, ask to be seated in robs section and you won't be disappointed. another great server is Maria but she is only there once a week I believe, very nice lady! Spinatos has a sweet sauce unlike anything I've ever tasted it definitely makes the pizza. It's amazing.


User:Jeffrey A.


Extremely average pizza. The server was very nice and helpful, but the pizza was nothing special.


User:Jeanine P.


OMGthis pizza is the bomb that's all i gotta say!


User:Ron P.


My first time here was a great experience and I am looking forward to going back to try a plain thin crust pizza. I tried the thin crust with Italian beef and fresh tomato and it was very good. However to me the test of a really great pizza is to have it with just cheese and sauce. I also plan to ask if they will cut it NY style! I just like the triangle slices!!


User:Amelia S.


So so good. Favorite pizza place in town. Chicago style thin crust, square slices, sweet sauce. Delicious.


User:Kelly K.


Pizza is good! sauce is sweet. They have lots of options.


User:Justin L.


Great pizza and service here. They are a key player on our take out rotation. We like do do a half Lil' Italiana and a Half Get Meaty but sub the Canadian bacon with meatballs. Omnom


User:Kris H.


Since moving more centralized, this has become my wife and I's favorite pizza for dine in and to go, as well as the Glendale Ave location. They offer gluten free crust, willing to do no chese and several sizes of pizza, so your party can get one or two pizza's for all or everyone can get their own preference. I generally get the small size for myself, which leaves my with 30-40% of the pie for leftovers for breakfast or lunch. Not bad to get 2 meals for $8-12. The Lil' size is usually enough for 1, if you will not be near a fridge in the near future. My faves are the Spicy Italian and Canadian on thin crust. We recently took my in-laws here and it was a hit with all! My nephew loved the cheese steak calzone. My mother and father in-law got a thick crust pizza, which was huge and hearty! They may still be eating it for leftovers. Bro in-law and niece split a plain cheese pizza and said it was aewsome. The services is always, friendly and the staff makes you feel at home.

Been here twice. Never dissapointed. Really good pizzas, and good service.


User:Michael S.


We've been raving fans of Spinato's for a few years but what happened on Valentine's day, 2014, moved our affinity for this company to a new level. My daughter is serving in the U.S. Air Force, currently stationed in Guam. It's 6,444 miles from Phoenix to Andersen Air Force Base on a tiny island the size of Scottsdale in the middle of the vast Pacific Ocean. She's so far away. There's a giant hole in our hearts from missing her. She knows we love Spinato's pizza, the sauce with it's sweet and savory goodness, the family friendly service and the affordable prices in a time of vast economic uncertainty. It's a little slice of comfort. So, she wanted to surprise us with a gift card to our favorite restaurant but that's a little hard to do from so far away. Spinato's stepped up in a big way. Not only did they sell her a gift card, but they sent one of their managers, with a bouquet of twelve red-heart balloons, to deliver her gift to our doorstep. Spinato's act of service for one of our military members went above and beyond the call of making great pizza. They showed their patriotic spirit by helping an airman reach out with a comfort-food hug to her parents. Thank you Spinato's! Your actions reflect selfless service to others and bring great credit on your company, the United States armed forces and pizza makers all over the world!

My roommate and his family are from Chicago and are huge fans of Spinato's, that's how I was introduced. We used to always get the Hawaiian pizza until we discovered the spaghetti calzone. If you're a fan of carbs and the idea of a pasta-filled calzone sounds appealing, you'll love it! You have to ask for ricotta to be added (in addition to the standard mozzarella) and can add meatballs if you wish. It comes with extra sauce on the side. Very simple, but so delicious! I also like their cannoli, but they reduced the size to about half what they were and didn't reduce the price. I would order them all the time if they were big enough to warrant the higher than normal cost.

There was about a thirty minute wait when we went there Friday night around 7:30. But we weren't in a rush so we didn't mind. There's a little bar in the entrance in case you want to sip on a drink while waiting. Once we were seated, we ordered the thick crust mama spinatos pizza and halved it with spicy Italian. We got the garlic cheesy bread. Both the appetizer and the pizza were delicious! We got the medium sized pizza which was really big for just the two of us so we had a lot to take home. The waiter was wonderful. The food was wonderful. And the environment was great. Would def go back and recommend to others!

I've driven past here a million times to have coffee at True Brew; how have I not stopped in before?! It's smack in the middle of a strip mall-so you'd almost miss it if you didn't know it was there. We went on a Friday night and it was jam packed. We sat out on the patio, which does a great job of disguising it's parking lot with black out shades. A great family vibe, and really tasty thin crust pizza (I had the marguerita pizza..so good)!! Definitely a new fave pizza spot for me.


User:Doug K.


I know, I know, 3 stars only. Sorry folks I come from an Italian family... I believe that the sauce makes the meal. Sorry, but I could barley taste a hint of garlic in the sauce and even that could have been a piece lodged in my tooth from lunch. If you are a sweet sauce non-traditional, Ragu, Papa John's loving type of Americanized pizza type person.....you'll love it!!! But if you dare to go to to the dark side of good old fashioned Italian-American cusine, you'll find yourself, as I did searching for more out of your local pizza shop. On the bright side the place was packed, the ingredients were fresh, and the service was good. I don't want to be to negative or longwinded so I will say only this about the dough, it was average. So if you like sweet sauce, this is the place for you.


User:Tanya C.


This place smeels incredible when you first walk-in. The major plus was that when you ordered, and received your food, (which by the way was friendly service with a smile and not a lengthy wait) it actually tasted as good as it smelled! We will definitely go back for another visit! I love the small, but family friendly environment as well. Everyone seemed to enjoy their jobs there and all of the customers were great, all interacting with perfect strangers. Just a really great vibe! The only thing I would mention is that personally I prefer a more savory or herby flavor in my pizza sauce, and their is very sweet. My husband LOVED IT! I liked it too, but it got to be too sweet for my "buds" after a few bites. AWESOME PLACE THOUGH! check it out.


User:Frank R.


Wow...strongly rivals Crust as the best pizza in Phx/Scottsdale. Sauce is a bit sweet, but crust and cheese make it an incredible combination. Extra crispy is the way to go. This is a must have!


User:Michelle K.


Fast lunch! Tastes WONDERFUL! So much better than Pizza Hut or Dominoes. 16$ for a med pie to split for three at lunch makes it a pretty good deal. Don't have to go cups anymore, just bottles :( Overall, I'll be going back a lot!


User:Scott M.


When I moved into the neighborhood, one of my friends said I had to try Spinato's. So I ordered a few pies for everyone who helped me move. They are not near as cheap as fast food pizza joints, but it's worth the price. While the crust is a little thicker and lacks the crispness of traditional Chicago thin crust, it is fantastic pizza! (For more traditional Chicago thin crust, try Johnnie's on Cave Creek) Sauce is nice and sweet, and they have a large variety of fresh toppings. This place gets busy most nights, and delivery can be an hour or longer during prime pizza hours, so plan ahead. (I haven't had any calzone or pasta dishes, and always gotten delivery or pick-up)


User:Ernie L.


Best pizza I've had in Phoenix


User:Shari B.


This is the best pizza we've found since migrating from Chicago 17 years ago! The staff is amazing - Quality is consistent and prices are fairly reasonable! The Bell Road Location has the best service and is so convenient - as we live in New River - close to NOTHING! LOL Truly recommend this place for Chicago transplants! - THIS is what good food is all about!!!


User:D. M.


Absolutely terrible!! What a waste of money! I cannot for the life of me comprehend why or how anyone can give this pizza a high rating. It's disgusting! It tasted like one of those $1 frozen pizzas you heat up in a microwave. Terrible textured crust, the sauce is lacking true flavor (more like jarred grocery store sauce) and the toppings taste old & rubbery. It was just so sloppy & generic. I also made the mistake of ordering the bruschetta. The bread was all wrong for it first of all and the topping for it wasn't nearly enough for each slice. The first time I've ever been so disappointed in that appetizer anywhere. People of Phoenix....have any of you ever actually had a good slice of REAL PIZZA PIE?? Because these raving reviews leave me feeling so so sorry for your lack of taste.


User:Andrew T.


Disclaimer: I have only tried the pizza. Crispy, thin crust is the best part. The pizza is round, but they cut it in a grid. I don't understand that, and not really sure what all the hubbub is about this place. Sauce is way too sweet.


User:Adam C.


This place is great! A little on the small side if you're dining in, seating is limited, but all in all they have pretty good pizza, decent service, and a cool small Italian family owned restaurant feel. The garlic cheesy bread appetizer is great too, give it a shot!


User:Rick B.


The Mama Spinato's Signiture pizza is the most amazing pizza I have ever had. I don't even put it in the same catagory as regular pizza. We can order peperoni pizza or what ever from any place. But the Mama Spinato's Signiture pizza is speacial, it's like hambergers vs steak. I love pizza but this place takes it to a whole new level. Lucky me there is one by the house and by my work.


User:Marcus N.


this pizza is what i grew up with on the west side of chicago, in a toscano neighborhood.it is the same method and taste as my grand-mother's pizza. nothing this good in phoenix. worth the drive every time.


User:Jenna M.


This is what pizza tastes like in heaven. The pie is divine, calzones are outstanding and the staff make you feel like family. Spinato's is our go-to pizza joint and we have never been disappointed. Definitely want to get there early to avoid the rush.


User:Jay J.


First visit, and just eating at bar on my own. Wanted a speciality pizza but no ham. The bartender said that isn't allowed without "creating your own" pizza option, which would cost more. I asked to talk to a manager. A couple of minutes later, I suggested to the manager it doesn't make sense to have to pay more for just holding one item (I wasn't trying to substitute anything). He agreed but said it is company policy set by the owner and that he is not allowed to override the policy. This is bad policy. I ended up ordering the pizza, had to dig out the ham, and then it got thrown away. Such a waste. The pizza was tasty. I would suggest to the owner to have some flexibility on common sense policy. The manager suggested the possible reason for the policy is the kitchen chef is too busy to deal with these requests. I would suggest that it only takes a split second to see the order "no ham" and would not slow the process down. Not to mention then food would not be wasted. I feel sorry for the employees who have to enforce and explain this excessive policy, as both the bartender and manager said they agreed with my logic. The one star rating is solely for the company policy.


User:Bob R.


Pizza is awesome, period.


User:Alex P.


We ordered this in today at work for everyone and it was amazing. I love good pizza and this was good. The thick crust is awesome and the topping options are great. The prices are good for what you get and they even deliver.


User:Jennifer W.


This restaurant was highly recommended to us - so much so that if we did not like our meal he would reimburse us. No need to... We had a large pizza - pretty good toppings - I don't think the mushrooms were fresh though and the sauce was a little too sweet for my taste. The service was very friendly and we also had a dessert - Apple Spendata (sp) very good. We definitely go back and try something different. We visited for lunch on 12/31/11 - not too busy - yet.......


User:Lauren A.


I'd heard about Spinato's for some time, but never found myself in the neighborhood to stop in and try it...until yesterday...WOW!! I can't comment on the dining-in service, but I definitely have something to say about the pizza! Some say it's hard to mess up a pizza, and other say pizza preferences are personal. What I loved about the pizza here was that the sauce was not too salty, not too sweet, and not too tomatoe-y/out of a can tasting. It was perfect! The cheese also quality and aplenty. I haaaaate when places skimp on the cheese. The toppings were great and also not sparse. The pizza didn't have an inch of grease on it and didn't have that soggy middle bottom like some places leave their pizzas. The crust was thin enough so that you didn't feel like you might as well have ordered a bread basket, but not so thin that you felt like you were eating off a cracker. As Chicagoans, we had the Chicago pizza...fantastic!!! I can't wait to come back here again and try their other pizzas and calzones. So happy I was introduced to the greatness that is Spinato's!!


User:Chris S.


Love this place! A real taste of Chicago. Awesome pizza and calzones! Servers are weird but who cares when I get such oh delicious italian food, oh and they have Peroni on tap! My kind of place!


User:Brian R.


If you want a great family restaurant when you visit Phoenix offering superior pizza and salad, visit Spinatos. Great sauce, Great atmosphere, and very economical for a family. Highly recommend


User:Nicolette D.


Spinato's is my GO TO place for pizza. Their pizza, calzones... well really just about anything on the menu is fabulous. Their homemade sauce is to die for and unique to itself. I have dined in and the ambiance is great. Taken out, when frankly, I just want to get home and relax, with my favorite comfort food. I have tried most things on the menu and never had a bad taste experience. I appreciate the fact, that even though they have multiple locations, they are locally owned so I am supporting MY local business' economy. After enjoying Spinatos' for the past 14 years, this is the only pizza WORTHY of eating cold the next day.


User:Nek O.


I eat here on occasion and consistently very good food and service. Be prepared to wait 30 or so minutes as this place is popular, and rightly so. There's a new menu so if you haven't eaten here in a while check it out. Also, I bought a jar of sauce to take home so we'll see if its as good as the fresh.


User:Jowita K.


Probably the best place for pizza and calzones. I love the atmosphere and service here. Its very mom & pop, but professional and fun at the same time. I've taken my friends and family here, and both groups are quite critical in their own way... but they LOVED the place. My best friend Anthony is from NM and seriously comes to visit me because of our frequent visits to Spinatos - not to see me. Obsessed with the spinach calzones. Joey is my favorite server. the riesling is divine. A+


User:Monica O.


Went with a friend on a sat afternoon and we were in the mood for pizza and he suggested Spinato's, mainly because it's his fav pizza joint and I'm willing to try new things, so why not. We got their and the place wasn't very busy, and was seated right away. I ordered a salad, I didn't realize until after I ordered it how huge they are and split with my friend, it was very fresh and good! We ordered a med Super Six, let me tell you, best pizza crust ever!!! It was so delish! Look forward to another trip back and work my way through the menu!


User:B B.


We have out of state family that we take here as the place to go and try. Everyone just LOVES this place. My family loves it too.... thin crust to thick ..... doesnt matter what you order here it is always AMAZING! never had bad service Very Happy!!!!


User:Albert H.


Pizza was much better than I remembered. Crust came out quite well with just enough crispness and golden color. Cheese was flavorful, and diced tomatoes were sweet and delicious. Side of sauce is necessary here because it is so good. Don't forget to try the Calzones. I had a small hiccup with service, but otherwise this was a great dining experience and the food is consistently good.


User:Stefanie N.


We got the signature pizza which consists of fresh spinach, tomatoes, and garlic and it was fantastic. the sauce was flavorful, the pizza was seasoned perfectly and i have to say that i was impressed! the only thing i may do differently for next time is to ask for the pizza well done.... i usually do this to all pizzas just forgot this time. We also had it delivered, during the NBA playoffs, and it arrived in about 35 minutes, right at half time; so timing was perfect!! It showed up hot and delicious which says a lot about their delivery service. Well done, I def recommend to others.


User:Annie W.


Let me just say, don't waste your time going elsewhere. I especially enjoy sausage, pepperoni with fresh basil.


User:Troy N.


Very good pizza they put a nice family touch on there pies. The red sauce is a little to sweet but good. They have a awesome spinach style pizza which is great and a Italian beef calzone is worth a try


User:Jennifer V.


The pizza here is delicious! Not as greasy like other places. The cheesy bread sticks with marinara sauce is so amazing. This is one of my favorite places to have pizza. Service is great.


User:Justin D.


Ive only eaten here once but it was amazing!! The service was fast and friendly and the food was delicious. I will find my way back here for sure.


User:Tom S.


First time there and was impressed. A couple craft beers on the menu and some decent wines. We were seated immediately on a Friday night. The staff is impeccable and attentive. The appetizer of bruschetta came quickly. Also had a few meatballs. At .89 cents a piece they are steal and very good. The bruschetta was fresh and perfect. It's a big plate. You can read a hundred reviews that says the pizza is excellent. It is. Loaded up on a semi-thin crust, it is delicious. The sauce is sweet but not overpowering. The pizza to try however is not on the menu. It is a creation by the bartender and a frequent patron. They call it "The Super Dickey" and it is incredible. We were offered a slice and seriously fought over the last morsel . It is a meatball/ ricotta/sweet pepper/onion pizza that with their homemade crust and sauce melts in you mouth. Ask for it. My only complaint was that it was abnormally loud in the small place. Almost to the point we could not hear each other at times. Have plans to return soon. They do not serve any fried foods, no wings, no deep fried mushrooms. They focus on pizza and do an incredible job at it.


User:Roxie B.


Great pizza we love to order takeout!


User:Lindsey D.


I rarely visit a restaurant where the service stands out to the point that it deserves an update to the five star review I already gave it. While visiting Spinatos recently, I couldn't help but notice how very friendly the restaurant staff. Immediately upon entering, we were greeted by a very friendly hostess who showed us to our seats and grabbed us water right away. Then, the second the the hostess left, the waitress appeared and enthusiastically greeted us. The friendly service continued until the moment we left and it left a lasting impression on me. Staff is normally friendly, but the Spinatos staff definitely woke up on the right side of the bed and you can tell that they truly love where they work! Great pizza and great staff! A + Spinatos!


User:E Z.


Great place! Lunch prices are good. Service was fantastic. Pizza is great.


User:Anthony C.


Excellent. I ordered the mama Spinato's "signature" fresh spinach pizza, the individual sized one. To be completely honest, it was awesome. The flavors worked well together it was a good tasty pizza and I only payed like 8$ or so. It was a great deal and I enjoyed myself. good pizza, good people, good times.


User:Andy S.


Absolutely phenomenal pizza. This place has been right down the street from my home for years and I finally got around to trying it. I can't believe I waited so long. Spinato's pizza is very very good. I got delivery so I couldn't say anything about the dinning experience but their product is fantastic. After just one pizza (the Chicago), I can safely say Spinato's is now my go to pizza delivery joint in my neighborhood. I look forward to trying the dine-in experience as well.


User:Bob R.


After reading all of the rave reviews for Spinato's we decided to give it a try. We get pizza for Friday dinner often and I was looking for something better and closer to home. This location is a few blocks off of my normal route, so I put in an online order for two pizzas. Having had fast food places miss online orders in the past, I gave the shop a call to confirm that the order was received and that it would be ready on-time. We had other plans for later in the evening so timing was critical. At the scheduled time I arrived at Spinato's expecting to go in, pick-up two pizzas and leave. No such luck. One of the 'clerks' in the take-out area started pushing buttons and making odd faces at the register. Then he called the other clerk over and the both start mashing buttons and making faces at two registers. Then the short one says, "I'm sorry, I don't have an order for you, I can make it up in about 10 minutes?" Knowing that they normally need 40 minutes to get their pizzas ready, I was looking at undercooked pizza or no pizza. I opted for the second choice and left. KFC for dinner. A half an hour after I was home and finishing the chicken, someone from Spinato's calls and says "We have your pizza waiting". I told the young lady that the call was not appreciated and that I was in the store at the scheduled time and they had no order for me. Then to add insult to injury, 3 hours after that, I get a text telling me that my order was confirmed. Not done . . . My daughter really wanted to try the pizza and thought that the mistake was a one- time thing and we should still try the pizza. OK, we'll get pizza for Saturday. So I run 20 miles each way to pick-up the same order they had lost at one store and picked it up from another location. You can get better pizzas from the grocer's freezer. The crust is flat, no edge, looks like it was runout on a sheeter (machine that rolls out dough). The sauce is tasteless, and just that, canned tomato sauce. The meats were also bland, who would expect that from a sausage and pepperoni pizza? People, this is not good pizza. . . were


User:Vegegirly K.


I basing this rating only on the two types of spinach pizza they have because that is all we have ordered from them. Those pizzas are delicious and absolutely addictive. I usually don't like sweet pizza sauces but their sauce is awesome. I usually don't like spending that much money on pizza (a large spinach is $20) but it is so damn good that they have me wrapped around their finger. Service is good too. We have only ordered take out but they have always been friendly and accurate with their time. We have shown up early before and ordered a beer at the bar while we wait for our pizza. It seems that they have good beer specials most of the time. Delicious pizza and worth every penny!


User:Sam C.


Love Spinato's! Eat it all the time. If you think it's not good you probably ordered wrong. :-) We always order the thick crust with garlic, feta, salami, italian beef and basil. Toppings are ALWAYS plentiful. If you think the sauce is too sweet (which I don't) try adding garlic, feta, even a little sprinkle of salt. This pizza is to die for! Yummy!


User:Rob T.


I really like this place and I must say it's the best pizza I have had West of Chicago. The sauce is on the sweet side, but I like that. It's kid friendly so it's a great casual place to be with family and friends without a pretentious side to it. The lines can be a little long at times but I think it's worth the wait.


User:Vanessa D.


Add me to the Maria fan club. Seriously, I love that chick. Hand to God, if I ever had to fight in a trench, in a war, the first person I would want on my team would be Maria. She's a doll but she might kick your ass. "For sure!" We started with the spaghetti calzone. Yeah, you heard me. They take spaghetti and they stuff it in a calzone. In. A. Cal. Zone. It reminded me of when I was a kind and we would make spaghetti sandwiches. No, I'm not kidding about that. It was delicious and I have dreams about it. They have those really thin metal forks that only pizza places have and mine kept bending the dough was so nice and thick and good. The sauce for the pizza and the calzone is a happy thing. Tangy but sweet, as well. I could eat with we a well bent spoon. The pizza was good but we only got a small due to the calzone. Next time, I want to go with more people and get a bigger one so I can love on the cheese and toppings. Lastly, the sodas come with that really awesome crushed ice that looks like jagged little pellets. To me, that's a clear sign you're in a good pizza joint.


User:Laura R.


Tried it once more since Lucky's closed I have to find a new pizza place. Sigh.... Service is excellent they knew immediately what we ordered last time. We tried the signature pizza this time since its the most popular. The delivery was very quick I admit but the pizza still leaves me looking for a new pizza place. The toppings were all good spinach nice and crispy and then the sauce is good but way too sweet for my taste! It makes me wonder if the secret seasonings have something to do with sugar? Oh well I really tried liking this since its so close but what can a girl do?


User:Jason L.


I'd rather have had DiGiorno!......and I hate DiGiorno. After reading the reviews I figured there was no way we wouldn't like it and the bad reviews were the usual complainers. Let be clear in saying I rarely write a bad review but this one warranted one. We both ordered the personal pan pizza and it was barely enough for my appetite but I didn't want to spend over 10 dollars on a pizza for myself. The sauce was horrible! It was sweet and my taste buds were confused. The server admitted that its a particular taste and the taste was not for her lol. Go figure that the employees don't even like the pizza. I never had a pizza with a sauce that was that sweet. It was very strange. The people who rated this 5 stars must have no taste in food.....sorry. My fiance at one tiny slice and walked out hungry. I finished mine and thought to myself..what the heck am I eating. The one thing I can say is that they comped her meal at least. We didn't ask but they did.


User:Danica L.


This place is the best pizza in Phoenix! There is also one by Tempe Market place. Our favorite is the Homade Italian Sausage and Peperoni pizza! When the Tempe location first opened it was like a hidden gem that no one knew about. Now the wait can be any where from 15 to 45 minutes! The deliver around the mall and you can always call in and pick up! The awesome thing is they know your name when you call in and they keep track of what you have ordered in the past! BEST PIZZA!


User:Morgan C.


While their food is hands down the best in town, I also need to give their employees 5 stars. Tonight I called in my typical pizza order but unfortunately, I was involved in a car accident on my way to pick it up. When I called to let them know I couldn't make it they were more concerned for my personal safety then a pizza that didn't get picked up. About 30 minutes later, I got a phone call from Spinatos asking if I still wanted my pizza because they were going to deliver it for free. While I was already upset with the accident, their kindness overwhelmed me. They had known I had a rough night and wanted to make it better. This may sound dramatic, but in a fast paced city these guys restored my faith in humanity. I will always buy and recommend their food, now I cannot stop raving about a family owned business where their employees take customer service seriously. THANK YOU!!!


User:Dave M.


Nothing new here - except to say the pizza was awesome. I'm a late convert to Spinato's - a neighbor told us of the gluten-free crusts they offer (courtesy of glutenfreecreations.com ). I eat regular crust but some in my family are wheat sensitive, so we hit Spinato's for their GF pizza. The wheat sensitive ones loved the gluten free pizza and this wheat eater loved the regular pizza. If you love excellent pizza, hit Spinato's. spinatospizza.com


User:Robert B.


Came here with friends last night and the experience was awesome. I really enjoy how small Spinato's feels despite how popular they are. It did take us 30 minutes to get seated, but that is to be expected on a Friday night. service was friendly and prompt and the server even gave out preggo friend a t-shirt for her baby which was incredibly unexpected. Two appetizers and a pizza were enough to satisfy the appetite of four people. The food was great like we anticipated so there were no surprises there. On top of all that they had a selection of a few Arizona wines which we definitely took advantage of. In short Spinato's scored high for me in all areas.


User:Wesley F.


This pizza was ordered at my job. Their pizzas are on point. The fennel thin crust pizza was the best pizza I ever have eaten.


User:Ashley S.


So this location is getting 5 starts from me for sure! I've been to the location on 7th street and Bethany. It may be fancier but this little location's food is much better! I like both but if you want the best meal... Go to this location! We got the Super 6 Sicilian style, small. (Happy hour 8 dollars. Everyday Happy Hour with great selections 2-6) and the Antipasto Salad. The salad was so crisp and fresh with tons of great, and quality toppings. The pizza was hot, fresh, soooo crispy (even Sicilian style!) the toppings had tons of flavor and color. It was the best pizza I've had in years! I did not find that to be so at the 7th St. Location. And as usual... Excited to come back sit on their patio when it cools down. It looks so cute! Interior is very cute as well, super small though. That's why Happy Hour was perfect for us. Avoided the rush and extra $$. All in all, I'm super happy I decided to give this location a try! We will be back soon! New favorite pizza!! (Sorry Pizzeria Bianco :( )


User:Jeffrey S.


I had heard rave reviews about the pizza and having grown up in Brooklyn I was practically raised on pizza. I was very disappointed in the pie we had. We purchased the par cooked and finish at home pizza. We followed the instructions and found the pizza to not be up to what we had been expecting. The crust was not firm at all and the pizza had a overly strong oregano smell. I like oregano but this was overpowering. We might try it again but won't be rushing back any time soon.


User:Yasmeen A.


Love the pizza here. The food is fresh. We had the strawberry gorgonzola salad and the spinach was so fresh, the salad dressing had so much flavor. We had pears instead of strawberries, but wish it had green apples instead, it still was an amazing salad. I have been to the North Phoenix and Ahwatukee location and it was great both times. The north Phx location gets busy at night so be prepared to wait.


User:Annette C.


I love this place the service is awesome and very friendly. Everything on the menu is delicious.


User:Ryan J.


It is all about the sauce! I had the Mamma Spinato's pizza and added Italian sausage and it was really good. The sausage gave me texture but not so much flavor, I really could have went without it. Everything else was fresh, and pizza was cooked perfectly. Can't wait to go back and try something else. It's not five stars because price is a factor, it was kinda pricey.


User:Chris H.


I love pizza so much that at one time in my crazy life and opened and owned two pizza restaurants. Of course we all like our preferred style of pizza. New York, New Haven, Chicago, Sicilian....we could go on forever. Spinato's Pizza is perfect for my taste. Almost as good as Ledo's on the University of Maryland campus. First the crust was thin and perfect. (There are other crust options...but I ordered thin.) The sauces was sweet. The cheese had just the right amount of greasiness and the toppings were plentiful. This is NOT crispy crust brick oven pizza...this is great loaded with toppings pizza. I have now found my favorite pizza place in Phoenix (sorry Oregeno's!) and I will be back.


User:Mike K.


I've eaten their pizza a number of times, and will probably again. Mainly because the location is close (any port in the storm) and another couple we dine with regularly, who do not know really GOOD Chicago pizza, like it. My wife says this location seems much dirtier than their new location on 7th St, but it could be that the new location is just that: new. Their pizza is OK, but nothing memorable. I've been served it under-cooked and over-cooked. The consistency of their oven workers leaves much to be desired. Their ingredients are nothing special and the crust is just OK. Every time I eat this pizza, I realize just how much better Salernos Pizza on Guadalupe Rd & Recker Rd. in Gilbert really is. Salernos is REAL Chicago pizza. I think I'll head over there tonight.


User:Jo'el J.


Great food and great service! Every pizza and pasta we have had is amazing. The sweet sauce on the pizza is like nothing we have ever had. Maria is one of the best waitress. Spinatos is definitely a must try!


User:Estee A.


I really dig This place :))) I come in - sit @the bar and am so comfy and know things are about to be so good. This is one of my go to places when i need to forget my day and just relax. The food is yummy and there is no place like it i have found in the Valley. Is it traditional - No. Is it tasty and awesome YES. I got introduced to spinato"s through my bestie and have never turned back :) now first do not miss the cheesy garlic bread - usually cheesy bread is a filler - here with a trio of Meatballs in the Awesome Vodka Sauce it is a Meal! (both on the Happy Hr menu) it is THE BEST CHEESY BREAD IN TOWN! With that said... The Pizza is Great! I love the Traditional veggie or Nicole's special - BUT KNOW ALLLLL THE PIZZA IS AMAZING! now if your not a Thin Crust person - you just let them know and they can do your pizza Deep Dish Chicago Style - also AMAZING. I prefer the Vodka Sauce always FYI :))) The Entire Menu is fun and tasty - so many not miss"s like the spaghetti calzone and the meatball sub - or the crazy fun salads and yummy cannoli"s - and do not miss WINE WEDNESDAY! So Yeah i really like this place :) so will you! Why 4 stars not 5 - nothing to do with the food - i do wish they would deliver to my house :/ they will deliver to business by me but not my house. Second- they took away Diet Dr.pepper - not cool. WE ALL WANT IT BACK. :)


User:Lois R.


This was the best pizza I've had since moving to the north valley in the last year and a half. I have finally found my pizza place. I've tried them all, and nothing even comes close. Everything about it was wonderful...especially the crust. It was PERFECT!

Best pizza I've had IN ARIZONA. PERIOD. HANDS DOWN. As a girl born & raised in the Midwest, I'm accustomed to good pizza....good Chicago-style pizza that is: Hearty sauce and thick crust. So imagine my dismay upon relocating to AZ & being inundated with piddly thin crust pizza everywhere (like having pizza toppings on a Saltine cracker IMO) with weak sauce. Luckily that's not the case with Spinatos! The Sicilian style pizza is exquisite. The crust is thick, the sauce is robust & sweet, and the cheese is pure perfection. They add spices on top and it really enhances the flavor! Anytime I venture out & try a different pizza place I wind up disappointed & compare it (unfavorably) to Spinatos. Well, I'm DONE trying new/different pizza joints. Screw variety, Spinatos is the spice of life!


User:Marian R.


Ok we came here after going to the location in PHX 2 weeks ago. We had a cheese pizza for the kids and a chicken cheese pizza. The pizzas were just as good as our last experience! I am only giving 4 stars because they do not have chicken wings or the ding dongs!! Both were amazing!


User:Kimberly M.


I go to Spinato's at least once a week. Usually get it to go. However on a Saturday afternoon we went by and ate. We had their pizza special . We were able to get 2 of the small specialty pizzas for $8 each. That means the Super Six for my boyfriend and I. His 10 year old got the all meat pizza. It s a very good deal and value. The wait staff is attentive and made sure we had everything we needed. The place for a Saturday afternoon was quite busy but it still had a relaxed feel. Our pizza was delicious and we managed to have enough to take home from both of the pizzas. Spinatos is the best pizza in my book.

It was our 5th Anniversary and we were all set to go to Grimaldis in Peoria. We got there and found out that there was an hour and a half wait. Forget that! I talked my wife into coming down here to Spinatos. I had gotten a pizza from here a week or so ago and it was pretty delicious. We drove down here and decided to eat here. We walked in and were seated outside on the patio right away. We went with a Greek Salad and a medium pizza with pepperoni and garlic. Pepsi products to drink. Here is how the food tasted................... Greek Salad- We got the "entree" sized salad and it was plenty for the two of us. This thing was packed with lettuce, feta, tons of split olives, pepperocinis, onions etc. We each had about 2 plate fulls worth. Their dressing is delicious. Creamy but not layered on heavy. It was a great salad. Pepperoni and Garlic Pizza- My last pizza from here was for pickup. It was a bit soggy when I got it. When you eat in, it turned out to be much better. Still a tiny bit greasy, but still delicious. Our pizza was cooked proper with a little brown on the cheese. Their sauce is fantastic and the pepperoni and garlic was a great combo. Their sauce is a tad sweet but not too much so. A medium pizza is perfect for two people. Its a great Chicago thin crust. I definitely want to try out some of their other offerings. The reason I am giving this 5 stars though is because of the service! The hostess was great, our waitress was on point and when we were leaving, everyone wished us a great evening and thanked us for our business. Speaking of that..........while we were waiting for our check, an older gentleman came walking around asking tables how everything was. It turns out that it was the OG himself...Ken Spinato! The guy who started this place back in the 70s. We chatted for awhile and got into a good conversation about our move from San Diego and how we were going to go to Grimaldis but came here instead. He was impressed that we had driven from Surprise to come here. We had a great conversation about pizza, their sauce, Phoenix in general etc. It was a great way to end the night. I'll be honest...Grimaldis is still my favorite pizza in the Phoenix area, but Spinatos is definitely creeping up the ladder. Definitely the best Chicago style thin crust I have ever had, plus the service and overall friendliness of ALL the employees I have encountered will keep me and the family coming back! I can definitely see why they are a Phoenix institution and why people love them so much. It was a great 5th anniversary and I'm glad we spent it eating dinner here at Spinatos!

This place is great! Great service every time. They have an awesome spaghetti calzone we all like. Our new Friday night family dinner go to.


User:Danielle G.


NOM NOM NOM, the greatest pizza in phoenix Forsure! I stick with the classic pepperoni and cheese, but the ingredients are fresh and the sauce is out of this world! I can't find anything like it. I've never eaten on location, always had delivery. You know this place is good when there usually is a 45-1:30 minute wait. Now that I've finally read other reviews on this place...it looks like I'm going to have to be stopping in!


User:X X.


My favorite pizza place. ALWAYS order your pizza extra crispy it makes it perfect and adds that extra crisp with all those fresh vegetables. I love da Greek it's the perfect pizza for a vegetarian.


User:Ronda W.


We go weekly on Friday or Saturdays to see Maria and eat meatballs. They are the best but how Maria takes care of us is so personal. We love her!


User:Laura S.


Our Da Greek pizza was among the best pizza I've had. We dined outside at lunch time on a recent Tuesday. We had the outdoor patio to ourselves, while another party dined inside.


User:Austin R.


Came by Spinato's while on a trip down to Phoenix by way of Yelp reviews. As I'm from Chicago I have a discerning palette for pizza (not a snob by any means I just like good pizza!) but it was a great choice! The Za was really tasty very similar to what I'd get in the Chi. Of course I opted for the thin crust Chicago (plus artichoke hearts), the toppings were fresh, sauce zesty, and the crust was buttery and soft yet semi-crispy (due to the amount of veg). As a result the only advice that I would offer up would be if you're getting a pie with veggies to get it a little well done to ensure a crispy crust (if that's your thing). I had came to the restaurant at around 2:30 in the afternoon so it wasn't very busy but with that said Victoria (my server) was very attentive and offered me great customer service! All in all I would say if you enjoy good thin crust pizza this spot will not let you down!


User:Leah F.


I'm a little disappointed growing up here I have many great memories of eating at this location and it's always been the best pizza out there in my opinion . But things have changed, Now with that being said I think part of the problem is that the ovens they use for take out are completely separate than the ones in dine in ,which I can tell the difference in the pizza in the dine in area is alway amazing !!!! Take out from here is just so so. I really think the Glendale location is best now they are always 100% consistent in flavor of their special sweet sauce oh that is the best part after all of this place :) I have not tried their dessert in all the years I have been one here but they look really good . If you are looking for something tasty and different than a normal pizza this is the place to try.


User:Frank M.


Some people like dessert with their meal. The marinara and pizza sauces (if they're not the same) at Spinatos have enough sugar in them to give you cavities after one meal. The environment was appealing but loud, until about 7:30 pm on the Saturday we went - looks like they mainly appeal to the early diners with a sweet tooth... Seriously, for good, soul comforting and Savory pizza go to Bianco, The Parlor, Oreganos, Grimaldi's, or even Ray's.


User:Jimmy U.


Best Pizza in Arizona! IMHO. The Super-Six Pizza can't be beat. I've not tried the other dishes because the pizza is so good.


User:Mark R.


This place has become one of my new Chicago style Pizza places in this area. Been driving past this restaurant for way too long and finally decided to stop in and give them a visit. They have a pretty good selection of many of the Windy City's mouth watering favorites. Inside is cozy and decorated with a traditional pizza parlor theme. There is also a nice patio outside for when the weather is enjoyable. Perfect during the nicer times of the year. Their menu here consist of Appetizers, Salads, Baked Sandwiches, Pastas and plenty of Pizzas and Calzones. If you leave here hungry you are in big trouble. We always have a good portion of leftover pizza to bring home. Great for a midnight snack or when you have those late night munchies. Extremely friendly service. They will let you order your pizza and split it right down the middle. You can go crazy with two totally different kinds. They put a small line of sauce that shows you where it changes. Nice! So far we have tried a 14" Chicago on one side and the Combo version on the other. Came back a few weeks later and did a 14" half Canadian with Nicole's Favorite on the other side. Great flavors with some really tasty ingredients. The pizza sauce here is a Chicago recipe and sweeter than what you would get at a NY pizza joint. So get ready and don't be surprised. Can't wait to try out their Italian Beef Sandwich and maybe a Chicago Steak Calzone. They even have Dessert. Saw the Cannolis last time but had no more room and was ready to explode. Bring the family and friends. They will make you feel right at home. Get the thin crust so you can eat more without getting filled up. They also have thick crust for you dough lovers out there. PIZZA TIME! 4.25 STARS

My first time here after my husband and several friends talk about it all the time. Happened to come during Happy Hour. Ordered the Strawberry Gorgonzola salad, breadsticks with cheese, and small Mama's Special pizza. My husband also got food. Everything was beyond amazing! Hot, delicious cheesebread. The pizza was large enough to fill me up eating half, but I also could've polished it off. For the price, there was no sence in sharing! The salad was entree size, but definitely added another level to the meal and was great for appetizer sharing. The food will have me coming back, for sure, but our waitress Maria will have me loyal to this location. Friendly, funny and full of life, she sold us on the experience. There's no doubt she loves her job, jet employer, and most importantly, her customers. As we enjoyed our meal several other patrons were seated and Maria wound up with table after table of regulars. Seriously felt like we could end up part of the Spinatos Family!


User:Donna M.


I went here for the first time on Sunday. I got the gluten free pizza and it was absolutely the best GF crust I've tasted. They get it from the Gluten Free Creations Bakery which is local. It is seasoned with rosemary and so delicious! Prices were reasonable, staff was very friendly and I would certainly recommend it and will definitely become a regular customer.


User:Ramy D.


So we were in AZ for a graduation party and when you have horrible hotel room services, usually pizza for deliver will do the job (most of the time). We got lucky and just happen to be a good, fair pizzeria joint in town that will deliver to our hotel. I decide to order one of their pies. I of course as always make my own pizza: Meat lover Add Onion extra sauces well done thats all she wrote, no seriously the lady took my order and thats all she wrote (= Pizza arrived on time, fresh, and one sexy looking pie. Wow. true pizza meaning thin crust and made like the customer ordered (me). My wife and sister in law were a little full from the horrible room service because they just could not wait for better food. Omg they were all over my pizza. Luckily I got a 16'' large and it was just enough for everyone to eat and share. I was happy and if I am ever in town i'd order from them again. The customer services had a little New york attitude (rude and fast) but its okay it was all worth it.


User:John C.


Hands down the best delivery we have found in this area. Sometimes it takes closer to an hour and a half to deliver. That tells you how awesome they are. Never had a bad pie from these guys!


User:Brandon S.


Everyone loves pizza and this place does it right! My favourite dishes to recommend are the spaghetti calzone and the bruschetta.


User:annie m.


I LOVE Spinatos. The pizzas are delicious and they have peroni on tap. There aren't many better ways to spend a hot Sunday afternoon in Phoenix. Highly recommend.


User:Maria C.


We found Spinatos the day we moved to the 16 St. And Bell area. Amazing pizza! I was hooked the first time we ordered.


User:Jason R.


We made a take-out order for 4 people based on a recommendation. The food was sublime. Easily if I had made this review then, I would have given them 5 stars. We had 2 calzones with pesto sauce, anti-pasta salad, spaghetti and meatballs, and the Chicago pizza. Everything was amazing. Last week we made the same order but in larger portions, hoping for left over to eat the next day. It was a completely different experience. Everything was sub par. Our hopes of finally finding a consistently amazing Italian restaurant had been shattered. We didn't even finish our food and through what was left out. I can't say we'll be back. It's a long drive, and too expensive for the chance to be so badly disappointed again. I would have given less stars if not for the first experience. I at least know that they have the potential for excellence, if not the guarantee.


User:Tom L.


I tried the Toasted Da Vinci sandwich yesterday and it was outstanding. One of the best sub sandwiches in town. Toasted bun, warm but not too hot, and delicious meat and cheese. I have many friends who worship Spinato's and now I know why. Excellent!


User:Bonnie K.


Great food! Pizza and Spaghetti Calzone was amazing! Meatballs were really flavorful and reminded me of my grandmas. We will be back - thank you so much Spinatos.


User:Amy K.


After we moved to Phoenix we searched for restaurants that had birthday deals. Spinato's sent us a birthday coupon so we figured we've give it a try. My husband and I fell in love with the pizza, environment and that wonderful vodka cream sauce! We loved that the owner walked around visiting with the customers, it is a very homely environment. They even gave our pregnant friend a baby onesie. We love going back for pizza and meatballs, and of course buying a jar of the vodka cream sauce to take home. I highly recommend!


User:Sara M.


Good pizza, awesome spaghetti calzones and friendly service. We always get our pizzas extra crispy and we love it. We're a fan of Spinato's!


User:Jennifer A.


This place is great. I have always just gotten to-go but they are almost always packed inside so i assume the service is great too. Everyone that caters to the pick-up side has always been wonderful. Calzones are really good, though i feel like they changed their pepperoni in the past year as something seems to have changed. Either way it's still really good.


User:Nicole R.


I am pretty picky about sauce and usually opt for a olive oil sauce at most restaurants but I decided to give it a go here from the raving reviews of their sauce, and wow! It was delicious and the only pizza place I get sauce added on. The crust is cooked perfectly. My favorite item would have to be the spaghetti calzone- I get it with the vodka sauce & the meatballs added in. So delicious and always a good way to end a long day! It's my go to pizza joint.


User:Kelly R.


We stopped here after running some errands last night (Sunday). Wow is all I can say, we showed up kinda late (around 7:30 isn), which I was worried about getting in but got seated right away. The server was right over and told us the specials - beer specials too ($12 for a pitcher of blue moon!). The service was awesome. He didn't over bug and was very nice. It was a nice quiet evening filled with mouth watering pizza and beer. Can't ask for a better sunday night (oh and football was on the tv in the bar)......


User:Darryl C.


Heard all the talk about the great food and it was average. Pizza was ok and spagetti was bland with sweet sauce. I'll try again but not right away.


User:Will S.


THE BEST PIZZA! First timer and was blown away. Get the "Get Meaty" pizza. Superb!!! Great service, nice warming environment, friendly staff, overall just a great place to eat and have a good time with family and friends.


User:Shawn O.


I've been a regular for a long time now, and I have never had a bad meal! The food is great and so is the staff. Try the spaghetti calzone, yup it's amazing!


User:Joann C.


Spaghetti Calzone - one of the best inventions ever! Combining a calzone crust with spaghetti is magic. The spaghetti sauce is a bit sweeter which I love. The pizza is good though I still prefer Oregano's. I am a big fan of Spinato's sauce. They sell it and it's great to take home and put on your own food. The place is a bit small and there can be a wait during peak hours but that's true for any good place in town. Molly was our wait person (not sure if she's still there) and she's friendly and provided great service.


User:Mia W.


Love this place! I go to this location as well as the one on 7th street. No matter the location or time I go, I get amazing, friendly service. It feels more like eating with family at home then going out to eat. My favorite is their spinach pizza, but every dish I have had bursts with flavor. If you get a chance to go make sure to save room for dessert because holy cannoli!


User:Court S.


Spinato's is a a decent sized restaurant. The food is very good. The staff there is super friendly. The waitress I had was very open and comfortable in making a conversation with you.


User:Jose F.


Great food. Reasonable prices. Maria was an awesome server. I highly recommend you make reservations, especially on the weekends. This place can accommodate groups, but the wait will be considerable on the weekends.


User:s s.


I rate three basic things in every restaurant: service, food and ambiance. I give Spinato's a full score under every category. 1. Service was very nice. Waitress was very knowledgable and give good suggestions. 2. Food was way better than what we expected. It was hands down the best pizza we have eaten in Phoenix. And again it goes to waitress knowledge and help. She suggested what size pizza to order. We decided to order large pizza but she suggested two small pizzas as they were on a happy hour special price. In that way we got more pizza for price and more variety as we ordered two different pizzas. 3. Ambiance was very nice. We decided to sit on their patio and it was perfect for an early spring evening in phoenix. 4. Price not bad at all. I recommend this restaurant in every way.


User:Rob R.


Everytime i have had take out. Pizza is always good. Its well worth the extra money for a decent pie.


User:Alisa J.


Service was great. Very attentive. Food was good, but a bit pricier than expected. Dinning area cramped.


User:Angela E.


This place is always busy and always friendly. The pizza is awesome!! Thanks for being great!


User:Kristy S.


Two words. Spaghetti. Calzone. You'll thank me later! Opt for meatballs and ricotta! The pizza/spaghetti sauce is slightly sweet. Love it. We also get the specialty spinach pizza-lots of garlic, lots of flavor. This place is small and gets busy. Kinda have to plan ahead when ordering for takeout at peak hours or when dinning too. One of the places we regular


User:Linda C.


I like trying new pizza joints, but by far, Spinatto's is the best pizza I've ever had. I've turned so many people onto Spinato's that I should get a kickback. Every time I come to Phoenix it's where I want to go eat. If you like thin crust pizza with a sweeter sauce, this is the pizza for you. It's so good that it's hard to stop eating it. I even took a pizza back to Tucson with me - how crazy is that?! The service is always spectacular; the employees always come across as they love their job. I've been to every Spinato's in the valley and have had the same great service in every store. I even bought a jar of their pizza sauce - it was worth the price. I've tried a few of the other appetizers and salads; they were good, but why waste stomach space?


User:Laura P.


As far as customer service, they receive an A+. Wonderful staff. Although, the food is not my cup of tea. I ordered a side caesar to begin and a pepperoni calzone. The caesar dressing was very fishy. The pizza sauce was way too sweet.


User:Lisa C.


We drive a bit from the office to come here for lunch but it is worth the trip. Service is warm, friendly and efficient. I can't say enough about the folks that work here. The Margherita pizza has such a delicious flavor, the tomato and basil on top is fresh and the thin crust is crisp and tasty. I tried the thick crust once and enjoyed it too but the thin is my favorite. I've tried the Greek pizza too and thought it was really good. Spaghetti calzone with ricotta and marinara sauce is pure carb heaven. They top the calzone with their sauce and it is a little on the sweet side. I normally prefer a tangy or spicy sauce but unless you absolutely hate a sweeter sauce, you won't be disappointed. The small easily serves 2 people. Portions are good, prices are great, parking is great, but the neighborhood is a little run down and sketchy. If you enjoy and are open to different types of pizza, don't skip Spinato's.


User:Em J.


The pizza here, phenomenal! They have a sweeter marinara sauce, it's to die for. Their appetizer 3 meatballs in vodka cream sauce, ahh melt in your mouth amazing. I tried the spaghetti calzone in vodka cream sauce this last time, and it was great! Service is always good. If it's busy, which it always is, food can take a little while to come out, but it's worth it!! Oh and you get a free canoli on your birthday :)


User:Vinnie Y.


heard alot of great things about this place. I was disappointed. The place looks very nice, the staff is very friendly. Customer service is great. Canoli was very good. Reason for the 2 star is the sauce it is very sugary. In my opinion sauce should not taste like this. I cant eat anything here that has sauce. The pizza is very overated, highly disappointed. For pizza rays, sardellas are better options.


User:Amy D.


Mmmmm. Pizza just like I remember back home in Illinois!!! Love it! Best ive had in AZ!


User:Crystal K.


Their pizza is great! Their sauce has a sweetness to it that most don't. The staff is really friendly and the place is pretty quaint. My husbamd loves the Mamma' Calzone and their Get Meaty pizza is my favorite. All in all its a great spot to try!!


User:Christopher M.


Shout out to the guy on Trip Advisor who said the L'Italiana here is the best pizza in Northern Phoenix...I don't live locally, but this was wonderful advice and was well worth going a few miles out of the way for. Antipasto salad was good, if not standard. But man, that pizza. Really incredible.


User:Danielle T.


Awesome pizza and service. They brought it right to our hotel and we're super friendly. Loved the garlic bread too!


User:Tony B.


Always great friendly service when dining in or taking out. They specialize in thin crust pizzas and The Get Meaty is my favorite. The menu is extensive and you can do half and half specialty pies to keep things interesting. I really enjoy the family owned vibe. Highly recommend and I would eat here again!


User:Bill B.


First time ordering pizza and salads. All I can say is 'excellent'. You are really missing out if you don't try their pizza. Love it.


User:Pamela W.


Nice, mellow atmosphere. We had the pear and Pecan salad which was fresh and delicious. The pizza was great--fresh ingredients and arrived hot. Friendly staff.


User:Faith T.


Love this place. The sauce has a sweet taste and a little different from the norm. They have pretty good salads but let's face it. You come here for the carbs. Love their pizza and also the spaghetti with homemade meatballs. Such great service consistently. My husband and I love to come here and definitely do at least once a week. Also, the Apple serenata is life. Enjoy it!


User:Renae R.


Yum yum yum! Who doesn't love a spaghetti calzone? Carb overload that will put you in a delightful carb coma! The service is a little hit or miss, but overall a wonderful place to eat.


User:Heather W.


Easily the best pizza I have had in Phoenix, love the thin crust pizza here as well as the caprese salad. Quick service, like the outdoor seating, even if it is a little crowded.


User:John B.


The pizza is really good with wine.


User:Ali S.


Mediocre pizza. The crust is thin, but not crispy or tasty at all. The sauce is overly sweet. The cheese tastes like government surplus cheese used in school cafeterias. The pepperoni is bland and tasteless. Overall very average, maybe even below average pizza. Maybe the calzones are better. Phoenix, this is what you call good pizza? The 3-star rating is being nice.


User:Jafar M.


Simply whoa. This place is my new Italian restaurant. Everything tastes top notch and worth every penny! The pizza was one of the greatest ive ever had. And I LOVE pizza. My wife got the pasta, which I would never buy eating out, but it was really delicious. Definitely a go back for very soon.

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.


User:Margie D.


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!


User:Tim H.


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.


User:Donna B.


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.


User:Caroline T.


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.


User:Sky P.


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!


User:Dwayne O.


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.


User:Melissa B.


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.


User:Michael M.


This experience was amazing!! Great Chicago style pizza and delicious wine !! Great company and awesome scenery!


User:Meg H.


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 pizza was ordered at my job. Their pizzas are on point. The fennel thin crust pizza was the best pizza I ever have eaten.


User:Ashley S.


So this location is getting 5 starts from me for sure! I've been to the location on 7th street and Bethany. It may be fancier but this little location's food is much better! I like both but if you want the best meal... Go to this location! We got the Super 6 Sicilian style, small. (Happy hour 8 dollars. Everyday Happy Hour with great selections 2-6) and the Antipasto Salad. The salad was so crisp and fresh with tons of great, and quality toppings. The pizza was hot, fresh, soooo crispy (even Sicilian style!) the toppings had tons of flavor and color. It was the best pizza I've had in years! I did not find that to be so at the 7th St. Location. And as usual... Excited to come back sit on their patio when it cools down. It looks so cute! Interior is very cute as well, super small though. That's why Happy Hour was perfect for us. Avoided the rush and extra $$. All in all, I'm super happy I decided to give this location a try! We will be back soon! New favorite pizza!! (Sorry Pizzeria Bianco :( )

I had heard rave reviews about the pizza and having grown up in Brooklyn I was practically raised on pizza. I was very disappointed in the pie we had. We purchased the par cooked and finish at home pizza. We followed the instructions and found the pizza to not be up to what we had been expecting. The crust was not firm at all and the pizza had a overly strong oregano smell. I like oregano but this was overpowering. We might try it again but won't be rushing back any time soon.


User:Yasmeen A.


Love the pizza here. The food is fresh. We had the strawberry gorgonzola salad and the spinach was so fresh, the salad dressing had so much flavor. We had pears instead of strawberries, but wish it had green apples instead, it still was an amazing salad. I have been to the North Phoenix and Ahwatukee location and it was great both times. The north Phx location gets busy at night so be prepared to wait.


User:Annette C.


I love this place the service is awesome and very friendly. Everything on the menu is delicious.


User:Ryan J.


It is all about the sauce! I had the Mamma Spinato's pizza and added Italian sausage and it was really good. The sausage gave me texture but not so much flavor, I really could have went without it. Everything else was fresh, and pizza was cooked perfectly. Can't wait to go back and try something else. It's not five stars because price is a factor, it was kinda pricey.


User:Chris H.


I love pizza so much that at one time in my crazy life and opened and owned two pizza restaurants. Of course we all like our preferred style of pizza. New York, New Haven, Chicago, Sicilian....we could go on forever. Spinato's Pizza is perfect for my taste. Almost as good as Ledo's on the University of Maryland campus. First the crust was thin and perfect. (There are other crust options...but I ordered thin.) The sauces was sweet. The cheese had just the right amount of greasiness and the toppings were plentiful. This is NOT crispy crust brick oven pizza...this is great loaded with toppings pizza. I have now found my favorite pizza place in Phoenix (sorry Oregeno's!) and I will be back.


User:Mike K.


I've eaten their pizza a number of times, and will probably again. Mainly because the location is close (any port in the storm) and another couple we dine with regularly, who do not know really GOOD Chicago pizza, like it. My wife says this location seems much dirtier than their new location on 7th St, but it could be that the new location is just that: new. Their pizza is OK, but nothing memorable. I've been served it under-cooked and over-cooked. The consistency of their oven workers leaves much to be desired. Their ingredients are nothing special and the crust is just OK. Every time I eat this pizza, I realize just how much better Salernos Pizza on Guadalupe Rd & Recker Rd. in Gilbert really is. Salernos is REAL Chicago pizza. I think I'll head over there tonight.


User:Jo'el J.


Great food and great service! Every pizza and pasta we have had is amazing. The sweet sauce on the pizza is like nothing we have ever had. Maria is one of the best waitress. Spinatos is definitely a must try!


User:Estee A.


I really dig This place :))) I come in - sit @the bar and am so comfy and know things are about to be so good. This is one of my go to places when i need to forget my day and just relax. The food is yummy and there is no place like it i have found in the Valley. Is it traditional - No. Is it tasty and awesome YES. I got introduced to spinato"s through my bestie and have never turned back :) now first do not miss the cheesy garlic bread - usually cheesy bread is a filler - here with a trio of Meatballs in the Awesome Vodka Sauce it is a Meal! (both on the Happy Hr menu) it is THE BEST CHEESY BREAD IN TOWN! With that said... The Pizza is Great! I love the Traditional veggie or Nicole's special - BUT KNOW ALLLLL THE PIZZA IS AMAZING! now if your not a Thin Crust person - you just let them know and they can do your pizza Deep Dish Chicago Style - also AMAZING. I prefer the Vodka Sauce always FYI :))) The Entire Menu is fun and tasty - so many not miss"s like the spaghetti calzone and the meatball sub - or the crazy fun salads and yummy cannoli"s - and do not miss WINE WEDNESDAY! So Yeah i really like this place :) so will you! Why 4 stars not 5 - nothing to do with the food - i do wish they would deliver to my house :/ they will deliver to business by me but not my house. Second- they took away Diet Dr.pepper - not cool. WE ALL WANT IT BACK. :)


User:Lois R.


This was the best pizza I've had since moving to the north valley in the last year and a half. I have finally found my pizza place. I've tried them all, and nothing even comes close. Everything about it was wonderful...especially the crust. It was PERFECT!


User:Nicole R.


I am pretty picky about sauce and usually opt for a olive oil sauce at most restaurants but I decided to give it a go here from the raving reviews of their sauce, and wow! It was delicious and the only pizza place I get sauce added on. The crust is cooked perfectly. My favorite item would have to be the spaghetti calzone- I get it with the vodka sauce & the meatballs added in. So delicious and always a good way to end a long day! It's my go to pizza joint.


User:Tim S.


It was our 5th Anniversary and we were all set to go to Grimaldis in Peoria. We got there and found out that there was an hour and a half wait. Forget that! I talked my wife into coming down here to Spinatos. I had gotten a pizza from here a week or so ago and it was pretty delicious. We drove down here and decided to eat here. We walked in and were seated outside on the patio right away. We went with a Greek Salad and a medium pizza with pepperoni and garlic. Pepsi products to drink. Here is how the food tasted................... Greek Salad- We got the "entree" sized salad and it was plenty for the two of us. This thing was packed with lettuce, feta, tons of split olives, pepperocinis, onions etc. We each had about 2 plate fulls worth. Their dressing is delicious. Creamy but not layered on heavy. It was a great salad. Pepperoni and Garlic Pizza- My last pizza from here was for pickup. It was a bit soggy when I got it. When you eat in, it turned out to be much better. Still a tiny bit greasy, but still delicious. Our pizza was cooked proper with a little brown on the cheese. Their sauce is fantastic and the pepperoni and garlic was a great combo. Their sauce is a tad sweet but not too much so. A medium pizza is perfect for two people. Its a great Chicago thin crust. I definitely want to try out some of their other offerings. The reason I am giving this 5 stars though is because of the service! The hostess was great, our waitress was on point and when we were leaving, everyone wished us a great evening and thanked us for our business. Speaking of that..........while we were waiting for our check, an older gentleman came walking around asking tables how everything was. It turns out that it was the OG himself...Ken Spinato! The guy who started this place back in the 70s. We chatted for awhile and got into a good conversation about our move from San Diego and how we were going to go to Grimaldis but came here instead. He was impressed that we had driven from Surprise to come here. We had a great conversation about pizza, their sauce, Phoenix in general etc. It was a great way to end the night. I'll be honest...Grimaldis is still my favorite pizza in the Phoenix area, but Spinatos is definitely creeping up the ladder. Definitely the best Chicago style thin crust I have ever had, plus the service and overall friendliness of ALL the employees I have encountered will keep me and the family coming back! I can definitely see why they are a Phoenix institution and why people love them so much. It was a great 5th anniversary and I'm glad we spent it eating dinner here at Spinatos!


User:Katey H.


This place is great! Great service every time. They have an awesome spaghetti calzone we all like. Our new Friday night family dinner go to.


User:Danielle G.


NOM NOM NOM, the greatest pizza in phoenix Forsure! I stick with the classic pepperoni and cheese, but the ingredients are fresh and the sauce is out of this world! I can't find anything like it. I've never eaten on location, always had delivery. You know this place is good when there usually is a 45-1:30 minute wait. Now that I've finally read other reviews on this place...it looks like I'm going to have to be stopping in!


User:X X.


My favorite pizza place. ALWAYS order your pizza extra crispy it makes it perfect and adds that extra crisp with all those fresh vegetables. I love da Greek it's the perfect pizza for a vegetarian.


User:Stacey S.


Best pizza I've had IN ARIZONA. PERIOD. HANDS DOWN. As a girl born & raised in the Midwest, I'm accustomed to good pizza....good Chicago-style pizza that is: Hearty sauce and thick crust. So imagine my dismay upon relocating to AZ & being inundated with piddly thin crust pizza everywhere (like having pizza toppings on a Saltine cracker IMO) with weak sauce. Luckily that's not the case with Spinatos! The Sicilian style pizza is exquisite. The crust is thick, the sauce is robust & sweet, and the cheese is pure perfection. They add spices on top and it really enhances the flavor! Anytime I venture out & try a different pizza place I wind up disappointed & compare it (unfavorably) to Spinatos. Well, I'm DONE trying new/different pizza joints. Screw variety, Spinatos is the spice of life!


User:Marian R.


Ok we came here after going to the location in PHX 2 weeks ago. We had a cheese pizza for the kids and a chicken cheese pizza. The pizzas were just as good as our last experience! I am only giving 4 stars because they do not have chicken wings or the ding dongs!! Both were amazing!


User:Kimberly M.


I go to Spinato's at least once a week. Usually get it to go. However on a Saturday afternoon we went by and ate. We had their pizza special . We were able to get 2 of the small specialty pizzas for $8 each. That means the Super Six for my boyfriend and I. His 10 year old got the all meat pizza. It s a very good deal and value. The wait staff is attentive and made sure we had everything we needed. The place for a Saturday afternoon was quite busy but it still had a relaxed feel. Our pizza was delicious and we managed to have enough to take home from both of the pizzas. Spinatos is the best pizza in my book.


User:Ronda W.


We go weekly on Friday or Saturdays to see Maria and eat meatballs. They are the best but how Maria takes care of us is so personal. We love her!


User:Laura S.


Our Da Greek pizza was among the best pizza I've had. We dined outside at lunch time on a recent Tuesday. We had the outdoor patio to ourselves, while another party dined inside.


User:Austin R.


Came by Spinato's while on a trip down to Phoenix by way of Yelp reviews. As I'm from Chicago I have a discerning palette for pizza (not a snob by any means I just like good pizza!) but it was a great choice! The Za was really tasty very similar to what I'd get in the Chi. Of course I opted for the thin crust Chicago (plus artichoke hearts), the toppings were fresh, sauce zesty, and the crust was buttery and soft yet semi-crispy (due to the amount of veg). As a result the only advice that I would offer up would be if you're getting a pie with veggies to get it a little well done to ensure a crispy crust (if that's your thing). I had came to the restaurant at around 2:30 in the afternoon so it wasn't very busy but with that said Victoria (my server) was very attentive and offered me great customer service! All in all I would say if you enjoy good thin crust pizza this spot will not let you down!


User:Leah F.


I'm a little disappointed growing up here I have many great memories of eating at this location and it's always been the best pizza out there in my opinion . But things have changed, Now with that being said I think part of the problem is that the ovens they use for take out are completely separate than the ones in dine in ,which I can tell the difference in the pizza in the dine in area is alway amazing !!!! Take out from here is just so so. I really think the Glendale location is best now they are always 100% consistent in flavor of their special sweet sauce oh that is the best part after all of this place :) I have not tried their dessert in all the years I have been one here but they look really good . If you are looking for something tasty and different than a normal pizza this is the place to try.


User:Frank M.


Some people like dessert with their meal. The marinara and pizza sauces (if they're not the same) at Spinatos have enough sugar in them to give you cavities after one meal. The environment was appealing but loud, until about 7:30 pm on the Saturday we went - looks like they mainly appeal to the early diners with a sweet tooth... Seriously, for good, soul comforting and Savory pizza go to Bianco, The Parlor, Oreganos, Grimaldi's, or even Ray's.


User:Jimmy U.


Best Pizza in Arizona! IMHO. The Super-Six Pizza can't be beat. I've not tried the other dishes because the pizza is so good.


User:Mark R.


This place has become one of my new Chicago style Pizza places in this area. Been driving past this restaurant for way too long and finally decided to stop in and give them a visit. They have a pretty good selection of many of the Windy City's mouth watering favorites. Inside is cozy and decorated with a traditional pizza parlor theme. There is also a nice patio outside for when the weather is enjoyable. Perfect during the nicer times of the year. Their menu here consist of Appetizers, Salads, Baked Sandwiches, Pastas and plenty of Pizzas and Calzones. If you leave here hungry you are in big trouble. We always have a good portion of leftover pizza to bring home. Great for a midnight snack or when you have those late night munchies. Extremely friendly service. They will let you order your pizza and split it right down the middle. You can go crazy with two totally different kinds. They put a small line of sauce that shows you where it changes. Nice! So far we have tried a 14" Chicago on one side and the Combo version on the other. Came back a few weeks later and did a 14" half Canadian with Nicole's Favorite on the other side. Great flavors with some really tasty ingredients. The pizza sauce here is a Chicago recipe and sweeter than what you would get at a NY pizza joint. So get ready and don't be surprised. Can't wait to try out their Italian Beef Sandwich and maybe a Chicago Steak Calzone. They even have Dessert. Saw the Cannolis last time but had no more room and was ready to explode. Bring the family and friends. They will make you feel right at home. Get the thin crust so you can eat more without getting filled up. They also have thick crust for you dough lovers out there. PIZZA TIME! 4.25 STARS


User:Valerie F.


My first time here after my husband and several friends talk about it all the time. Happened to come during Happy Hour. Ordered the Strawberry Gorgonzola salad, breadsticks with cheese, and small Mama's Special pizza. My husband also got food. Everything was beyond amazing! Hot, delicious cheesebread. The pizza was large enough to fill me up eating half, but I also could've polished it off. For the price, there was no sence in sharing! The salad was entree size, but definitely added another level to the meal and was great for appetizer sharing. The food will have me coming back, for sure, but our waitress Maria will have me loyal to this location. Friendly, funny and full of life, she sold us on the experience. There's no doubt she loves her job, jet employer, and most importantly, her customers. As we enjoyed our meal several other patrons were seated and Maria wound up with table after table of regulars. Seriously felt like we could end up part of the Spinatos Family!

So we were in AZ for a graduation party and when you have horrible hotel room services, usually pizza for deliver will do the job (most of the time). We got lucky and just happen to be a good, fair pizzeria joint in town that will deliver to our hotel. I decide to order one of their pies. I of course as always make my own pizza: Meat lover Add Onion extra sauces well done thats all she wrote, no seriously the lady took my order and thats all she wrote (= Pizza arrived on time, fresh, and one sexy looking pie. Wow. true pizza meaning thin crust and made like the customer ordered (me). My wife and sister in law were a little full from the horrible room service because they just could not wait for better food. Omg they were all over my pizza. Luckily I got a 16'' large and it was just enough for everyone to eat and share. I was happy and if I am ever in town i'd order from them again. The customer services had a little New york attitude (rude and fast) but its okay it was all worth it.


User:John C.


Hands down the best delivery we have found in this area. Sometimes it takes closer to an hour and a half to deliver. That tells you how awesome they are. Never had a bad pie from these guys!


User:Brandon S.


Everyone loves pizza and this place does it right! My favourite dishes to recommend are the spaghetti calzone and the bruschetta.


User:annie m.


I LOVE Spinatos. The pizzas are delicious and they have peroni on tap. There aren't many better ways to spend a hot Sunday afternoon in Phoenix. Highly recommend.


User:Maria C.


We found Spinatos the day we moved to the 16 St. And Bell area. Amazing pizza! I was hooked the first time we ordered.


User:Jason R.


We made a take-out order for 4 people based on a recommendation. The food was sublime. Easily if I had made this review then, I would have given them 5 stars. We had 2 calzones with pesto sauce, anti-pasta salad, spaghetti and meatballs, and the Chicago pizza. Everything was amazing. Last week we made the same order but in larger portions, hoping for left over to eat the next day. It was a completely different experience. Everything was sub par. Our hopes of finally finding a consistently amazing Italian restaurant had been shattered. We didn't even finish our food and through what was left out. I can't say we'll be back. It's a long drive, and too expensive for the chance to be so badly disappointed again. I would have given less stars if not for the first experience. I at least know that they have the potential for excellence, if not the guarantee.


User:Tom L.


I tried the Toasted Da Vinci sandwich yesterday and it was outstanding. One of the best sub sandwiches in town. Toasted bun, warm but not too hot, and delicious meat and cheese. I have many friends who worship Spinato's and now I know why. Excellent!


User:Bonnie K.


Great food! Pizza and Spaghetti Calzone was amazing! Meatballs were really flavorful and reminded me of my grandmas. We will be back - thank you so much Spinatos.


User:Donna M.


I went here for the first time on Sunday. I got the gluten free pizza and it was absolutely the best GF crust I've tasted. They get it from the Gluten Free Creations Bakery which is local. It is seasoned with rosemary and so delicious! Prices were reasonable, staff was very friendly and I would certainly recommend it and will definitely become a regular customer.


User:Amy K.


After we moved to Phoenix we searched for restaurants that had birthday deals. Spinato's sent us a birthday coupon so we figured we've give it a try. My husband and I fell in love with the pizza, environment and that wonderful vodka cream sauce! We loved that the owner walked around visiting with the customers, it is a very homely environment. They even gave our pregnant friend a baby onesie. We love going back for pizza and meatballs, and of course buying a jar of the vodka cream sauce to take home. I highly recommend!


User:Sara M.


Good pizza, awesome spaghetti calzones and friendly service. We always get our pizzas extra crispy and we love it. We're a fan of Spinato's!


User:Jennifer A.


This place is great. I have always just gotten to-go but they are almost always packed inside so i assume the service is great too. Everyone that caters to the pick-up side has always been wonderful. Calzones are really good, though i feel like they changed their pepperoni in the past year as something seems to have changed. Either way it's still really good.


User:Darryl C.


Heard all the talk about the great food and it was average. Pizza was ok and spagetti was bland with sweet sauce. I'll try again but not right away.


User:Will S.


THE BEST PIZZA! First timer and was blown away. Get the "Get Meaty" pizza. Superb!!! Great service, nice warming environment, friendly staff, overall just a great place to eat and have a good time with family and friends.


User:Shawn O.


I've been a regular for a long time now, and I have never had a bad meal! The food is great and so is the staff. Try the spaghetti calzone, yup it's amazing!


User:Joann C.


Spaghetti Calzone - one of the best inventions ever! Combining a calzone crust with spaghetti is magic. The spaghetti sauce is a bit sweeter which I love. The pizza is good though I still prefer Oregano's. I am a big fan of Spinato's sauce. They sell it and it's great to take home and put on your own food. The place is a bit small and there can be a wait during peak hours but that's true for any good place in town. Molly was our wait person (not sure if she's still there) and she's friendly and provided great service.


User:Mia W.


Love this place! I go to this location as well as the one on 7th street. No matter the location or time I go, I get amazing, friendly service. It feels more like eating with family at home then going out to eat. My favorite is their spinach pizza, but every dish I have had bursts with flavor. If you get a chance to go make sure to save room for dessert because holy cannoli!


User:Court S.


Spinato's is a a decent sized restaurant. The food is very good. The staff there is super friendly. The waitress I had was very open and comfortable in making a conversation with you.


User:Jose F.


Great food. Reasonable prices. Maria was an awesome server. I highly recommend you make reservations, especially on the weekends. This place can accommodate groups, but the wait will be considerable on the weekends.


User:s s.


I rate three basic things in every restaurant: service, food and ambiance. I give Spinato's a full score under every category. 1. Service was very nice. Waitress was very knowledgable and give good suggestions. 2. Food was way better than what we expected. It was hands down the best pizza we have eaten in Phoenix. And again it goes to waitress knowledge and help. She suggested what size pizza to order. We decided to order large pizza but she suggested two small pizzas as they were on a happy hour special price. In that way we got more pizza for price and more variety as we ordered two different pizzas. 3. Ambiance was very nice. We decided to sit on their patio and it was perfect for an early spring evening in phoenix. 4. Price not bad at all. I recommend this restaurant in every way.


User:Rob R.


Everytime i have had take out. Pizza is always good. Its well worth the extra money for a decent pie.


User:Alisa J.


Service was great. Very attentive. Food was good, but a bit pricier than expected. Dinning area cramped.


User:Linda C.


I like trying new pizza joints, but by far, Spinatto's is the best pizza I've ever had. I've turned so many people onto Spinato's that I should get a kickback. Every time I come to Phoenix it's where I want to go eat. If you like thin crust pizza with a sweeter sauce, this is the pizza for you. It's so good that it's hard to stop eating it. I even took a pizza back to Tucson with me - how crazy is that?! The service is always spectacular; the employees always come across as they love their job. I've been to every Spinato's in the valley and have had the same great service in every store. I even bought a jar of their pizza sauce - it was worth the price. I've tried a few of the other appetizers and salads; they were good, but why waste stomach space?


User:Laura P.


As far as customer service, they receive an A+. Wonderful staff. Although, the food is not my cup of tea. I ordered a side caesar to begin and a pepperoni calzone. The caesar dressing was very fishy. The pizza sauce was way too sweet.


User:Lisa C.


We drive a bit from the office to come here for lunch but it is worth the trip. Service is warm, friendly and efficient. I can't say enough about the folks that work here. The Margherita pizza has such a delicious flavor, the tomato and basil on top is fresh and the thin crust is crisp and tasty. I tried the thick crust once and enjoyed it too but the thin is my favorite. I've tried the Greek pizza too and thought it was really good. Spaghetti calzone with ricotta and marinara sauce is pure carb heaven. They top the calzone with their sauce and it is a little on the sweet side. I normally prefer a tangy or spicy sauce but unless you absolutely hate a sweeter sauce, you won't be disappointed. The small easily serves 2 people. Portions are good, prices are great, parking is great, but the neighborhood is a little run down and sketchy. If you enjoy and are open to different types of pizza, don't skip Spinato's.


User:Em J.


The pizza here, phenomenal! They have a sweeter marinara sauce, it's to die for. Their appetizer 3 meatballs in vodka cream sauce, ahh melt in your mouth amazing. I tried the spaghetti calzone in vodka cream sauce this last time, and it was great! Service is always good. If it's busy, which it always is, food can take a little while to come out, but it's worth it!! Oh and you get a free canoli on your birthday :)


User:Vinnie Y.


heard alot of great things about this place. I was disappointed. The place looks very nice, the staff is very friendly. Customer service is great. Canoli was very good. Reason for the 2 star is the sauce it is very sugary. In my opinion sauce should not taste like this. I cant eat anything here that has sauce. The pizza is very overated, highly disappointed. For pizza rays, sardellas are better options.


User:Amy D.


Mmmmm. Pizza just like I remember back home in Illinois!!! Love it! Best ive had in AZ!


User:John B.


The pizza is really good with wine.


User:Crystal K.


Their pizza is great! Their sauce has a sweetness to it that most don't. The staff is really friendly and the place is pretty quaint. My husbamd loves the Mamma' Calzone and their Get Meaty pizza is my favorite. All in all its a great spot to try!!


User:Angela E.


This place is always busy and always friendly. The pizza is awesome!! Thanks for being great!


User:Kristy S.


Two words. Spaghetti. Calzone. You'll thank me later! Opt for meatballs and ricotta! The pizza/spaghetti sauce is slightly sweet. Love it. We also get the specialty spinach pizza-lots of garlic, lots of flavor. This place is small and gets busy. Kinda have to plan ahead when ordering for takeout at peak hours or when dinning too. One of the places we regular


User:Christopher M.


Shout out to the guy on Trip Advisor who said the L'Italiana here is the best pizza in Northern Phoenix...I don't live locally, but this was wonderful advice and was well worth going a few miles out of the way for. Antipasto salad was good, if not standard. But man, that pizza. Really incredible.


User:Danielle T.


Awesome pizza and service. They brought it right to our hotel and we're super friendly. Loved the garlic bread too!


User:Tony B.


Always great friendly service when dining in or taking out. They specialize in thin crust pizzas and The Get Meaty is my favorite. The menu is extensive and you can do half and half specialty pies to keep things interesting. I really enjoy the family owned vibe. Highly recommend and I would eat here again!


User:Bill B.


First time ordering pizza and salads. All I can say is 'excellent'. You are really missing out if you don't try their pizza. Love it.


User:Pamela W.


Nice, mellow atmosphere. We had the pear and Pecan salad which was fresh and delicious. The pizza was great--fresh ingredients and arrived hot. Friendly staff.


User:Faith T.


Love this place. The sauce has a sweet taste and a little different from the norm. They have pretty good salads but let's face it. You come here for the carbs. Love their pizza and also the spaghetti with homemade meatballs. Such great service consistently. My husband and I love to come here and definitely do at least once a week. Also, the Apple serenata is life. Enjoy it!


User:Renae R.


Yum yum yum! Who doesn't love a spaghetti calzone? Carb overload that will put you in a delightful carb coma! The service is a little hit or miss, but overall a wonderful place to eat.


User:Heather W.


Easily the best pizza I have had in Phoenix, love the thin crust pizza here as well as the caprese salad. Quick service, like the outdoor seating, even if it is a little crowded.


User:Bungle G.


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.


User:Brad W.


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.


User:Jay S.


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.


User:Tricia F.


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!

Mediocre pizza. The crust is thin, but not crispy or tasty at all. The sauce is overly sweet. The cheese tastes like government surplus cheese used in school cafeterias. The pepperoni is bland and tasteless. Overall very average, maybe even below average pizza. Maybe the calzones are better. Phoenix, this is what you call good pizza? The 3-star rating is being nice.

Simply whoa. This place is my new Italian restaurant. Everything tastes top notch and worth every penny! The pizza was one of the greatest ive ever had. And I LOVE pizza. My wife got the pasta, which I would never buy eating out, but it was really delicious. Definitely a go back for very soon.


User:Greg F.


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 fiancé 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!!


User:Mike S.


Still my favorite pizza joint/delivery in Phoenix, but expect delivery on weekend evenings to take 60-75 minutes. Great flippin' pizza though.


User:Steve B.


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


User:April K.


Been here a few times. The service is always great, the gluten free options are plentiful.


User:Matt C.


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.


User:N M.


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.


User:Mindy B.


I never have had a bad experience here. Best GF crust ever!!!


User:Drea C.


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!


User:George J.


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.


User:Aletheia W.


Mama's Signature. Extra crispy. Eat the corners/crust pieces first. and that is allllll you need to know to enjoy Spinatos. The Bell Rd and Tempe locations are the best. Be prepared to wait a bit at this location; they do have great take-out service, which is quick and right next door to the dine in location. One of my fave Valley pizza places.


User:Ervin H.


Great family restaurant with quality pizza and pasta at good prices. The wifey and I usually go here after church, and they have a small and quaint ambience. The service is great while the pizza just tastes amazing. We will definitely be back for my pizza cravings after church!


User:Dane E.


Always great pizza and fast service. This company makes a unique sweet pizza sauce that all of my customers I fed for lunch today really liked. The pizzas are nice sized for the price, and vegetables and meat are spread generously. My take out order was on time and Kimberly greeted me with a smile. I was told by the owner months before that the pizza sauce recipe has been passed down for generations. We'll Done!


User:Scott M.


Pizza was mediocre at best...dry cheese, tasteless crust and an oversweet sauce; maybe it had something to do with the fact that the pizza was stuck in their version of a heat lamp, warmer for 15 minutes while I waited for them to make the marginal, overpriced [strawberry gorgonzola spinach] salad I ordered with my pizza. Seriously, it takes 20 minutes to make a pizza and you can't have the salad ready? I've had better frozen pizza, and $30 for a large cheese pizza and salad, I felt violated for the quality of food they provided. Never again.


User:Sarah R.


One of our family's favorite places! Consistently great service, recent functional expansion to get carry-out orders out of the way of dine-in guests. Bartender (i think Vicki) is fantastic, kiltlifter on tap, Wednesdays 1/2 priced wine bottles, good portions on salads, great pizza options and attentive staff. Despite the various locations in the phoenix valley, we could really use one further west =)


User:Michelle A.


Just fun, good food. Ask for Jimmy...he's a kick.


User:Kellyann C.


Ok the food is decent. Definitely not the best in PHX. I originally used this company because I support local businesses. I use spinatos also for my customers at my bar (we don't have a kitchen) but little did I know, they ONLY deliver from 4pm- 9, or 10pm. And the delivery time is ALWAYS an hour- 1:15min... I usually end up calling them back because they're late, yes it ends up being 1:30 min. Not super happy with the delivery service.


User:David H.


I have been.coming here for almost 30 years. Both of my kids have grown up on their pizza. Thus is by far are favorite pizza place.


User:Angela D.


We love everything about this place. We can't believe we didn't discover it sooner. Thanks to Nick and the crew for always taking care of us and our kids! If you want great food and love to support local, this place is perfect for you! Get the Super Six if you're not on the wagon. Oh and start with the mozzarella cheese bread. The gluten-free Greek pizza is awesome if you roll like that. And go on Thursdays. Trust me. Half price pitchers. Enough said.


User:Frank S.


Everything about this meal was great!!! Calzone and pizza we perfect and tasty. Even though the restaurant was busy the food came out in the perfect time and obviously came from the oven to our table. For desert we had the Apple Serenata, it's a type of Apple desert that is specific to this restaurant and I'd come back just to have it again. If you're looking for a neighborhood restaurant with great food and friendly service stop here!


User:Emily C.


If you have a chance you definately need to try this place!! Ravioli with vodka sauce is the best!! Service is great they are always extremely friendly and food comes out fast!! Don't pass this place by.


User:Wendy C.


If you are looking for pizza on the sweeter side with friendly servers this place stays consistent in its tastyness!


User:Brian K.


The spicy Italian pizza has changed my life. I can't even try anything else here and all other pizza is just ordinary. Unfortunately they are closed on Mondays but the pizza rocks. Yummy...change in review...they are now open on Monday. Yay!!!


User:Allan A.


The service here was good. Unfortunately, the food here, like other Spinato's locations I've been to over the years, was bland, bland, bland. In the area, the location was convenient for the time that we had to give. On this trip we tried a Sicilian pepperoni pizza (excessively oily) and a MaMa's signature calzone (wet and runny, not moist). While there are worse places to eat, there are certainly better.


User:Tim B.


Worth every penny and then some. The secret is in the sauce I am pretty sure. The pizza is thin crust and sliced into squares so each piece is easy to handle. Meats are great and fresh, spegetti calzone is amazing, and prices are really good for the quality you get. Be warned though...,once you have Spinato's pizza the other stuff just won't do.


User:Andrew W.


I had a hungry family of 12 visiting from out of town and decided to try this place based on their Yep (Yelp Rep). They delivered big time. The pizzas arrived at my door on time and hot. We ordered 'da greek' and it got rave reviews from everybody. I will definitely order from them again!


User:K Z.


We came here one night for pizza and had an unpleasant surprise. The pizza we had was so incredibly salty that after a piece I just couldn't eat anymore. My mouth felt saturated with salt the entire evening. The waitress was very nice.


User:Bad L.


People who are not from the East Coast won't understand this - but this is Greek Pizza. Greek Pizza is cut differently and tastes differently. Their sauce is sweeter. More sugar and perhaps more Oregano? If you like Greek pizza or want something different, but still very good, then go. If you don't know what Greek pizza is, then stop complaining. Saying this place sucks is like going out for Chinese, but expecting Japanese. Opppa!!! Why 4 stars? The wait staff does suck. A group of waitresses sat at a back table, while people needed to be seated. Our waitress was great, but I would have hated to have these other girls.


User:Artemis S.


Well, had to try this pizza since everyone on here and ON DA STREET has been raving about it. I gotta say, the pizza's not living up to the cred; oh, it's pretty good, but it's good in the way Pepsi is "better" than Coke i.e. it has more sugar. Yeah, so they do they sweet sauce gimmick. While it makes your mouth want more, in my case my head was asking why I was eating a pizza doused in ketchup. Okay, so it wasn't that bad (in fact it was highly tasty), but y'know. I just wonder how it would've tasted with normal sauce. Anyway, what I really want to comment on here is the customer service: I was impressed! I like when I go to a place and you can tell the people really give a damn about your experience and aren't flashing the fake "Scottsdale" smiles that have been rigorously trained into them by some customer service guru or whoever it is who thinks anybody likes that junk. The guys there were all about my needs, cool, and didn't try upselling me a bunch of junk. Just a breath of fresh air in this (and really any) city. I'm a big Chicago pizza guy, so maybe I'll give them another chance; next time with what I call the "real" Chicago pizza experience. (Stuffed pie) BYE


User:Erin B.


This place was AMAZING! Amazing food, friendly and fast service, and a really great menu with lots of fantastic Italian favorites. Also, they have Pepsi products!!!! Hooray! I got the Italian sub sandwich and the hubs for a little personal pizza, both of which were cooked perfectly! Gooey cheese, crispy bread, and yummy, warm Italian cured meats!


User:Jessica L.


Like most of the other reviewers the pizza sauce here to me is on the sweeter side, but I liked it. I noticed a lot of people order their pizza extra crispy; we didn't and the crust was crisp but it didn't crunch, if you like that - ask for it. The hubby and I shared a small pizza and a pitcher of beer plus a side salad. Our Bill was $30 plus tip and we were plenty full. Wed night is half off bottles of wine too; not that big of a selection but getting a $30 bottle for $15 is a great deal. The staff was nice and very attentive to our party of 10. Nothing to complain about at all from our visit. Great job.


User:Nick C.


Let's start off by saying that last night i got delivery from here, and it was an absolute disappointment. Had some friends over to celebrate my promotion, having a few beers.. when i come up with the bright idea to order Spinato's. I feel as if i will pay the extra price to eat there, because as far as quality ingredients.. they have it in the bag.(compared to dominoes or wherever delivers) Called at exactly 5:55. Didn't end up arriving until 7:43. Which i was a little Hangry about.. Total was $53.00, gave the driver $70. Keep the change. Open up the pizza, first thing i notice is its terribly smashed to the top on the box. (well at least it's hot) NOT. Like it had been sitting around for quite some time. Open the bruschetta..just some bread, and tomato bits strewn about in some tinfoil. (maybe the mozzarella sticks will be great) Cold. Just like the Super 6 i ordered. Sad day in pizza eating history. I am not sure if regular management was away.. Or they had new management? But i was incredibly disappointed in the feedback i received when i called to complain that i just spent $70 on some Cold,Smashed pizza to be delivered to my house. AND tipped quite well. Bottom line is, if you are thinking about getting a delivery from here, THINK TWICE.


User:Brooke B.


Only pizza I will eat! Sauce is amazing and they are not skimpy on the toppings at all! Happy Hour has some great deals as well! Service is always great I highly recommend going out to eat there!


User:Toni T.


Just love this place. My family is hooked ;) Someone FINALLY brought Chicago to Arizona. Dream come true. Fabulous food!


User:Norm R.


I'm glad that I finally found yet another pizzeria that offers gluten-free options for pizza and other items. The gluten-free pizza crust is made by GFC (Gluten Free Creations, one of my fave GF establishments in the city). Tucked in a quiet commercial strip, the place has a very casual vibe and very friendly service. The sauce tends to lean a bit toward the sweet side, but pleasantly so, in my opinion. Nice to know that I have a cool place to reward myself after a hike at nearby Lookout Mountain.


User:Steve V.


Found this place by accident when someone brought in some pizza for lunch. Wow just had to go check it out for myself. Walked into the take out section placed an order and they gave me a free fountain drink while I waited. Very clean, friendly and attentive to customer service. And oh yeah the reason I came in is that their pizza rocks! Had the thin crust pep and Italian sausage. Amazing! Yummy! Just found a new fav!!!


User:Michael M.


Really love this place. It has a very home feel to it and everyone is super nice. Food is not stellar, but way above average and well worth the extra trip.


User:Allie M.


The pizza is delicious!!!! I had half Hawaiian half spicy Italian on thin crust & it was so good!! The cheese to sauce to toppings to bread ratio was perfect. It's going to be my new go to pizza place. Can't wait to try other items on the menu.
