The pizza toppings are great, but the dough is awful (to doughy).
I had the displeasure of actually having a correct order at this establishment. The cheese pizza was so greasy that the cheese seperated, the sauce was lacking flavor, aside from the oily remenants, this pizza was unremarkable. The 2 employees were too busy playing on the internet to have time to clean the 4 tables in the lobby area which were all in need of servicing.
I never got to try the pizza because when I ordered they made my pie incorrectly, and then when I came back for the one that I assumed would be the correct order it was still wrong. When I called the store to let them know there had been a mistake and that I would like a new pizza both the employee and the manager of the establishment informed me that I must have ordered incorrectly-though neither time had the toppings I had ordered- because that's what they had written down. Apparently this pizzeria makes it a policy to chastise their customers for the incompetence of their employees. I will not be ordering here again because 19 dollars for 2 incorrect orders and canned product is not acceptable.
Il Vincino is the first restaraunt I always take my visiting family and work collegues to. It shows them that the Srings is not just all ranch food and burger joints. Il Vincinos is modern, classy and the food and environment is excellent. After I show them this upscale Colorado, we can then move onto the ranch hand "theme" places.
Best pizza by far that I've found outside New York. They lose a star for charging $10.50 for a pitcher of Bud light but their pizza rocks and they know how to cook it. They need to send someone over to the downtown location to teach them how to cook a pizza pie.
Il Vicino serves a wide variety of brick oven pizzas, calzones, panini, salads, soups, and pasta. However, there is such a wide variety of pizza, I haven’t tried anything else yet. Most are really yummy. My favorites are those that don’t have the traditional pizza sauce; garlic oil, pesto, balsamic marinara sauce, and spicy oil are all great. Every day they have a special pizza and you can select your own ingredients as well. I have chosen a couple of their pizzas that are a bit bland, but for the most part they are very good. On the table there is a bottle of spicy oil that, even though I am not a big fan of spicy food, I love to drizzle on all the pizzas I have tried.
This isn’t some cutesy Italian joint. The interior is modern and somewhat industrial. They also brew their own beer and I have heard very good things about it from friends who are hops heads. If you aren’t a fan of all the chain restaurants and want a friendly place with great brick oven pizza I defiantly suggest trying Il Vicino.
Boriello's cheese pizza is like cheese, tomato, crust air that has solidified magically on your table. It's never heavy, and the cheese resists turning into a steel pit in your stomach. Worth every dollar, especially considering their current 2/$20 special.
Being a native New Yorker, I am often back there to visit family. And when I do, I have to have two things - pizza (preferably a white slice) and White Castle. Borriello Bros. is the closest to NY pizza I have had in the Springs! Very convenient location with plenty of parking. 4 stars (not 5) due to the Yankees stuff everywhere – I’m a Mets fan!
Closest new york style pizza in the Springs. When it's hot out of the oven, nothing is better! Right amount of crust to sauce, cheese. . . . uhmmm....I'm getting hungry just thinking about this.
The food's good. A fun place for kids.
Lunch pizza buffet is poor.
I love pizza. And I really love Borriello Brothers super thin crust. Oh, and the garlic knots. And the eggplant parm. If you're craving Italian, you can't really go wrong with Boriello Brothers.
Great atmosphere. Wonderful authentic dishes. Sometimes a bit on the pricey side, but well worth it. Traditional pink & white table cloths, fireplace, friendly attentive staff.
