Italian is Italian!
These 'reviews' are mostly worthless when so many are obviously written by the owners or their staff or friends. "Pack up the car and bring the entire family because everyone is sure to find a delicious choice..."? Sounds like a damn commercial.
Billys offers a delicious and bountiful lunch or dinner buffet with a spin from Chicago. They offer homemade pizza, thin and stuffed crust, homemade italian sausage and italian beef and pastas with marinara sauce. The salad bar has numerous choices, I am vegan and break my diet when visiting with my husband, and they are always willing to accommodate special dietary needs. They recently added Chicago Vienna hot dogs to the menu. If you don't like buffets they also offer a full menu. Pack up the car and bring the entire family because everyone is sure to find a delicious choice.
Billys offers a bountiful buffet for either lunch or dinner for any and all pizza or Italian food fans. I am originally from Chicago and the pizzas, beefs, and italian sausage here are fabulous and homemade. They also offer an assortment of homemade pastas, lasagna, and desert. The buffet offers a wonderful selection of greens, I am a vegan, but break my diet when I visit Billys with my husband. They are willing to make a gluten free crust if I want to supply it and also put any toppings on a pizza you may want. If you don't want the buffet, they also offer a full menu. Take the whole family and enjoy.
If you like cold and then nuked pizza, this is your place. I prefer an environment that has a bit more class then some fast food joint. I had to go next door to 7-Eleven when i was done eating to get a candy bar to get rid of the bad after taste.
If you don't like their regular crust - try the DeLite crust. They push it as lower cal and lower carb, but really it should just be called thin n' crispy crust - it's AWESOME! Only complaint is that the pepperoni is just right one time and super-spicy the next. Love the onions - they mix white, green and red onion together.
Simply the BEST pizza in Colorado Springs. But some time the pizza is lacking cheese ( 1 out of 3 times).
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.
