Re: “Borriello Brothers - Power Center

My husband used to live on the east coast, this was the closest to NY pizza that he's seen in Colorado. The staff was great, pizza hot and tasty and the cannolis (especially the chocolate ones) are to die for!!!

Re: “Ruffrano's Hell's Kitchen Pizza

Well I must say that the pizza was wonderful. I'm from New York and I know Hell's Kitchen does a fine job in making pizza. The only negative is that they don't wear sanitary gloves when handling food. They handle money at the cash register and then take care of the next customer without washing their hands. I find this appalling in this day and age when we must be concerned with infections of all kinds.

Re: “Ruffrano's Hell's Kitchen Pizza

I agree with the last review. I've eaten there numerous times b/c the pizza tastes so good. Personally, I've never had a bad experience, but I've noticed the staff tends to become a little tense when service picks up. They've only been open a couple months, so I think once they get there work flow down things should fine. As for the food. The Hell Fire is one of the best pizzas I've ever tasted. My kids love the mac & cheese pizza. Yes, mac & cheese. We all think the homemade cheesecake tastes great as well. The taste of the food is worth dropping in trying for yourself.

Re: “Ruffrano's Hell's Kitchen Pizza

Our visit last Wednesday was nothing like the previous review. Owner was friendly, and gladly explained the menu items to us. The wait for the pizza was a bit long, but the pizza was worth the wait. We had a couple slices of the special while we waited for our pizzas to be cooked. The slices were a bit cool - not bad tasting though. The pizzas we ordered were awesome! We will definitely be back - hopefully he has a liquor license by then.

Re: “Borriello Brothers - Platte

I love it but quit ordering due to very slow delivery times and always getting cold pizza... it's just too expensive for that and I only live 5 blocks away... sad loss

Re: “Savelli's Pizza

Good pizza, good calzones, both with great toppings options, but the sandwiches are GREAT. Especially the cold turkey sandwich. A fresh tasting sub with "better-than-your-average-sub" bread... crusty on the outside, soft on the inside. Simple. Casual atmosphere, friendly service, inexpensive and family friendly.

Re: “Old Chicago - Academy

OC Academy has been my home port for the entire decade. Food's good, beer's better, people are the best!

Re: “Billy's Old World Pizza

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.

Re: “Papa Murphy's

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.

Re: “Borriello Brothers - Platte

Simply the BEST pizza in Colorado Springs. But some time the pizza is lacking cheese ( 1 out of 3 times).

Re: “Borriello Brothers - 8th

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.

Re: “Il Vicino

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.

Re: “Borriello Brothers - 8th

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!

Re: “Luigi's Homemade Italian Food

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.
