But now the King of the hill is Donato's.

There was a place over on the west side years ago. Heard they closed down when I was living in Chicago, but only 1 of their 2 store fronts closed. Fantastic pie...haven't had one in 2 decades. Anyone remember 'Trotta's Pizza'? Home of the "Lotta Trotta" pizza. If you like garlic, that was thee place to go. But Donato's is where the OP will enjoy quality za, the best in the nati'.
Donatos is pretty good but I could never agree that its the best. I like it for the fact that its very unique. Hell, thats one of the great things, all the pizza places are truly unique, at least to me. Each has differences which all add up to be totally separate. My brother loves the Mariachi pizza, but it can do some internal damage!

Hmmm, there was an Italianette in Hyde Park, but they changed their name to Hyde Park Pizza. Had their pizza once and it was decent, but then had a chef's salad one time and it was embarassing. Ruled them off my list for life.

I guess I'm going to have to try Donato's. I never imagined it was any good but I am open to new things.

With due respect, to each their own, etc. etc. but I had a Donato's once and thought it was the worst thing I ever tasted. Of course, if everyone hated it as much as I did, they wouldn't even be in business at all.

Donato's is an extremely corporate version of Ron's, Marion's, Cassano's or other Dayton style pizzas. Same crust style and same tavern-cut pieces. The crust is kind of repulsive to me, it's like a big waffle imprinted cracker that came out of a machine. I'll eat it if I am out with people who like Donato's and I will eat it if there's no other choices available. It's ok.

Donato's is to local Dayton style pizza the same as Domino's is to a true New York style pie. A corporate shadow of the original.

Italienette is wonderful! Not thin crust but not too thick either. And great sauce and lots of toppings. Very family home-made!

I love Donato's, but this is basically true. Cassano's or Marion's is better for thin crust. I do not order Donato's thin crust. I like the hand tossed thicker crust. It can be hard to order because they don't sell much of it. More than once i have gotten my pizza and had it have the wrong crust.

Don't know if it's been posted yet, but apparently Marion's is expanding into Mason. Definitely good news!
