Just checking on the best pizza places in the area. Moving from the Tri-state area, so plenty of good options up here. Hoping to find at least one or two options in the area.

I've heard the term tri-state area applied to a lot of different places, but I'm assuming you coming from CT, based on you location tag. The pizza down here is going to be pretty bad compared to what you can get up there. I like Bellacino's best in this area. I've heard Tony's Little Italy in the Village of Providence is good. Other than that, you can look forward to Domino's and Pizza Hut.

Yeah, Sorry, CT. I've found a few pockets of great pizza all over the south, but its a fun search.

Tony's little Italy is great. You can get Terry's pizza which is Chicago style pizza at Star Market Grocery, but let them cook it in their brick oven. I picked one up pre-made and cooked in my own oven and it was not good.

We've really liked pizza from Donatos on Memorial Parkway. It's a chain I guess? But they didn't have Donotos in California so it's new to us. I love their chicken spinach mozzerlla pizza. Yum.

Donatos - is that really thin crust stuff? I think I had some in Columbus, OH. Its almost like a cracker with sauce right?

Bellacino's sounds promising. Hopefully returning to the south I'll lose my winter "coat" so to speak.

I tried Denatos and was not impressed. Not much better than Pizza Hut or Dominoes. I grew up in Chicago and it is hard to impress me with pizza in the south. Try Tony's Little Italy. Order a fresh whole pizza. Pizza by the slice is reheated pizza with the toppings of your choice. Not as good as fresh. I never heard of Bellacino's before. I looked and there is one in Huntsville and one in Madison. We go out every Friday night with another couple and our goal is to try and eat at every restraunt in North Alabama. I will add this to the top of our list to try.

I like Donato's, I just think it is a little pricey for "fast food" pizza. I heard that the Whiteburg's Village shopping center is going to get another Tony's Little Italy where Qdoba's used to be. If so, that is great. Bellacino's is pretty good. They hand toss their dough and make the bread for their grinders every day. They use good quality toppings on their pizza as well. They also make homemade ice cream that is awesome. Of course it won't compete with authentic NYC style pizza IMO, but I like it.

Does anyone know if Big Ed's pizza ever re-opened? We use to go there back in the late 60s when it was on Oakwood Av. (I think)
