Saturday night and the family wanted pizza. We headed over to Biaggio’s to see what all the hype was about and it didn’t disappoint. We walked in, were greeted by Biaggio (the owner) and his staff and grabbed a seat. We ordered a medium supreme pizza and a slice of cheese pizza for my two year old. While waiting they brought out a complimentary meatball and some bread. The meatball was amazing — made in-house with a mixture of pork, veal, and some other stuff I don’t remember.

The wait for the pizza took a little while and when Biaggio checked on our order he found out that they made a meat lovers pizza by mistake. He came out and apologized and said that he would bring it out so we could munch on it while our correct order was being made. The meat lovers pizza was delicious, filled with house made sausage and bacon. Our supreme came out a short time after and that pizza was equally amazing. One of the best pizza crusts I’ve ever had. Despite all the cheese and sauce the crust remained crispy. That’s something other pizzerias fail at.

They boxed up the pizza we couldn’t finish and on our way out they thanked us for coming and said if it wasn’t a five-star experience he’d make it one next time. While I don’t normally like it when businesses solicit stellar reviews from customers, the food and service was so good that I can’t give them anything less than top marks. Now that Ciao Ciao is closed this will no doubt be our go-to pizza joint.

Since my first visit I’ve been back 4 or 5 times and the food is still excellent. The meatball sub is amazing and possibly the best meatball sub I’ve ever had. The meatball calzone is ridiculously big (more than enough for two people). My only gripe is that there’s too much dough and not enough meatballs. The pizzas, as always, are spectacular. The best crust I’ve had.
