Since 1966, Italo's Pizza has presented diners with authentic Italian cuisine crafted from timeworn family recipes. Crust craftsmen knead and flatten fresh lumps of dough to remove pesky air bubbles and ensure slices don't levitate over dinner plates. Next, cooks swathe the pie foundation with sauce that contains a spice blend made especially for the restaurant, before festooning cheesy canvases with the customer's choice of topping. Italo's offers diners more than 15 pizza ornaments, including pizzeria fixtures such as pepperoni and mushrooms, as well as unique options including tuna and jalapeño peppers. Italo's meticulous pie prodigies also allow patrons to decide how their pizza should be cut, be it in slices, squares, or letterboxed director's versions.
