Twin Cities chain serving pizza of the gooey, chewy variety. – In Short
The wooden booths, courteous staff, old movie stills on the walls, and piping-hot, perfectly spiced pies provide a welcoming environment for couples, families and neighborhood regulars. Although the name is a bit misleading, these cozy pizza joints have been right on the money with their generously laden deep-dish creations for more than a decade. The wine list features less than a dozen unremarkable whites and reds.
A good place that needs an update – Italian pie shoppe on Grand Avenue: This place is a cozy pizzeria, but it hasn't been remodeled for about 30 years. First time I had the deep dish pizza, it was great. The second visit I was utterly disappointed with the thin crust--soggy, burned at the edges, and it was cut into very tiny squares--very odd. On both visits, the servers were so busy that they could barely even keep up with our table. No time for personality. You'll also be eating on plastic plates with dinky silverware. The pasta and pizza are served on these beat-up, old, scratched aluminum pans. Freshen the place up, buy some plates, and hire a busboy to help the servers and this place will be much better.
best pizza – I have been going to Italian Pie Shoppe for over 10 years and have never had anything but excellent food! They have the best sauce in town! I highly recommend!
A tight squeeze for 3... – ....into the wooden booth, but the food makes up for! The specials which include salad, bread, and pasta are excellent choices for the price. Baked mostaccioli with a meat ball was around $6 and you have leftovers. The Italian Fry Appetizer was good as well. Group had calzones and pizza - everyone enjoyed their food and I'm waiting to go back. We were there at 1:15, so they service and parking were fine.
Mistakes Corrected – We ordered, it took a long time, something weird with the order, but the pizza was good. The service was good, and they gave us our beer free because it took so long!
A great little restaurant – This is a typical small town pizzaria. The food was good, the service is excellent, they make you feel like family when eating there. Give it try, it's worth the effort.
yum! – i can't get enough of the thin crust pizza - perfection!
