  • If you're a fan of fancy-pants pizza, this probably isn't your place. But if you like old-fashioned American-style pizzeria pizza, you'll have a veritable "timeline" of pizzas to choose from.
  • The BEST pizza in New Jersey, hands-down. I consider myself a "pizza enthusiast" and this place has everyone beat by a mile. They still use the same brick oven they've used for a hundred plus years!
  • Absolutely, hands down the best old world pizza in the world. The quality ingredients, and getting the pie baked to your desired doneness make for an incredible pizza! Won best pizza from Inside NJ.
  • If you're standing at Santillo's counter, you may have noticed there is no dining room. No worries. Owner Al Santillo can point you to a nearby bar that will allow you to eat your pizza there.
  • Best pizza in Elizabeth..perhaps in Jersey!
  • This is a unique pizzeria. I was lucky enough to meet Al during my visit and he was a great guy. I recommend a plain pie, light on the sauce. The crust is thin, crunchy and delicious. Ca$h ONLY!
  • Great tasting pizza, but at a high cost $14 for Reg, and $4 each topping. I would get more simply for taste, but that guy Al has a nasty attitude, and is unprofessional; and they except cash only...
  • Miss pizza from the years past? You can order a pie here in the style of yesteryear.
  • Awesome Sicilian. Loads of pepperoni.
  • The only sicilian pizza I will eat. Best sausage hands down!
  • Best sicilian pie! Ask for it well done & light on the sauce - perfection!
  • You have to be an idiot to drive by this place and not get a pie! No slices, but they do have Pepperoni and Sausage Rolls to go. Real Italian Semolina and an aroma to linger.
  • Everything is good. You can't go wrong on anything.
  • THE best pizza in NJ - EASY!!
  • Don't order on busy days or peak hours. They say half hour till deliver, expect more like two hours and the pie will be burnt. Don't expect any refunds or discounts.
  • Hands down this is the best pizza in NJ. Very limited days and hours. $25 cash come back in 20 minutes.
  • One of the best pepperoni pizzas!!! Take out only!!!!!
  • Solid Sicilian pie and an Elizabeth staple!
  • Sicilian is amazing...I think Jay Leno used to work here back in the day.
