Worst Pizza in Co Spgs – First off, I am writing this review for the new Boriello Bros. that opened up on the corner of powers and research. I took my family to go eat at this restaurant after reading reviews and getting some good word of mouth. This was BY FAR THE WORST pizza and service that I have received at any restaurant. I ordered a pizza with sausage, green peppers. In return, I received a pizza with mushrooms and black olives. I went to the counter and told the kid about it (seems that they're all stoners that work there) and at first refused to believe me. Why would i lie???? After they remade the pizza it tasted worse. Frankly, I prefer Papa John's over this overrated pizza
WOW, Unbelivably athentic NY Pizza in da Springs – Who would've thought you could get something this authentic! Real N Y Pizza here in the Springs. I have tried all their locations and they never fail to deliver an awesome product, hot tasty, and memories of authentic N Y Pizza causes flashbacks when eaten. People say the staff is rude, but they aren?t. They're authentic New Yorkers which makes the place more realistic. If you've never been to New York then yeah they can appear rude and indifferent when they are actually warm and friendly.
I've tried a good bit of their different combos and every time it comes out perfectly. I've gone for the delivery option and it takes quite awhile to get there. It is usually hot but have had it luke warm when it arrived, not the best but still beats everyone else in town. Domino's claims to have an authentic NY Brooklyn Pizza. FUGETABOUTIT - It doesn?t hold a candle to the Brothers!
Boriellos' is great, Need the Best Philly in Town? – Best Pizza joint in town, never get my pie anywhere else. I have read another thread where someone was looking for a real Philly in the Springs, I got one for you. They are called Pikes Peak Treat and they are from Philly. They use to have a restaruant located in Woddland park but since has been sold and went under. The best Philly in town garunteed. I get one once a week. They now have a mobil unit and set up to do lunch at places throughout town, want one? Call them to see where they will be next, 719-231-7233. His name is Bob. Enjoy.
Needs serious attention – i would like to say that the borriello brothers pizza on 8th street needs more customer service training,,because, I waited 10 mins on hold just to talk with someone, then ordered,,,order wasn't in the bag,,,,,i would not recommend this kind of service,,,,,,,,,,
Avoid the Fountain Borriello Brothers Location!!! Horrible customer service!!! – We used to order pizza from the Platte Borriello Brothers location and were excited to see one open in the Fountain/Security area since it has been our family's favorite for years. How WRONG we were. We gave the Fountain location MANY times to get it right but their pizza is just not nearly as good. Be careful of the delivery ... it will be cold, soggy, and squished in a heap if they even end up delivering it at all. After our last order ... and believe me ... OUR LAST EVER order... it took 90 minutes and it never showed up. Upon calling we were greeted with an apologetic delivery boy who claimed he got lost (but didn't bother to call) and then were transferred to an extremely arrogant rude manager named Bill who argued with me about the order and directions and said they called (which they didn't) and when I told him I would have appreciated a call if they had delivery problems and that I no longer wanted the pizza anyway he said that's good and that they'll survive without my business. They never even tried to make it right. Well that might be the case...but hopefully word will get around about how poor this business, management, food quality and customer service is. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS TO ANYONE!!!!
Most Authentic East Coast style pizza in the Springs. Hands down the best. – I'm from the east coast. Pennsylvania to be more exact and the biggest thing I miss is the food. Icy Tea, Cheese steaks, and pizza. I discovered Boriello Bro's pizza a couple years back while driving downtown and I have been a loyal customer ever since. Sure it may take a while to get your pie, but who wants some cold slice that has been under a heat lamp all day. Real Italians working there as well, or at least down town. Colorado is lacking true mom and pop italian cuizine and this place is the real deal. I love it. If you like quick, horrible tasting pizza, call dominos. Boriello Bro's is authentic and makes me feel at home. And another thing is they have Sicilian style. Most Coloradans don't even know what that is. Now all I need to find is a real cheese steak joint cause taste of Philly isn't it, either is Trivelli's. Real East coast folks know what I mean. Plus the try to rob you on the tastykake hook up. I recommend downtown store as the one in fountain is not fully up to par, due to the lack of skilled pizza tossers, the downside to any mom and pop shop who has to expand due to demand.
Sucked – Pizza was an hour and a half delivery time. Pizza was cold and sucked. Driver told me that he was given 6 pizzas to deliver and that was why it was late. Sounds like poor management to me. I won't be back and don't recomment Borriello Brothers in Fountain to anyone.
YUMMY! – ahh finally pizza in the west that deserves to be called pizza, coming from NY i can say that this is as close as it gets to the true NY experience, taste and service. nothing better in CO!
Poor service – My family is a $35-50 a week pizza delivery consumer. We were excited about boriello bros menu which is very diverse with appetizers, salads, sandwiches, pasta dishes and desserts for delivery.
We have ordered twice from the fountain/security store. The delivery is a problem. Our first order last wednesday was slower than their competition in arriving at just over an hour. The pizza was better than your average Domino's and the cannolli were pretty good. Ordered tonight (thursday) and was told that delivery would be 45/60 minutes. Called just before 90 minutes to check and was put on hold for 5-7 minutes after reciting my phone number. Manager picked up and advised that my order was taken as a pick-up and not a delivery. Manager advised that my $36 order would be delivered free but would have to be re-cooked and would be "quite a while" before they could deliver it. I declined.
Hung up, ordered Papa Johns and had it in 35 minutes. Tipped well.
There are better pizzas in town - some of them delivered. I don't think this place is going to make it. Menu is great, prices are average, pizza is a little above average, customer service is poor.
Screaming babies – We went out Friday night for a family dinner and there was a screaming 2 year old. He screamed for the whole 30 minutes we stood there! I asked the cashier to do something but she just smiled. I said if an adult was screaming in there they would do something! The popularity of the place has grown bigger than the room--they need to expand! Because they are so small, service it truely terrible and one would think they could afford enough cheese and red pepper shakers for the crowd. If you like a one topping pizza, it is truyly the best but if you like more than one topping it is soggy city.
