World's Best Pizza – Seriously the best pizza I have ever eaten anywhere. This place is awesome. Growing up I went there for dates in high school and now these many years later I go each time I come home for a visit. The toasted ravioli and pastas are great also but there is just something about that pizza!
Best Pizza anywhere – Absolutely love this place as has anyone I've ever taken there from out of town! Holds great memories from childhood, too, when we would stop there after Cardinal baseball games. Sure, it's always busy BUT if it wasn't wouldn't you wonder if it was any good?!?!?
Tradition...5stars – I LOVE this place. I go every year for my birthday :) The Fettecini is divine and the pizza is excelent. Everyone has bad nights, but what the people don't tell you in the bad reviews is they are ALWAYS busy... so OF COURSE u might have to wait 1/2 hour for your food! hahaha these people amaze me because I have waited an HOUR at this place before, but in all fairness, the staff is hospitable and you can clearly see them working hard to take care of everyone. Maybe I am just partial to this place, or maybe I'm speaking as A) an Italian that knows good food and B) someone who has worked in the restaurant biz a few years :) This place has been open too long and has food too delicious to get a bad review from me :)
Watch your statement – Just moved down the street and was told how awesome this place is.
Great food and quaint atmosphere but both times I have gone there my card was over charged by at least $10. When confronted they said someone must of hit the wrong key. Once maybe, twice doubt it, a third time I wont be back!!
Best Pizza – Great Pizza in a rough neighborhood. Love the Pizza. Has never been known for great service but the food is good. Scary area though.
WORST PIZZA AND SERVICE – We live just down the street and have eaten here before. We went last night to enjoy a family night out at what we thought was a great restaurant. The service was horrible, twice we had to search down our waitress. After ordering it was a half hour when we finally received our two pizzas. They were both cold and you could literally see the cheese slices laying on top of the pizza. I have never had such horrible pizza. You would of thought a 5 year old made it. We paid for our drinks and left. I do not recommend this restaurant to anyone.
Any day of the week, you won't be disappointed (unless you're from Boca Raton - and we all know about them!! – I get to town about 6 times a year from South Florida, and a visit to Cusanelli's is a must the first night.
The salads, seafood canneloni, overall menue, drinks, service is top drawer for any restaurant, especiall in this price category. Aside from the sometimes boisterous dining room, you'd think you were in a much more expensive venue.
Just wish we had Cusanelli's in Boynton Beach, West Palm Beach, Delray Beach or Boca Raton - They wouldn't be able to get a place large enough!!!!!
We also go to the premier venues in Clayton, Central West End, etc. 2 - 3 times the price and a little snooty, but not much better. This is just too comfortable and good to pass up. If I lived in St. Louis I could see myself at Cusanelli's several times a week.
You can contact me at 561-441-2844 if you don't think this is real.
Don't Believe It – I was served the absolute worst tasting pepperoni pizza I've ever had. After one bite I was ready to send it back. It tasted like it was topped with Cheese Whiz. The place was small and the dinning room was cramped and loud.
Better than New York, Better than Chicago, Better than Italy itself! – My parents grew up in South County and grew up on Cusanellie's. They moved away after their 2nd child. But in a family of 6 children, NOTHING compares to this pizza. I live in Chicago now and will still drive down to St. Louis with a huge cooler, packed with dry ice to transport back anywhere from 50 to 100 pizzas for the family. The crust is thin and crispy the way it should be. The sauce is like no other. And don't eve get me started on the Provel cheese. Pepperoni is my favorite, but the sausage tastes better than any other sausage I've ever had. The ambiance is perfect for its history and should never be changed. NOTHING should be changed! Man I miss it so much right now!!!
Fabulous pizza! – My stepdad grew up in the neighborhood and still raves about the pizza. The best homemade sausage on the top with the provelle cheese. We go there every time we are in town.
