Neighborhood Classic

The pizza here is well-acclaimed, and it's understandable. But I found the sauce too sweet for my liking and take-out somewhat precarious because the toppings tend to slide around while the pizza is still hot. The service is courteous and quick, and the decor has a nice neighborhood feel. This is worth a try as a benchmark for comparison.

Over the top

Take your Lipitor or Zocor before you come here, because the cheese is piled on with a lavish hand. And what cheese! Gooey, saly and strong, with more than a hint of sheep's-milk cheese (romano? provolone?) in it. Excellent meaty sausage, coarse-textured and laced with fennel seed, is hidden under the winter blanket of cheese. The sauce is, by contrast, mild. There is only a hint of oregano to modify the basic, low-salt flavor of tomato sauce or puree (no tomato chunks). The crust is so good you could eat it for breakfast. The pizza itself looks like a conventional pie, but the taste is extreme! I defy anyone to get a whole pie home without sneaking a slice in the car. This review applies only to the Squirrel Hill branch. There is a Mineo's in Mount Lebanon that appears to use the same recipe, but to me the saltiness and the amount of cheese has been toned down for suburban tastes. There are several other Mineo's Pizza shops in Pittsburgh, but they are not the real thing. The Mount Lebanon branch delivers; as far as I know the Squirrel Hill branch does not. Bring someone with you when you pick up the pie, because parking is all but impossible at both stores. Not for the canola oil and fiber police, but without a doubt one of the three stunningly unique pizzas in the Pittsburgh area.

Still my favorite after 18 years

My dad started off taking me here because he and his friends used to go when it was just a hole in the wall (not that it's much more now). I'm yet to find a pizza as good as Mineos. They've come close, but it really is the best I've ever had. The cheese just MAKES the pizza, no doubt. And I find it a complete joke when people say their favorite pizza is Pizza Hut or Papa Johns. Get out to Mineos or Vincents or Fioris for good pizza.

I've had worse, but have had MUCH better

I don't see how anyone would think these guys are the best in the city. Pizza is one of the few things I dine out for since I have yet to perfect it at home. Mineo's looked and tasted exactly like my homemade recipe, which isn't bad, but certainly not worth going out for.

bad experiences here

Maybe I've just had bad luck, considering that I grew up in Bloomfield and everyone says how great Mineo's is, but I've been disappointed by this place. I've tried the pizza here a few times with my friends and we've been pretty well turned off to eating here again. It's hard to pinpoint, but there is a strange tase to the pizza here, some kind of sour taste. No big deal though, a lot of people like it, and there are plenty of other pizza options in our city.

Simply the Best!

No question...anyone who knows anything about pizza, realizes that Mineo's uses the freshest and the best ingredients in their pizza, and they do not skimp on the toppings. I have yet to find a pizza to equal its quality, and have patronized Mineo's since 1969. Why go anywhere else?

Worth the trip

This pizza is delicious. It needs a fork to be eaten at times the chesss is so thick but it is still amazing pizza. Its worth the trip into rush hour traffic on the parkway to get it.

Very Good, but not for everyone

Mineo's is a great value and very inexpensive (you can leave STUFFED for around $3.50). However, the cheese on its pizza is a little too much for many. Great Veggies, but if you don't like a lot of thick cheeze, stay away!

Simply the best!

I am not kidding! I have lived all over this country. They can't figure out what Pizza should taste like in the MidWest and further west. NY is good Pizza. Mineos is a Island of perfection standing out for the whole country to taste. It does not get any better! Strong Cheese flavor. They use a blend of Ramono. Wounderful tangy sauce, that does not overpower the combined flavor. Crispy crust that zaps yoour tounge with a delicious flavor of its own. The main word for this place is Unique. There is no other like it period. Let the NY and Chicago people think they understand. How could they. They have never tasted such a delight before. When I die..., burry me with a large mineo's Sausage Pie!

Mineo's is an Event

We are from W. PA and have family in Du Bois and the N Hills but live in Elkridge. MD. Often we get pizza at Mineo's upon our vist to the 'burgh. My family had a Pizza shop in Reynoldsville for a decade. I understand quality and Mineo's it all! Taste, freshness, excellent ingredents, satisfaction. We eat it cold and we buy extra to take back to MD.My sister-in law Ruth Ann loves it! Primo Pizza for sure!

I've had better

Sorry mineos.... but I have to say that I don't really enjoy eating this pizza. The toppings/ingredients seem to be fresh, but the pizza just has no taste. The sauce is quite bland. It is also hard to eat... the cheese is so solid that it slides right off the slice leaving me with, well, bland sauce and crust. This pizza is also fairly greasy. One thing that mineos has going for them is their staff. They are some of the nicest people that I have come across in this business. I would return to this pizza place just for that reason alone.

muy bellisima!

This pizza is totally awesome. I would travel around the world for Mineo's pizza as well as a chance to hang out with the Mineo brothers! These guys are great and they are very customer oriented-true ""people"" guys!

Close or far away, any drive is worth it for Mineo's!

Taste The Test Of Time

People Of Earth...

Understand this, Mineo's Pizza House rules the pizza universe. It starts with the perfect homemade crust, continues with the deliciously crafted sauce, followed by the highest quality blended imported cheese, and then just the freshest most bountiful toppings (if you like). This is the one-and-only, the pie that has stood the test of time and is consistently rated the best in the city of Pittsburgh for over 40 years. Others have come and gone, but Mineo's reigns supreme!

Best Pizza

Has anyone else noticed that quite a number of the people who don't think this pizza is good, have listed in their cons that there is NO BEER? I suppose it's true some people can't enjoy themselves without alcohol. Think about it.

I remember as a child going to pick up pizza at Mineo's, and when we moved away my father would bring home pizza from Mineo's when he made a trip to Pittsburgh.

I've been reading through some of the complaints and I especially like the one about how the ""toppings"" aren't buried under the cheese or baked like he likes them.........have you noticed though, that at Mineo's when you order ""toppings"" you get toppings? It's not like alot of places I've been where it seems like they just show the toppings to the pizza, and expect you to think that you got your money's worth.

dont bother with mineos

okay, there are 2 other pizza shops within 500 feet of this dump and both are far better. There are easily 20 other pizza shops in this city better than mineos. Hell, Sheetz pizza gives mineos a run for its money. I dont know what you people are drinking, mineos pizza is a completely unremarkable, greasy mess.

The best

We make the 1 hour drive every other week to feast on this pizza. It is by far the best pizza we ever ate in the US. We always get the pizza with the pepperoni top. The rustic crust is awesome and the sauce is perfect but what ,akes this pizza is the cheese. The cheese is absolutely out of this world.

Whenever we get a pizza from anywhere else we compare it to Mineos and 99% of the time the competition doesn't stand up.

Simply Put, The Best!!

I grew up on the stuff! The pizza is excellent, hands down. I now live in LA and there is nothing out here anything like Mineo's. I get back to PGH every other year and always go to Mineo's. I bring my children there as well. You know, their subs are great too! This is a must stop on your way home to watch the Steeler games.

It's not Vincents, it's not trying to be

This is a local favorite. The pizza is excellent. The Bacon Pizza has more bacon than a BLT sandwich. The crust is very tasty and firm. Excellent sauce. Lots of cheese, no real need for double cheese. A great place for lunch. Take out is the preferred method for this restaurant. It is self service, no wait staff. But the pizza is well worth the trip. Not a real place for ""sit down dining"". Beverages are canned. No water. But still worth the trip. Take it to the motel or the house.

Mineo's a plus

Mineo's is the best pizza I've ever had. The atmosphere is casual and caters to those who just want to sit and eat, no fancy stuff.
