We had exceptional service, and the food was delicious. We had appetizers, salad, and pizza - and plenty of leftovers! It was mid afternoon, so not a big crowd, but our server was on top of everything and made excellent recommendations. The White Pizza is a must!!

very visit to Valparaiso, Indiana is not complete without a visit to Gelsosomo's Pizzeria located at 2605 Laporte Avenue. Whenever we visit our daughter, we stop in a Gelsosomo's and order The Works 10". So yum.

Family gathering: delicious food, friendly wait staff. On this visit, they were a bit overwhelmed, so it took multiple requests and time. We were visiting with family, so it the delays weren't a big deal. Lots of options to choose from, so there was something for everyone. Shrimp ravioli was excellent!!

We have just moved to Valpo and tried this place out. Coming from the Chicago area I. am spoiled and expected a better pizza. This one was just average. Service was slow. Will keep up our search.

The food is great. Having been there several times and everything I've eaten from pizza to mostaccioli can't be beat! The service is above and beyond. Can't wait to go again!

We recently discovered this hidden gem a year ago and my family and I cannot get enough of it. With all the chain places in the area don't waste you money on typically service and lame food. The people here running it care especially at this location. The pizza has got to be the best for 20 miles. Not enough... More

We have just moved to Valparaiso. We have seen this place many times so we decided to give them a try. My wire is lactose intolerant so she ordered a gluten free which was not very good. My pasta was OK. Service was OK liked Lucretia better.

All of our pizzas for eat in or take out have been delicious from the Valpo Gelsosomos. Recently I ordered one for take out, arrived on time and the pizza was delayed due to an oven malfunction.

I LOVE their pizza! The sauce is perfectly sweet, and is different from any other pizza in town. When thinking of other pizza I have had across the country, this is probably my favorite. It's moderately priced. I have also had the mozzarella sticks, which are just ok, nothing grand.
