I am fortunate to live close to Santillo, the best pizza on the planet. Get one well done with a sesame seed crust. No matter where you live it's worth traveling to.

The Sicilian pizza was great. It was plenty of pizza for 3 adults and still had a piece left over. We had pepperoni, ricotta, sausage and garlic toppings. Delicious.

Since 1918 we've been baking bread and making Pizza in our Brick Oven. Our Famous Pizza is Voted Best Pizza by the Media every year. (for years and years) We've been Voted best Sicilian Pie in America, Best Sicilian Pepperoni Pie in AMerica. Every year we rank either #1 or #2 in NJ by all the top Cuisine Media Companies. I've learned there are two types of people, those that never tried our Pizza and those that have been here countless times. Thanks for patronizing our establishment. Regards, Al "the baker" Santillo
