Family owned and the best pizza around. The service is great. Cant say enough. Prices are average. It is pick up only but that's just fine. Salads are offered and very tasty.

After all these years, still the go-to pizza. Their crust is the best: crisp but not hard, chewy in the center. And they use just enough toppings so as not to overwhelm the crust. Their tossed salad is generous for the price and is the perfect accompaniment to make pizza a meal! Good value for the money as well.

Same pizza, year after year. Just terrific. Have eaten this for 40+ years. One small change I'd make, a really good salad and homemade dressing to go with their pizzas.

Was staying in Dover overnight for the Swiss Festival in Sugarcreek. My kids and I love to try new pizzas and gotta say I couldn't be more pleased about finding Penso's. I got the about 2o minutes before the pizza was done and the staff was very friendly and talked to you like you had known each other for awhile. The place was very clean and staff was very impressive in appearance. The pizza is created right in front of you and the was a guy working hard on spreading some dough. Turned out he was the owner and was very willing to talk about the business. Turns out they have been in business for 82 years with his grandfather starting the business in the thirties and his father then running it, and now he does. Although not in the he original building they have still been in the current building for many many years. There are very few places you can go and meet employees and owners who actually like to talk with you. Now for the Pizza, absolutely amazing. The old style pepperoni was a first for me and it was awesome. The sauce is great and the cheese was perfectly done. I couldn't stop eating and really should have, but mamma it was just to good. It is like the crack of the pizza world. I am now dedicated to having this pizza anytime we are in the area. Thank you Penso's for the amazing food and courteous amiable people.

with two kids that love pizza, our options usually come down to pizza or good pizza and Penso's has always been our premier choice for good pizza. the cheese is under the sauce and toppings and on top of the fabulous crust. Good stuff!
