Where is the best pizza in Orlando? Does not matter what section of the city.

    i am really surprised no one has mentioned goodfellas on alafaya. they have great pies because they use a low moisture mozzarella and a higher quality one as well for a great taste. i also am a big flippers guy. their neopolitan style is very tasty.

      When I still lived down there I was fond of the pizza at Del Dio... I believe it's technically Fern Park, might be Casselberry - it's near the intersection of 436 & 17-92 in a strip mall that used to contain Books-A-Million & Office Max. I'm not 100% sure they are still around though, I only get down that way once a year.

      Their philly cheesesteak was great as well... haven't found anything in the Ft Walton/Destin area that compares yet.

        I really like Del Dio's pizza too. New York Style, very good. It's still there, just so ya know. I'd order from them more often if I didn't live even closer to Italian Village, on 436 and Red Bug Lake Road, where the Winn-Dixie used to be. They have terrific New York Style pizza as well.

        I also love the giant crispy slices and gourmet toppings at Lazy Moon Pizzeria near UCF, in the strip mall on University and Alafaya, right across the street from the campus.

          I know this is an old thread, but I'm looking for the best pizza delivery to the International Drive area (Rosen Plaza hotel). Thanks! Do any of the already mentioned places deliver? Also, please give me an idea of approximate cost because we need about 32 10-slice pizzas.

            Flippers Pizza is my favorite on that side of town. Buffalo Pizza and wings is my all out fav. I miss that place since I moved to Mount Dora.

                Thanks everyone! We ordered 27 large pizzas from Flippers for $325 including delivery, so it worked out to about $4 per person. Everyone enjoyed it! BBQ chicken, chicken alfredo, and California classic were our "wierd" choices, along with lots of pepperoni and cheese. The Chicago-style crust was just a thicker crust, but still tasty. They gave a 20% discount on the fancy ones, and a 50% discount on the pepperoni and cheese. Pop was 65 cents.

                Overall, Flippers makes decent American-style pizza.

                If you mention you're a school group (I remember you are from another thread) most pizza places have an "education" discount for, say 10 pies or more.

                  I don't know if my response is to late, but Pizzeria Uno, Chicago Grill is great for a stuffed pizza. Larges serves 4-5 and their "Numero Uno" is 21.99 a pie. Here is the number for their lake buena vista location, if that isn't close enough they can give you a number for one closer. 407-827-1212.

                  Two more I would mention are Brookly Pizza on Fairbanks -- I think he has a second locatiion in the Conway area -- and Alfredo's on Edgewater in College Park.

                    Giovanni's is good NY Pizza. The best i think is Anthony's on summerlin and on 436 in Casselberry. Both Have Suffed pizza and regular hand tossed. Buffalo pizza and wing has the best deal. 20 wings large pizza and coke for $20.

                    Donato's is the lates thin pizza crust chain from columbus ohio.

                    If your staying around the I-drive area try flippers.
