Friday Five: Five locally owned places to get good pizza and Italian food

We do love a good pizza and some Italian food around here, so it was more hard to narrow this down to five rather than build it up! Here are a couple of our, and our customers, favorite locally owned places to go for pizza and/or Italian food--

Leonardo's 706
The garlic rolls are to.die.for! This may be the priciest of the Leo's family, but the food is totally worth it. Go hungry, because between the garlic rolls, the generous servings, and the drool-worthy deserts, you won't want to eat for three days afterwards.

Leonardo's By-the-slice
A rite-of-passage as far as college student eating goes. Prime location on the corner right by the University, getting a slice here is fast and filling.

Leonardo's Millhopper
Okay, yes; we are partial to them because they are our next-door neighbors. So bear with us for a moment while we gush about how wonderful everyone who works there is (completely wonderful!). They also have the best deep-dish pizza ever, good lunch specials, and games on the booth walls!

Great desserts, wide variety of dishes, and karaoke on (I think) Friday nights! What more could you ask for?!

Satchels Pizza
Many of our customers can't say enough about Satchels. The atmosphere is like nothing you've ever seen (unless you remember Kesl's Coney Island here in G'ville about 15 years ago), and the list of toppings you can get on your pizza will make your head spin!
