If you like garlic, you will like the pizza but be warned! The service is horrible and if you dine in, they make pizza by when it was ordered. This includes call in as well as dine in. Expect to wait 1 - 1 1-2 hours to get served if you dine in on a fri or say night.
For as busy and popular as they are, the inefficiency is enough for me to not even dine in again. I will also not likely order carry out much either. I grew up on this pizza and love it but the negatives jae outweighed the positives for me.
Hurt and embarassed!!! yes it may be addictingly good pizza, however I am so embarrassed after taking two different friends on two different weekends an hour drive to share a piece of my home town history and both friends were treated like crap, myself included. Hideous wait staff. First visit waited and waited as the host skipped my name. Second time watched most of the restaurant order and receive their pizzas for two and a half hours...there wasn t even anyone waiting in the lobby for pizza. NO EXCUSE! No more friends of this former 30 year customer shall return. Two back to back hideous experiences, and a who gaf staff. Head this warning!
We just moved to Wooster a few months ago and several people told us to try Coccia House. What a huge disappointment! While appetizers and drinks were good, the pizza was terrible. Crust tasted like cardboard and pastey sauce was so garlicy you couldn't taste anything else. Maybe we're spoiled, as coming from the NJ/NY area we've had access to wonderful pizza our entire lives. I understand some locals love this place, but I know we won't be going back there. So far, the best pizza we've found in Wooster is at Mike's Dugout. It beats Coccia House hands down!
Best Pizza EVER!!
I have eaten pizza all over the states and have to say this is my favorite of all time. I have been eating these pizzas for 30 years and they are made fresh and always taste the same. Either you love it or hate it but I Love this Pizza. A waite that is woth it! Hope you enjoy one of Woosters best.
The pizza is good enough. The dough is a bit sour-tasting, the sauce is the consistency of refried beans--I've watched them as they plop a chunk on and mash it down rather than pour or spread it on. I think the extremely high garlic content is the best thing about it--but I am a fan of garlicky stuff. It does stay with you for days and, if you are prone to heartburn, pre-dosing with antacids would be the way to go. Also, If you don't care for garlic, it's best to avoid the neighborhood altogether--you can smell it down the block.
Even if you order ahead, you can often still end up waiting up to a half hour of 45 minutes after you get there--with an average of 20 other people in a room slightly larger than a postage stamp. And you will pay dearly for the privilege of eating this legendary food--it's twice the price of other pizza in the area. To be fair, though, it's really filling and you'd probably get by on two pieces even if you normally eat three or four.
I guess the bottom line is, while I do enjoy eating the pizza, I resent the fact that, since they know that they have a cult following, they seem to believe themselves to be above concern about their prices, speed, or friendly service.
We've been eating Coccia House Pizza (about once a week) since 1960. We raised our 4 children on Coccia House Pizza and our 10 grandchildren are also being raised on Coccia House Pizza. Best pizza in the world!
I first had Coccia House when I was 6 and went to my parents' class reunion at Wooster. Maybe it's that memory, or maybe it's the quaint setting of Wooster, but whenever work takes me that way, I try and either grab a bite or get pizza to go (I just got one tonight; the person's recommendation for what I should get has been spot-on!)
