Opening itac2s doors in February of 1953, Cafe Pizzaria was Bloomingtonac2s first pizzeria. The menu consisted only of pizza, but their signature Hot Submarines and Strombolis were quickly added to the list of delicious menu items. Originally named acoeThe Pizzariaac the name was changed to acoeCafe Pizzariaac in the late-sixties. Cafe Pizzaria featured a full-service Mexican menu, acoeLa Tortilla,ac from 1967acc71. A Spanish dungeon theme was used to decorate the back room of the restaurant, including: rod iron light fixtures, giant distressed beams on the ceiling, and whiskey barrels and kegs used as tables and chairs. Remnants of this decor remain in the restaurant. A second kitchen was added to prepare the Mexican food, now used to prepare our grilled sandwiches and burgers.
This is by far the best pizza in Bloomington/Indiana. It's like the pizza that I used to get some 25 yrs ago from the Italian guy in the little pizza place where I grew up. It's a little bit more than other pizza in Bloomington, but so worth it!!! You will never want to eat any other pizza after you have had this pizza!
We found this place by accident 4 years ago. We spend Thanksgiving in Nashville, and every year and this place takes priority over any place else we go. The best pizza anywhere. We are going to be within 50 miles of Bloomington soon and plan to stop and try the stromboli (but I know we will have to have a small pizza, too) Thank heavens we don't live near here. And yes, the salad dressing is fabulous! .
This is one of the true classics of pizza, the pie has not deviated over the years with different fads. Combine ed with excellent hot subs and strombolis in a true college setting, you can understand why this spot has been a constant for nearly 50 years.
