Marion’s Piazza swept three big categories in the Dayton.com Best of 2018 contest, placing first for “Best Pizza Restaurant,” “Best Square-Cut Pizza” and “Best Restaurant to Take an Out-of-Towner.” But Marion’s isn’t just famous in the Gem City. It has gotten plenty of national attention.
“Pizza Today” named Marion’s No. 1 on its “Hot 100” list for the third consecutive year based on the chain’s sales success.
“The pizza and sandwiches one receives today are the same pizzas and sandwiches one received 53 years ago. In other words, the quality and quantity of our food products have never changed since we opened in 1965,” Roger Glass told us.
Joe’s has been a family-owned and operated business since 1959, serving delicious, no-frills pizza made from scratch with handmade dough, delicious sauce, freshly ground sausage, and shredded cheeses. The Old World curled up pepperoni is a must try.
Cassano’s is a true Dayton gem. “Vic” Cassano, Sr. and his mother-in-law Caroline “Mom” Dinisi opened their first shop June 4, 1953 in a 20-by-15 foot room in the back of a Kettering grocery store. They sold 400 square-cut, thin-crust pizzas the first day. Today, you’ll find subs, salads, pastas, calzones, and, of course, pizzas at Cassano's, including a monster-sized 30-inch pizza.
