stlouisguy, thank you for the commentary on Cassano's. What you are describing sounds like an ideal, one that most of their locations that I tried at various times in the last 15 years never successfully achieved. At its best it is sublime, but I have had better frozen pizzas than the Cassano's I have tried since the early 90s. I've simply given up on them.

>> There was a place on the corner of Far Hills and Stroop on the western edge of Kettering that was pretty good too, but I can't recall the name right now...

Kettering Village Inn. A family run restaurant that was sold and demolished and a Chipotle stands there now.

    Dewey's Pizza is about on par with Troni's, and I agree they would both rate about  7 out of 10 on a scale rating them against a great NY pie.  Dewey's has locations in both greater Cinci and Dayton.   I am still unable to post on this thread despite several attempts to get board management to fix the problem:

    Here are Dewey's website and locations in greater Dayton:

    http://deweyspizza.com/about
    UD Brown Street
    131 Jasper St.

    Dayton, OH 45409

    937.223.0000


    Kettering
    4365 Far Hills Ave.
    Dayton, OH 45429


    Thank you to all that voted YES on ISSUE 14! We now have a beer permit and are able to move forward in our process to open Dewey's in Kettering. We will keep you updated on when the store will open. Please feel free to contact us if you would like more information.

      stlouisguy, thank you for the commentary on Cassano's.

      As bad as apizza is in the Columbus area, Cassano's didn't last a year here.

        Troni's is imho far superior to Dewey's.

            Yep, I think that was it, the Kettering Village Inn.   Not far from that little shopping center, right?
             
            And yeah, Cassano's can be really good, or horrid, depending.....I was fortunate enough to be associated with them during the good days, but that was a long, long time ago.

              NYPIzzanut, I forgot all about Dewey's.  There is a location here, in Kirkwood, another suburb of St. Louis.  Excellent pizza, IMO.

                What I like about them, aside from their wonderful pizza, is that their branch locations maintain tight quality control  - so that each of their locations produce the same product.

                  Has anyone tried this pizza place:

                  Joe's Pizzeria

                  By Leadbelly Boys (Ron Rollins, Ray Marcano and Jim Dillon
                  More on restaurant
                  Joe's has been a mainstay for 42 years, perched in the shadow of a Domino's, believe it or not, at Airway and Smithville. Ultra-clean, simple decor makes for an inviting dining room, where you can eat some of the very best pizza Montgomery County has to offer: medium-thick, crispy crust, wired sauce and a heavy blanket of toppings and cheese. Served on a piece of thick foil and looking much bigger than its 14 inches, a Joe's pizza will definitely send you home happy.
                  Three-item jumbo (14-inch): $13.75; ask about the EB X EB for $19.75 jumbo.
                  Leadbelly note: They sell unbaked pies you can heat at home.
                  Ray: As a pizza snob who views Midwest pies as red sauce and cheese on a cracker, Joe's has turned me. Nice chewy crust, zesty sauce, gooey cheese. Midwest pie? Fugedaboudit. This is the real deal.
                  Jim: I feel blessed.
                  Ron: For my time and money, Joe's may well be the top pizza in town. It sets the standard. The sauce is some of the best I've tasted. Try the sausage: The coriander busts out of every hunk.

                    I've seen many pizza shops all over the country advertise, "New York Style Pizza". However, I've yet to see a pizza shop advertise, "Dayton Style Pizza".

                      And the ones that claim they make NY style pies usually make something totally terrible and not even vaguely resembling NY pizza.
