Chiusano’s Pizzeria – Brick Baked Goodness

A cloudy and dreary Friday evening makes for a difficult date night. One way to bring a little warmth is a visit to a local pizzeria. For a recent outing we chose to dine at Chiusano's Brick Oven Pizzeria in Village West. Located at 1713 Village W Pkwy, Kansas City, KS 66111, this locally owned restaurant offers up Naples style pizzas. Out of the Cold As we entered the pizzeria, we noticed it was pretty busy. That is always a good sign, so we were sure to have a good time. The seating is a mix of tables and booths. There is [...]

Neapolitan Style Pies At Spin Pizza

For as long as they have been around, surprisingly we had never visited Spin Neapolitan Pizza restaurant. During a bout of shopping, hunger overtook us, and we stopped by their location at 14230 W. 119th Street in Olathe, Kansas. What we discovered at this locally originated pizzeria has created a couple of new fans of the place. […]

21st Century Delivery at Topp’d Pizza

Pizza is one of our go-to foods, because it comes with so many options. One drawback has always been the long cooking time, but Topp’d has made that a problem of the past.  We visited the KCK location at 3934 Rainbow Blvd. If you are farther south you may want to stop in their newly opened second location at 8750 Penrose Lane in Lenexa. We can only assume that they offer the same menu at both sites. […]

Enjoying Happy Hour at Paulo and Bill

We love a good Happy Hour, and are always searching for new places. A visit to Paulo and Bill, located at 16501 Midland Drive in Shawnee, was an opportunity to check out their specialty menu. We hadn’t been to this location in quite some time, so we were eager to see what changes had taken place. […]

Hit the Mother Lode at Pizza 51

*UPDATE* The Mission Road location has closed, but you can still visit their KCMO location at 5060 Oak Street. Some days the good things just fall into your lap. Pizza 51 West, at 5938 Mission Road was one of these good things. On a Sunday afternoon we were running late for having lunch. A quick check of the maps on my phone showed a pizza joint was fairly close to our location. Without any previous research we decided to just wing it, and drop in for a bite. A Little Background As we closed in on our destination we began to wonder if the map [...]

Family Rules at Old Shawnee Pizza

You can tell a lot about a restaurant by the length of time it has been in business. Old Shawnee Pizza was established in 1969 by Joe Walker. Looking to provide a better life for his family, he borrowed the money from his father to begin the venture. Years later, seeing the need for more room, he moved to the current location at 60th & Nieman Road. They have since expanded to add a second location in Lenexa, Kansas. We have visited both sites, but prefer the original, as it is much closer to our neck of the woods. […]

Plentiful Eats at Italian Delight

In 1971, a brand new indoor mall opened in Kansas City, Kansas. People from all around the region flocked to Indian Springs Mall to shop, be entertained, mingle, people watch, and eat. Italian Delight was among the restaurants to call it home. For years this was the place to grab a quick bite or a drink in the mall. People lounged over their meals, while watching the crowds pass by. It was a place to be seen. Many of us came for the pizza. The hot, gooey slices came with an almost limitless choice of topping combinations. The bubbly crust was tender with [...]
