I was in search of a nearby pizza place and found Familia Pizzeria (8090 S. Durango Drive). When I walked in it was like getting punched in the nose with an uppercut of great Italian smells cooking behind the counter.

To be honest this reminded me of a pizza joint I used to hang out in back in Pittsburgh so I was very excited to order.

Familia Pizzeria isn’t that big as they really do a lot of deliveries with so many housing communities nearby. They do have a few tables if you want to eat in, which is what my buddy Glenn and I did on this visit.

We started off by ordering a dozen wings as an appetizer. Ordering wings at a pizza place can be hit or miss as, after all, it’s pizza that is their specialty not wings, but I absolutely loved the wings. I would make a trip there just for the wings.

We ordered a large pepperoni pizza for dinner and the gentleman who rang us up (I’m pretty sure he was the owner) said since we ordered the wings he would just ring it up as a Combo Special, which saved us a couple bucks. That got my attention as well as great customer service looking out for us.

That special was a large pepperoni and a dozen wings for $19.99. We took several pieces home, which made for a great lunch the next day. We ordered the hand-tossed New York Style Pizza, which is my favorite. Their large is 18 inches, making for 8 large slices.

They offer two other styles of pan pizza – Sicilian (a 16-inch square thick crust) and what they call Grandma (a 16-inch square thin). So no matter what style, they will have you covered.

There are several items on their menu I will be trying very soon as they have all my favorite subs like Meatball, Italian Sausage with Peppers and Onions, Chicken Parm and Philly Cheese Steak just to name a few.

One of their signature sandwiches is their Pizghetti Sandwich, which is made of spaghetti, marinara, mozzarella and your choice of meatball, sausage, chicken or eggplant stuffed inside their fresh made pizza crust. Now that sounds very interesting. They also have calzones and stromboli’s.

They also have eight different pasta dishes on the menu. I love to find little mom and pop places rather than big chains and this place is just that. The only thing missing is a poker game in the back like they used to have at that pizza place in Pittsburgh.

If you are looking for some good Italian food at very reasonable prices check out this place out. I give Familia Pizzeria 3.50 Forks.
