Last Saturday was my first visit to Albano's since 1979 and it was great to be back. We loved the dining room, it was dark and comfortable. The large pepperoni pizza we ordered was huge and loaded with cheese. The cheese was real stuff and had a nice flavor. The pizza had a generous amount of toppings and the leftovers... More

After a long day of moving we decided to try Albano's Villa Taco Pizza. It was very delicious and filling. We ordered the pizza to go, so I am not sure on the dining, but the lobby area and outside of the building was very clean and nice.

Albano's has been around this town forever - We tried it again after quite some time and it just isn't good. Flavorless pizza. Too many other great pizza places to try here.

While this is my hometown pizza place, it is also a favorite Italian restaurant that our family frequents whenever we are in the Michigan City, Indiana area. Friendly staff. Delicious food. Modest location. Wonderful memories. You won't regret stopping here for a meal with family and friends.

Albano's opened in 1957; yes I'm that old and remember it as our high school hang out. Haven't lived in MC for years but always go back. Dining room is small, better to order in advance and take out. Pizza is cheesy, toppings are generous, love the Italian sausage, not too tomato-y, good crust. Italian beef sandwiches also a favorite.... More

The taco pizza was amazing!!!!!!! We went on the recommendation of a local in search of deep dish. After reading reviews we got a small taco pizza as an appetizer and it was great. The deep dish was also very good. Be prepared for how dark it is inside but you won't be dissapointed in the food.
