This Italian Bistro/Bar has been the best in the Kalamazoo/portage area for years! The food and menu selections are simply the best!

The only reason I didn't give it a 5 is the sauce was just a bit too sweet for me. The variety of toppings is fantastic!

Ordered a sub on a Friday night a few weeks ago. Went to pick it up and they said they lost my order. Understood, as they were fairly busy. Decided to try again, and yikes - a 12" 8 Dollar Sub was $12.70. Worse part - no meat to speak of. Used to be good, but now filled mostly with... More

We always enjoy Erbelli's--our #1 spot for pizza. Ask for light sauce and original hand tossed crust and you will be delighted. Portage Rd is often packed so arrive early or do takeout. If you eat in, service is usually great. Lots of good brews as well. Enjoy!

Only reason I didn't go all out with 5 / 5 is it was so loud in this place you couldn't hear the person across from you. Have been here twice and both time it was just like this. Pizza and breadsticks are incredible. Margarita pizza was the best I had. Wine seemed pricey, but then a glass is actually... More

There are bars that sell food, and there are restaurants. Erbelli's is a pizza restaurant dressed like a neighborhood bar. By pizza restaurant, I mean I don't even look at anything else on the menu. Pizza is a highly competitive food category anywhere, and around here Erbelli's takes home the trophy almost every time. You can try Franco's in Portage... More

Service was excellent. Food was good. Would recommend to families, as well as couples. Easy access and plenty of parking. Very business at dinnertime, every day. Worth the wait.

Erbelli's is a local restaurant with a great reputation. They have many innovative and local products that are used on the pizza. We have tried several pizzas and the lunch buffet. They can be very busy, since they are popular, so call ahead. If you choose to wait, it is worth it!!
