WANT SOME PIZZA? – The Nino’s Pizza sign greets customers in Lansdale.

LANSDALE – Nino’s Pizza, a familiar name to many, is celebrating an astonishing 56 years in Lansdale, Pennsylvania. It’s considered a neighbor to me; I eat here all of the time, which allowed me to grow closer to the company and its owners, who, by the way, are the nicest people you will ever meet.

The first question that comes to mind. . . why Nino’s?

Margaret and Philip Maltese, the current owners of Nino’s Pizza, continue to run this location in respect of their father’s name. Like I stated earlier, Nino’s has been is business for 56 years and continues to move forward. This is an impressive accomplishment in itself, but I was even more inspired after sitting down with Margaret Maltese to talk about her pizza business.

Maintaining a family owned pizza place may not be the easiest thing, but she has made it clear that she loves each and every part of it.

“We just love the idea of a pizza place and the people we serve,” Maltese shared.

One of the things I like most about this pizza destination is the old school feeling when you walk through the doors. It shows how much the owners focus on the pizza purchasing experience, not just the revenue.

“We don’t have a website, just a Facebook page. We prefer to stay old school because that is what we know,” Maltese said.

Now, let’s get to the food. A menu filled with pizza, pizza, and more pizza. There are other items on the menu that satisfy those who desire a different style of food, but for those who DO like pizza, you are in luck.

“This is a pizza shop, so we stick to what we do best– pizza . . . we offer alternatives, but people enjoy our pizza the most,” responded Maltese.

WHICH TO CHOOSE? – A myriad of menu items are on display at Nino’s Pizza.

The most popular menu item is the buffalo chicken pizza, which I have to admit is pretty darn good.

I asked her what her favorite menu item is. Her response sums up how much thought they put into their menu.

Maltese  stated, “I like everything here. If I didn’t like it, I wouldn’t serve it.”

The owners of Nino’s Pizza sustain a positive working relationship with their customers on a daily basis. Overall, if you are ever looking to try something new or start a family tradition, give Nino’s a try. I can promise you this: you won’t regret it.

When I concluded my interview, Maltese referred to me not only as a customer, but a friend and a neighbor. She will make you feel just at home as I did.
