Pizza Nostalgia is a hidden gem! The restaurant is quaint and cozy, the food was delicious. We ordered the pizza, breadsticks and two different soups and everything was fresh, warm and delicious. Our server was attentive and so kind. Highly recommend!

The staff was friendly and warm. The heat from the brick oven warmed the entire place with an amazing smell of fresh pizza. The owner struck up a conversation but kept it light so we were able to enjoy our meal. i'm not in the Detroit area often but the next time i am, i will dine here.

The pizza was excellent and I will definitely return. I wish they would have a antipasta salad. It’s more of a plate which I would prefer a salad. But I would still definitely go back for the pizza.

The pizza was perfect. I’ve experienced allot of brick oven pizza and this is ranked at the top. I felt like I was in a small town in Italy, amazing. The owner Mario stoped by our table and shared a few joke as well as their enormous cannolis.
Highly recommend this hidden gem!

We ordered a family salad that cost $17 plus change and the salad was 99% spring mix . You literally had a handful of croutons and a few tomatoes. Probably cost $3.00 to make !! Totally not happy with it and I can go elsewhere where you actually can get a salad loaded with items in it for around $9.00 for a family . I won’t come back .

Very few customers for a mid week lunch. I had a create your own pizza. Chose three ingredients; mushrooms, cheese and arugula. I think I saw three slices of mushrooms.
My sister ordered the fettuccine Alfredo and that was very good.
Wait staff was friendly and precise.
Only gave a three as they could make Pizza ingredients more visible. Pizza was tasteless

Best place around for great brick oven pizza and entrees! We’ve been going there since they opened! Service is excellent and personable and Mario and Jake always make it a point to come to the table to say hi and make sure everything is perfect! It always is! Prices are comparable to restaurants offering fresh and delisious food! Highly recommend Pizza Nostalgia!!! Sherry M

Brought my cousin who is from out of town here for the first time, and needless to say she LOVED it! She has MANY allergies to food, which makes it hard for her to find something she enjoys, and Pizza Nostalgia is the place for her to enjoy any dish on the menu. We got the garlic cheese bread, which is absolutely amazing and two small pizzas. Everything was cooked perfectly and our server Alec was awesome! Overall, great experience as always and we will certainly be back for more!
