Pizza (216), Cleveland, Ohio
The 216. It’s more than an area code. It’s the home to a lot: the Indians, Browns, Cavaliers, and Pizza (216)!
Whether you’re celebrating a win, nursing a loss, taking in a meal after catching the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, hanging out before a show at Playhouse Square or an evening at the Jack Casino, or just trying to avoid downtown rush-hour traffic, Pizza (216) is the perfect place for you! Plus, it’s close to all the action – located inside one of Cleveland’s most iconic landmarks: The historic and beautiful Arcade Cleveland!
Once you take a look at the signature rotating brick oven, you’ll know the pizza you’re about to put in your mouth is the real deal! The oven, developed by expert artisans in New York and Italy, flawlessly cooks every pizza in under 3 minutes – perfect for when your appetite won’t let you wait.
For lunch, there are a variety of personal pizzas to choose from, with larger versions available for dinner, including one named for LeBron James, aptly called “The King”, decorated with local sausage, pepperoni, green pepper, mushroom, and onion. Or, you can try the absolutely impossibly cheesy Mac-N-Cheese: sautéed and baked with a house-made 4-cheese-sauce blend, topped with seasoned bread crumbs. You can go ahead and stare…it’s just that impressive!
It’s no wonder Pizza (216) won the 2015 Cleveland Pizza Fest People’s Choice, the 2017 Cleveland Magazine Editor’s Choice Award, and the 2017 Downtown Restaurant Week Judge’s Choice Award!
Pair a pizza with craft beer and Sporcle Live Trivia on Wednesday at 7 PM, and you’ve got the perfect night out!
P.S. The Warriors blew a 3-1 lead.
