Adriatico’s Pizza is a tried and true classic for Ohio State University students. Located in the heart of the University District, just off the OSU campus, Adriatico’s offers extravagant New York style pizzas in sizes ranging from personal to ‘Buckeye’ (18 x 24 inches). Entering into its fourth decade of business, Adriatico’s has its pizza down to an art, using fresh, quality ingredients that elevate this pizza far above typical student fare. For the more health conscious, the pizzeria also offers salads and pasta dishes. The atmosphere is very casual, and the dining room is small, but Adriatico’s is the perfect stop for a true taste of local culture on the go.
