We love pizza and found theirs pretty good but woefully undercooked. If they work on making the crust crispier it could be a winner. Regular salad size was huge. We could have shared the half size. Garlic knots are ridiculously decadent and so good. Liked...More

The Tony Sacco's Coal Oven Pizza concept was started by three friends from Michigan-Chuck Senatore, George Kurajian and Tony Sacco. Dissatisfied with today's mass produced, cost before quality pizzas, they set out to bring back the original taste and quality of pizza-the way it was made when the first pizzerias were opened in the early 1900's. They recognized that the first and most obvious step was an uncompromising commitment to using only the best ingredients, from homemade dough and sauce to the finest quality cheeses and toppings. But they also knew that the real secret was the method of cooking-in a coal oven, a mainstay of the early pizza restaurants in the Northwest. With its intense heat, a coal oven is able to cook evenly and quickly to create a pizza with a subtle, smoky flavor, crispy crust and ingredients that maintain their wonderful flavor and texture. The next challenge was to design and build their first location. They knew having menu items that focused on quality over quantity was critical. They also felt a need to create an atmosphere that, while more upscale than your typical pizzeria, was still warm and family friendly, Their goal was realized in 2008 with the opening of the first Tony Sacco's Coal Oven Pizza restaurant in Estero, FL. With its upscale interior décor, the open pizza production area, and friendly well trained staff, they created an atmosphere that appeals to discriminating and casual diners alike. The Estero location was an instant success. Its popularity generated significant interest from customers, friends and strangers wanting to open a Tony Sacco's Coal Oven Pizza restaurant of their own, making the decision to expand the brand an easy one. The group decided on franchising as the primary method of expansion and are now located in Florida, Arizona, Ohio, Michigan and Indiana.
