“GREAT FOOD!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 January 2012

Lonnie has a excellent selection of Italian food and the pizza, which is New York style, is the best I have found outside of NY City!!

“Best Pizza in Southaven!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2011

I moved to Southaven about a year ago. As soon as I moved I began my search for an aawesome local pizza place, after several months of trying various local Pizza places around Southaven I finally struck gold when I walked into Lonnie Tant's. Not only do they have the best pizza they also have amazing pasta dishes and appetizers. This is my family's pizza place for now on. I recommend the White Pizza with Spinach and Chicken, but all their pizzas are great. Don't forget to sprinkle on some of their house made seasoning.

“Disappointed in the Olive Branch location.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 September 2009

We have eaten at the Southaven location many times and always had good food and service. The service at the Olive Branch location in the evening I'm sad to say is not good, even with just a few guests in the restaurant at the time. The food was good, but with the poor service I don't think I'll be back to this location.

“Nothing like we expected...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2009

In the past, we have visited the Southaven location. We were excited to learn that a new location was opening in Olive Branch which we visited on Friday, 07/10/2009. Sorry to say, we were very disappointed. We ordered a 16" pizza with pepperoni and sausage... there was very little meat on the pizza. We ended up paying approximately $28.00 for a pizza we could have gotten from any other local pizza place.

On our way home, my husband and I were comparing the original Italia’s pizza to the pizza at the Olive Branch location—not even close!

“Best Pizza Around!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 February 2009

This is a great place. Great atmosphere, great food, plenty of room for parties, etc. Lonnie Tant, the owner, makes sure you are satisfied. He uses very fresh ingredients, has a clean place that is kid friendly and goes the extra mile with EVERY customer. Fantastic!!! I am a regular customer now and have never had a bad meal or a bad experience. You MUST try the barbeque chicken pizza.
