Reviewed 28 March 2012

As a long time resident of Southaven, I have eaten at many of the restaurants here and in surrounding areas. This place has the best Italian food food hands down. The restaurant has a real authentic Italian dinner feel and the owner (Lonnie) is often there and will talk to you. He even gave my son a giant cookie free of charge once. I highly recommend the spaghetti and meatballs or the veggie pizza.

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!!

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.

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.

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!
