Ordered a takeout 8-cut pizza with sausage tonite. There was plenty of cheese, sauce, and sausage on it. It was quite tasty.

I live in Arizona, but was born in New York. I couldn't very well travel to Albany and not eat New York pizza. Inferno Pizzeria did not disappoint. The pizza was very good, at a reasonable price, delivered right to my hotel room.

Inferno is a great option for an affordable, high quality pizza in this area. They deliver in the area and can have a pizza ready in as little as 15 minutes for pick up. They also have good hot and cold subs!
