Authentic Italian pizza and deli sandwiches. Prices are great. Small and rustic for eating in. But that's okay because this is terrific food at good prices served in an ultra friendly way. Loved it. We phoned ahead and they made us a scratch gluten free pizza.

Sovrana has been a favorite of our lunch crew for about two years now since we discovered it. Today, six of us guys made our destination Sovrana for (you guessed it) lunch. I had the chicken parm sandwich and shared with my friend due to the immense size. With two sodas the cost was $10 for the two of us.... More

Having known these guys for a while I'm a bit biased, but only because of my love for their food. Everything is homemade and fresh. Their subs are amazing. You really can't beat this place

Great pizza at a very reasonable price. Wonderful family owned business. Crust - the best! Offer hot heros, calzones, cold subs and hot items. Have only eaten the pizza and rate it right up there as some of the best.

I have fond memories of their pizza from my college days, so I was delighted to find that they now offer gluten free pizza for a small upcharge. It was very good. It's also nice to see a family business dedicated to its neighborhood. While I was there a little boy came in with money for a cookie, the owner... More

Went here in my college days and now years later still occasionally go to Sovrana for a slice. Still as good as it once was. I enjoy both thin and thick crust pizza but Sovrana is definitely for the thick crust lovers. The pie is always tasty and filling and the prices are great. This is a real mom and... More

First time we went, the eggplant pizza was to die for, but the second time the pizza was not fully cooked. Even someone, who walked by the pizza noted that it looked raw. And basically it was. The third time we ordered pizza, we got a white pizza with broccoli and mushrooms. This was also a miss, because the broccoli... More
