Albano's opened in 1957; yes I'm that old and remember it as our high school hang out. Haven't lived in MC for years but always go back. Dining room is small, better to order in advance and take out. Pizza is cheesy, toppings are generous, love the Italian sausage, not too tomato-y, good crust. Italian beef sandwiches also a favorite.... More

7 of us spent over 1 hour and in the end left with no food. Asked the server to take our order she said she thought she already did. Took order. 30 min later she says it is taking a long time but it was because we ordered 7 small pizzas and 3 were deep dish. 15 min later she... More

The taco pizza was amazing!!!!!!! We went on the recommendation of a local in search of deep dish. After reading reviews we got a small taco pizza as an appetizer and it was great. The deep dish was also very good. Be prepared for how dark it is inside but you won't be dissapointed in the food.

My family has been coming to Albano's since it opened. It is hands-down the best pizza ever. We always bring out of town guests here to blow their minds!

I'm rating this 2/5 stars because although I enjoyed my food I wouldn't recommend this place. For take out, I can understand why people rate it higher. This place is definitely more oriented towards to-go pizza. The dining room only has booths so if you have more than 5 in your party you will have to split up. We called... More

We loved their pizza. I loved their crust. Since we are out of town, when we first walked in we didn't know whether to order first or if there was a seating area. The seating area was through a closed door.

I've been going to Albano's for 45 years. Best family true Italian pizza in all of La Porte county. Not in mood for some za? Their tacos are out of this world and they by far have THE best Italian beef in northwest Indiana. Do yourself a favor. Albano's is #1!

My husband and I enjoy getting a pizza to go and then enjoying it on the beach. Friendly place - it is always busy. The pizza is quite simply excellent - if you like family versus chain pizza, put this place on your list.
