Good local New York Style pizza. They only take cash so be aware of that. The place is no different than when they opened forty of so years ago from what I can tell. The make a good product so I guess that makes sense.

Finest NY-style Pizza using only the best cheeses, sauces and ingredients. His sausage pizzas are made using handmade sausage! Most pizza chains use a cheese product which is only partially cheese with added oils. After you've had Gargano's pizza, you'll never go back to chain pizza. Support this family business making old-school, delicious pizza.

We have been trying different local restaurants for pizza on Friday evenings. This week it was Gangano's. Even though it is close to our house, he haven't been there in years. We should have. The pizza was delicious. We will be back.

Pizza was good, burgers thin but tasty. Owners very nice. They give military and service people discount. They sell beer too.

Gargano's pizza is the best. Anybody I bring along when I satisfy my craving says the same thing - it's the best. The sauce is rich without being over-garlicky, and the crust is always browned perfectly - puffy and never crisper. This is what a real pizza pie is,Thanks Garganos, we hope you get another 3 decades. They have a... More

Excellent pizzas with tasty sauces, hand-tossed crust and (my favorite) home-made sausage for the sausage pizza). The prices are reasonable with an nice, local restaurant (not fancy but good). The owner seems to enjoy talking with customers and engenders a friendly atmosphere.

This gem sits on an intersection that causes you to drive by and not stop. I often did and then finally, one day decided to stop. Wow, the New York native owner knows his stuff. Great friendly service. Simple menu and fantastic results including one of the best pizzas. This is on my circuit for Lancaster travels!

Decent place for a quick bite with co-workers. Friendly and family owned. Downside is cash only. But worth supporting local fare.
