Overland >Nick & Elena's Pizzeria
First Time At Nick & Elena's.
My wife and I decided to try this local pizza place as we enjoyed a rare Saturday night off. When we entered we were seated quickly and our server welcomed us and answered all our questions.
My wife loved the salad, and the pizza while not being my all time fave was in the top three. The prices were very reasonable and the place reminded me a lot of the types of places my parents took me to when I was growing up.
The only negative thing I would say is that family members were making boxzes at the next table and holding conversations with other family members while young children ran around the buliding hopping from table to table and were loud at times. (I would have taken these duties to the empty banquet room IMO).
All in all a wonderful time though and we will be back soon and bring our friends. GREAT JOB GUYS AND THANKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Best Pizza & Salad Combo in St.Louis.
My family and I have been frequenting this establishment for years. It's always a great experience. I recommend starting with the Italian salad and moving to the Special pizza. This a common recommendation, I know. But it lives up to the hype. We almost never get anything else. And, for a large salad and pizza, you'll end up spending around $20 plus tip.
One of the greatest things about Nick and Elena's is their late hours. Fantastic for people who might not get off work until 9 or 10pm. It's true the family is there more often at night, but that's part of the experience. It's a family-run business. If the family isn't working, they're enjoying. And I'd much rather have the owner's family at the next table than wait for a table during rush hours.
I'll be planning my wedding shortly, and I'm seriously considering a reception in their banquet room.
Loved it 15 years ago, glad to see the Open sign.. I went a few times before I moved away in 97'. Loved it, glad it is still around. Whoo hoo!!!
AWESOME FOR THE FAMILY. I LOVE EVERYTHING IN HERE EXCEPT THE RED SAUCE AND I DO NOT LIKE A LOT OF THE ITALIAN RESTURANTS AROUND HERE.
Best Pizza in St. Louis, PERIOD!!!. This place has been around for 30+ years for a reason... THEY HAVE THE BEST PIZZA IN ST.LOUIS!!! They also have FANTASTIC salads and pastas. This place is TRUE authentic Italian food. Our family has also had several events held in their private banquet area. Affordable, high quality food... what more could you ask for in a restaurant?
Italian pizza all the way. Nick and Elena's Pizzeria is an authentic Italian kitchen there is no doubt! If you enjoy pizza you'll LOVE this place. PLEASE don't just take my word. Try it for yourself. I live in St. Peters Mo. and drive to Overland JUST for pizza from Nick and Elena's.
Best Italian Food Ever. Nick & Elana's is the best Italian food anywhere in St. Louis. If you have eaten Authentic Italian, you will agree this is the best. From Pizza to Meatballs to Red sauce to Fried Chicken you won't find any better. It is truly a Family oriented restaurant, that's what we love. We have always been made to feel part of the family.
Great Pizza! Great Food! If you can stand the terrible service.. Ive been a fan of Nick and Elena's pizza for years. The pizza is my favorite in the St. Louis area. The supreme pizza is phenomenal. I am not a fan of the service. The employees are rude. The service is horrible. If this were a one time occurrence, I wouldn't complain, but my last three times in the restaurant, I felt as I they didn't want my business. I brought a friend in from Florida, and he couldn't believe how rude the waitress was, I would recommend getting the pizza to go.
Yes...it is that good..
I do think that this is some of the best pizza in the world, but readers should know that this is blue-collar pizza, in a blue-collar pizza place. There's nothing gourmet or foo-foo about it. Its the antithesis of California Pizza Kitchn. They actually use canned onions; but that is a good thing because it the onion flavor actually holds up to all the other toppings (on the Supreme. You HAVE to get the Supreme!) Thin crust, provel cheese.
The salad is the same. Awesome but not fancy;iceburg lettuce, provel, and other toppings if you get the 'fancy' salad. The Iti dressing is LOADED with garlic and freakin' delicious.
This is an actual FAMILY restaurant, where all the employees are in the same family. And the family members that aren't working are hanging out at a 3-4 tables pushed together. And yes, sometimes there are a bunch of kids running around that sometimes talk to the customers, but that is part of the fun.
Go late on Friday or Saturday nights..they are open REALLY late, and not crowded after 8.
Great Pizza, forget Imo's. The pizza and the salad are excellent. The cheese used on both are muy delicious. Mucho Gusto. My family goes out to eat at this restaurant at least twice a month and have been doing this for many years.
