Quality Pizza and Service Since 1976

   The Original Pizza Place was founded in the Grand Central Mall in 1976 by Brooklyn, NY native, Michael Ruscitto. The Pizza Place introduced Pizza by the Slice to the Mid-Ohio Valley and instantly became a town staple. 45 years later, Michael still owns and operates the Grand Central Mall and Downtown Marietta locations.

If you stepped in to our kitchen you’d see we make our dough every day from a recipe we have maintained through the years using simple ingredients. We blend imported Italian tomatoes and spices to create our pizza sauce, and cut our premium mozzarella cheese to precision thickness to ensure its pinnacle melting capabilities. We hand chop all of our toppings, from fresh vegetables to premium meats. Our NY Style Pizzas are hand stretched and crafted to perfection, and every Award Winning Sicilian style Pizza we make requires a skilled process before it even get in to our deck ovens.

We emphasize to our staff the importance of friendly and efficient service, and our skilled Pizzaiolos always strive to create a quality product to all. We are thankful and appreciative of our loyal patrons who have supported us generation after generation and we welcome the opportunity to offer a dining experience that we are passionate about-whether in our restaurant or out of our pizza box.
