Where do La Portians get their pizza? At Albano’s Villa of course! We talked with some locals living in La Porte about their favorite pizza dish and got back some interesting and varied answers.
Whether it is just cheese or going all out with meat and veggie options, Albano’s Villa has the best pizza pie to suit all La Porte’s needs.
Mayor Blair Milo said, “I always enjoy a good "treat yo'self" meal at Albano's, especially the Veggie Lovers pizza, and of course the amazing cheese bread.”
Mayor Milo’s favorite includes mushrooms, onions, black olives, bell peppers, and tomatoes.
La Porte Downtown Coordinator Thaddeus Cutler's choice was easy. “The Taco Pizza is my favorite because it combines my two loves: Pizza and Tacos,” he explained.
The Taco Pizza is a combination of Albano’s homemade taco meat covered with mozzarella cheese, tomatoes, and topped with shredded lettuce.
Greater La Porte Chamber of Commerce Marketing Director Drew Gesse said, “I’ve always liked their pepperoni or sausage pizza because it is what my family got while I was growing up. They also have great meatball and Italian beef sandwiches!”
Former La Porte Senator Jim Arnold has a long history with Albano's.
“I went to school with Mickey Albano and the Albano family is in relation to the other side of my family, so I grew up with the Albano’s family! They started in Michigan City and opened up a store about a mile from my house in La Porte," he exclaimed. "So, I can call in an order, make it down to Albano’s, pick up the pizza, and be back home in about four and a half minutes! We eat Albano’s all of the time. We love cheese, sausage, green peppers, mushrooms, and sometimes, not all of the time because my wife doesn’t like them, but sometimes, I’ll put anchovies on my pizza too! But they also make amazing Italian Beef and Italian Salad!”
Talent Attraction Coordinator of Greater La Porte Economic Development Corporation Mark Krentz said, "We're big fans of Albano's! I love the Masterpiece!"
The Masterpiece is created with sausage, pepperoni, mushrooms, onions, black olives, bell peppers, and tomatoes. Now, it must be pretty good when these hardcore pizza lovers decide to grab another type of meal. Albano’s Villa offers an assortment of pasta choices: spaghetti, ravioli, lasagna, and linguine. Plus, you can add more meatballs, Italian sausage, chicken breast, and of course, cheese!
The sandwiches Gesse talked about includes the famous Italian beef, meatball sub, stromboli, hot submarine, and cold Italian grinders.
There are also salads and the non-pizza like foods of beef tacos, wet burritos, hot wings, Italian wings, garlic bread, and garlic cheese bread.
So, take the advice of the locals and head to Albano’s Villa for pizza and more!
