Supino Pizzeria is known to many as Detroit’s best pizza. I am ashamed to say that I only recently visited Supino’s. As many times as I have walked by there, I have always had other meal plans or the line was out the door and I was too impatient. I am disappointed that I have been missing out on that thin crust deliciousness all this time, but plan to make myself a regular anytime I am downtown Detroit. Supino’s has been recognized on many best of Detroit lists, by Guy Fieri on Food Network’s Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, and is truly a favorite of many real Detroiters… need I say more?
Supino Pizzeria is located in Eastern Market… 2457 Russell Street Detroit, MI. If you know how to get to Eastern Market, you know how to get here. It is easy to spot and access as it is right off of Russell Street.
Supino’s has a simple, but creative menu. They have the option of a 12 or 18″ pizza. You can also grab it by the slice; they offer cheese, pepperoni, or the specialty of the day for around less than $3. A 12″ cheese or pepperoni pie is less than $10 while an 18″ specialty pizza will run you around $17. The pizzas are categorized by Red Pizza (with sauce) and White Pizza (without sauce); many tasty options under each category. You also have the option of building your own. They also offer pasta, salad… the Mancini with homemade lemon-basil citronette was incredible, and cannolis for dessert. No booze here, just pop or water.
Supino’s truly has the small, classic pizzeria feel. There are only about 5 tables in the whole place, a small counter to order at, and people everywhere. They seem like they are always busy, which is a good sign. The nice thing about Supino’s is it is located in Eastern Market, so if you are insistent on sitting at a table and enjoying your meal, you can walk around and keep yourself busy while you wait to be seated. Many people just pop in to grab a pizza or a slice on the go.
