(6) Paisano's Ristorante

Of all my time spent in Lawrence, the most vivid memory I still have is driving down Iowa St and hearing the same commercial for Paisano's 7 times on 3 different radio stations in the 15 minutes it took to get to my destination. What does this mean about the restaurant itself? Not much, other than this place is well known in the area, and they aren't afraid to get their name out there. Essentially, this is a slightly better version of Olive Garden, but with less elbow room.

(11) Wheat State Pizza

As should be obvious from their name, the calling card for this pizza joint is the wheat crust. They are likely the "healthiest" of all pizza options you'll find in Lawrence, with a wide array of vegetable toppings and a gluten-free crust available. For pizza places that deliver, they have to be considered one of the best.
