In Springfield, IL there are plenty of places to find pizza, you can find a restaurant around almost every corner if you’re actively looking.

However, if you are planning on taking a pie home after work, Antonio’s will still have you covered.

Another place to get a good pizza in Springfield, IL would be the full service italian restaurant, Bella Milano, on Wabash Ave. Being that this is a sit down restaurant, you can either sit down with a few friends with a pizza or pick it up and take it home. Bella Milano has some good food, but the pizza could be the most popular item on the menu, the sauce is slightly sweet but what really sets it apart from the rest is the cheese they use.
