The kind of hole in the wall pizza joint you crave for. Delicious New York style pizza with plenty of pizzazz. So glad to find a non-chain pizza that is not to pricey. I would take this over many others in the Colorado Springs area. We recommend this Pizza to the true pizza aficionados!

Gessi's is inexpensive, tasty, take out if you like, and they have many non-gluten offerings. 95% of Americans are at least a little bit allergic to the four glutens: wheat, barley, rye, and oats. Gessi's also makes a GREAT Greek salad! I am a... More

Leon Gessi's has consistently offered one of the best pizzas in town for decades. I think their cheese pizza or pepperoni are better than the veggie though. Also, they have the best salad with homemade ranch. Plus, their salads are always fresh and crisp served up with the best roll made from pizza dough. Leon Gessi and Roadrunner are my... More

Leon Gessi pizza has great food and service. The Italian sub is very good and the pizza is consistently good. You stand in line to order and they bring your food to the table. I love the lunch special of a slice and a salad with a drink. The salad is excellent! They serve beer and wine. You have to... More

If you like combination pizzas, I highly recommend The Kitchen Sink. Delicious! I think they are one of the best pizza places in Colorado Springs. Highly recommended and we will be back.
