World Famous Pizza

Our dough is Angelo’s famous recipe featuring a secret selection of herbs and tangy spices. We lovingly hand roll our dough daily, and let it rise a minimum of 12 hours before it gets hand-tossed (watch our pizza tossers through the kitchen window!) and baked at about 475 degrees for 8 minutes – this causes the dough to bake into a delicious and fluffy crust, and you can order thin, thick or regular! 

We hand slice crisp and fresh vegetables delivered daily, and use only the highest quality and most flavorful authentic Italian meats. It costs us a little more to use these ingredients, but it makes our Pizza that much more special, and we think you are worth it! Don’t just ask for pizza, demand Lamppost!

About Lamppost Pizza

Established in May, 1976 by Mr. Angelo Barro and his sons, Tom and Dan, Lamppost has grown from three individual establishments to a successful chain of over 40 restaurants operating in several California counties, Texas, and now Reno. Innovative, creative, disciplined grass roots marketing coupled with superior products, friendly, neighbor-down-the-street service, and a fun, family-oriented atmosphere fuel Lamppost’s success. The mission of the restaurant is to be a family restaurant/neighborhood place involved in the community:
“If you’re involved with Lamppost, you’re involved with the Community.”

The menu focuses on pizza made with the finest ingredients and an expanded menu of pastas, sandwiches, and appetizers to please the palates of all ages. Our pizza product ranges from the basic pizza with your choice of toppings to a more sophisticated specialty product pioneered by Lamppost in the early 1980’s. Lamppost’s pizza and pasta dishes have won awards throughout the state of California confirming our assertion that the “consumer knows quality.” Quality ingredients, environment, people and service, combined with its extensive community involvement, develop significant loyalties for Lamppost with consumers in the markets it serves. 55-65% of Lamppost’s customers come into our restaurants to dine
in a casual family atmosphere, 20-30% carry-out, and 10-15% have the product delivered.


Owned and operated by Reno Residents, Laura and Jay Watson, Lamppost Pizza Reno strives to provide a Family Friendly environment. Our community participation includes, but is not limited to, active support of local schools, area sports, and Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. This location provides a game room, full bar, Multi-Game Poker machines, Free WIFI, and other events during the week.
