Kimberly A: “This place has the best pizza on Put-in-Bay. The owners are great people, very friendly, and their staff is very respectful. They make it a point to ensure the customer is happy. I’ve been getting pizza for 4 years from this place and I’d recommend it above anywhere else on the island to eat”

Pat M: “It was a very hot day when we stopped in at Cameo Pizza. The ladies that we encountered when we walked in were not only nice but rushed water to us super fast because of the heat. We ordered two pizzas and they were very, very good. The prices seem high compared to general pizza locations in northern Ohio, but the food and service were very good during our visit. Toppings and sauce were flavorful. Cameo is certainly far superior pizza-wise to Frosty’s in town.”

Tom M: “I love finding good pizza places when I travel and this is a great spot. The pizza was ready in 10 minutes after ordering. I like thin crust and that’s how it was prepared. I ordered a pepperoni pizza. It was excellent and definitely recommend Cameo Pizza if your in Put in Bay. They are open until 3 am. So great spot for late-night pizza! Enjoy!”
