Dear Eat IGH,
We know that everyone in Inver Grove Heights loves Old World Pizza. But I’m not from Inver Grove Heights and I wanted to point out a few things to you:
1. I don’t like Old World Pizza. The sauce is too sweet and the crust is undercooked, especially at the new restaurant and at the buffet. It was good before the move, but something has changed in the new location.
2. Carbone’s is the best pizza in Inver Grove Heights. I know no one who lives in Inver Grove Heights will ever agree that another pizza place is better than Old World Pizza, but Carbone’s is so good. It’s the best pizza place in Inver Grove Heights. The sauce is delicious and the ingredients seem fresher and crunchier than Old World Pizza. The sausage, onion and green pepper and the sausage and mushroom pizza are baked to pure golden brown perfection. The pizza fries from Carbone’s are the best anywhere. The hoagies are pretty decent too.
I know your readers won’t agree with this and I know most people will dismiss this and bash this opinion on Facebook because that’s what people do on Facebook. If they don’t like someone’s opinion they bash it and tell them they are wrong or some other names. Well, I am not afraid to say that Carbone’s is the best pizza in Inver Grove Heights and you should at least recognize them for doing a good job. Not everyone is going to eat Old World all the time and it’s good to have other options. So, yeah, I like Carbone’s better.
Carbone’s has better sauce, crust and ingredients. I just wanted to let you know I think they are crushing it and I can’t wait to order Carbone’s soon.
I doubt you will post this since you all seem to love Old World too but I hope you share this.

Eat IGH Response: Thanks D from Oakdale. Hey, we love Old World Pizza, but you can never eat at just one pizza place no matter how good it is. Old World is great. But so is Pizza Luce, Pizza Lola, Red Savoy and yes, the pizza at the IGH Carbone’s location has really improved of late. We agree it’s good. In fact, we went two years without ordering Carbone’s but decided to give it a shot one night and whatever they are doing they are doing right, because it has improved – a lot. The best pizza in IGH? That is a matter of opinion – thanks for sharing yours!
