This is not in a good area, they do have security out patrolling the parking lot at night. Walking in the restaurant is circa 70's dated and has a musty smell. But don't let any of this deter you. You won't be disappointed by the cracker thin crust and the generous topping of the pizza. Countless toppings to choose from.... More

This is a family run third generation and counting Italian Restaurant! From Appetizers and Salads, to Entrees, Pizza and Dessert everything is homemade and DELICIOUS! A must try for anyone who hasn't been and definitely a repeat for all.

We love Wells Pizza. We have been coming to this location for 45 plus years. The thin crust is superb. We have tried pizza in many different cities over the years and during our travels, but Wells is the best.

I have heard a lot of people say this restaurant has the best food. They must be use to eating dog food because this was not much better. We waited over an hour for a table and then finally ordered. One of our pizzas (we ordered four) came out burned. We told our waitress so she made us a new... More

This Racine, Wisconsin eatery has been in business since 1921. There is a good reason they have lasted so long, they have great pizza and good service. I went there with a group of Foodie people. They know where all the best places are. We all shared a very good anti-pasta salad and we had four different pizza. They make... More

I order pizza from Wells quite often and it never disappoints. Love the super thin crust and the sauce is outstanding. We usually opt for take out and our food is always ready when promised. The staff is always super friendly as well. Not located in the best neighborhood, but I've never had a problem. Seating area is kind of... More

Different good, before anyone assumes anything. It is a different kind of pizza place. It has more of a homely, restaurant feel where there may be family sitting at other tables, heck family behind the counter and serving you too. The service was very good and pizza etc excellent too. It is a little bit expensive, but worth it. A... More

This is a restaurant tucked into an old neighborhood in Racine that takes you back in time. We both loved the warm & inviting interior decorated for Christmas and full of lively conversations from all the regulars that know they've got a gem in there midst. There pizza is very good, we also enjoyed the eggplant parmigiana. The whole feel... More

We went to Wells based on Trip advisor reviews and were not disappointed. We were in fact pleasantly surprised. Racine is a small town with a big little restaurant in it. This is a home grown, family run gem. We loved the pizza that was one of the best thin crust pizza's this side of Italy. It is a genuine,... More

Best pizza in town, and the rest of the menu is excellent as well. This place hasn't changed in decades, and that's what makes it perfect. It's very popular so it's best to make reservations.
