Saxony PizzeriaJohnny Vargo, co-owner of Saxony Pizzeria, says Fishers was picked as an ideal location for the new restaurant.

He says the pizzeria has received positive feedback from the Fishers community since it opened on August 25.

“Fishers is all about community, and we want to be part of it by offering family favorites in a casual, fun atmosphere,” he says.

Vargo says he and his co-owners, Doug Martin and Luis Ramirez, couldn’t have found a better place to be.

“Fishers is a community that encourages work, life and play,” Vargo says. “At any time throughout the year you will find people walking about, whether it’s to the farmers market, to the local donut shop, walking their dogs along the multiple walking trails, or spending time with friends. We felt that Saxony Pizzeria would be the perfect atmosphere to continue that energy, all while providing high-quality food and top-notch service.”

Vargo notes that Saxony Pizzeria is replacing Rails Craft Brew & Eatery, which was in the space for eight years. Customers have already told Vargo they love the atmosphere.

“The atmosphere at Saxony Pizzeria is clean, simple and quaint,” Vargo says. “You will find your classic red and white checkered tablecloths, servers in Saxony Pizzeria T-shirts, and friendly and fast service. We offer outside patio dining that is pet friendly, and indoor seating and bar seating for those customers 21 and older.”

Vargo adds that the food has earned the eatery a solid reputation with pizza lovers.

Saxony Pizzeria“Luis Ramirez is considered the ‘Great Creator’ in the kitchen, and is able to create end products from simple ideas,” Vargo says. “We like to consider ourselves a scratch kitchen where everything is done in-house. We only use the highest-quality ingredients, and consider ourselves pizza perfectionists. Saxony Pizzeria has tavern-style and Detroit-style crust, Wagyu meatballs, stuffed and lightly fried quesadillas, hand-dipped calamari, fresh salads and homemade desserts, plus much more.”

Vargo notes that Saxony Pizzeria has seen a consistent flow of traffic since the soft opening in August.

“We are still working through some changes that come with a new restaurant,” Vargo says. “We are, however, seeing wonderful community support via dine in, carry-out, and late-night hanging out during our live music events. The community of Fishers and the surrounding areas have been very excited about our arrival, and they are showing us they approve by coming back and telling their friends.”

Vargo loves and appreciates the feedback and referrals.

“We hope we can be your favorite place to hang out with friends in Fishers,” Vargo says. “We’ve received positive reviews and feedback, and hope we can continue to do so.”

Vargo says picking out a favorite pizza at Saxony Pizzeria isn’t easy.

“Choosing a favorite is the great debate here at Saxony Pizzeria,” Vargo says. “Tavern-style crust is a thin crust, while Detroit is a square, pan pizza. Other food favorites are our hand-pulled breadsticks with nacho or beer cheese, the sampler platter with mozzarella sticks, quesadillas, corn dogs, chicken tenders, and my personal favorite, the hoagie sandwich. We will continue to schedule live music, both indoor and outdoor, karaoke nights and more.”
