    Great calzones

    Where can I find one in central Iowa? Loved robins but it's shuttered now.

    I recommend Pisano's down by Yankee Stadium. Newman raves about them all the time. It's on his mail route.

    Can't help you out other to say that given Des Moines' large Italian population and corresponding number of local Italian restaurants, I'd find it hard to believe there aren't several excellent options.

    Noahs? Chucks? Gino's? Latin King? Tumea & Son's? Someone must be able to help this brother out.

    Let the great taste test begin! I have to admit not looking for a calzone at Latin King.

    Noah's Ark! When I lived in Des Moines, I'd call the order in, pick it up on my way home and it was so big that I'd eat half the next day. Dangit! you just made me hungry!

    This is the correct answer. Maybe the best calzones in the world.
