thumbnail for DiOrio's Pizza & PubThere is definitely no shortage of delicious pizza in the Highlands, and DiOrio's fits right in! This is a great place to watch a game, host an event or gathering, or just grab a beer and some pizza. They have a 30" pizza if you're really hungry. There is another location in St Matthews on Wallace Ave as well.

Justin Thomas

I'm a guitar pickin' Realtor from Louisville, KY. I grew up in The Highlands and I currently live there as well. I consider myself a Louisville expert with a major focus on The Highlands and Clifton / Crescent Hill areas, but I know our entire awesome city very well! I also am a big fan of photography. I enjoy snapping photos all throughout the city and posting them on my neighborhood facebook pages.
