(WMC) - His heart is as big as his pizza slices.

But in 20 years, Tony Daniele's Millington location of his family's Milano's Pizza chain has never scored the top spot in health inspections.

Until July 15.

That day, Milano's Pizza Millington, 7936 Highway 51, earned the High Score of the Week with a 97 on its health inspection.

"I'm happy!" smiled Daniele. "After, what, 20-something years? Yes, I'm very happy about this."

The Millington store joins two of its eight sister restaurants as a health chart-topper. The East Memphis/Bartlett location, 7625 U.S. 64, has been High Score of the Week twice. Milano's Pizza Cordova, 1740 N. Germantown Parkway, was a runner-up last May.

Milano's Pizza Millington can now boast it, too, brings the top clean to its customers.

"When they come in, we want to make sure they come in a clean environment," Daniele said.

With the Navy, cops and clergy always eating here, it has to be clean -- and the food has to be good.

"When you see the ownership in there, preparing the food, you know that it's going to be good," said Atoka, TN, customer Joseph Brasher, eating pizza on his lunch break from First Baptist Church, Millington.
