Pizza Man

Carmelo Aparo's first culinary influences came from his parents. They immigrated to the US from Sicily in the late 1950s, bringing with them a trove of recipes for Sicilian sauces and pasta dishes. After graduating from culinary school, Carmelo Aparo opened Pizza Man in 1986, honoring his heritage by crafting much of the menu with the authentic recipes his parents brought with them so many years ago.

Today, the dining room's butter-hued walls seem to melt in the light from floor-to-ceiling windows as plates of baked clams and sautéed veal and chicken arrive steaming from the kitchen. High ceiling fans mingle the aromas of mussels, stuffed eggplant, and pastas laden with prosciutto. Patrons can consult a server about the establishment's specialties, such as the veal margarita with imported ham.
