Pizza and pasta headline the menu at Pisano's where, house-made marinara sauce simmers on the stove waiting to smother piles of spaghetti and submerge calzones. At the same time, the kitchen crew tosses dough by hand to craft pizzas that give diners a more authentic taste of New York than licking their televisions when Law & Order is on. Diners can enjoy their meals indoors or on the covered patio where they can warm their toes by the fire pit on chilly nights.

Big Pie in the Sky Pizzeria

New York–Style Pizza | Specialty Slices | Featured on Man v. Food | Vegetarian Alternatives

Sample Menu

  • Pizza for carnivores: the West Coast Pesto topped with romano and cream cheese, pesto, and chicken
  • Pizza for herbivores: a white pie with roasted garlic and three cheeses
  • Side: seasoned breadsticks paired with marinara

    When to Go: For dinner and a show, stop by at 3:30 p.m. or 8:30 p.m. on Monday–Thursday, when Big Pie typically schedules its Carnivore Challenge. During this 60-minute feat, one hungry duo attempts to eat an 11-pound, meat-laden pizza in exchange for a $250 cash prize. The challenge is as daunting as it sounds—not even the team from the Travel Channel series Man v. Food could conquer it.



    Inside Tip: Make sure you show up with an especially hearty appetite. Even single slices are massive here, since they're cut from one of the pizzeria's 30-inch pies.

Though they emerge from the oven smothered with attractive toppings ranging from banana peppers to feta cheese, the tastes of Pizza Capri's pies always emerge from their foundations of housemade dough and housemade marinara sauce. Between slices or bites from meatball subs doused in the same marinara sauce, diners sip domestic and imported beers or soft drinks such as iced tea brewed daily.

Around the eatery, sports flicker across flat-screen TVs and guests compete in weekly games of bar bingo, team trivia, and texas hold'em. An amusement area includes pinball, Silver Strike Bowling, and Golden Tee machines for diners who aren't skilled enough to manually play golf inside the restaurant.
