Beef 'O' Brady’s caters to families and sports fans alike with fresh-grilled eats and draft beers served in a casual dining space featuring wood-paneled walls adorned with sports memorabilia and comfy booth seating. The menu warms stomachs small and large with a collection of Black Angus burgers, 15-inch pizzas baked on a stone hearth, and signature wings served baked or grilled in a variety of two dry rubs and 12 sauces. Twenty-one high-definition TVs continually broadcast live sporting events such as NFL Sunday ticket games indoors while diners can opt to enjoy a meal on the outdoor dining patio. The restaurant also features a private back room for large groups and special events.
When Paul Russo moved from New York to Florida, he gained year-round beautiful weather. On the other hand, he lost access to his favorite food, New York–style pizza. So, he opened a new pizza joint to celebrate his home town and beloved food. He called it NYPD Pizza. His pies—discs of fresh dough topped with a housemade marinara sauce—thrilled the community, and have continued to win awards. Most recently, the eatery was ranked the #1 pizza place in Orlando according to Trip Advisor. His restaurant even earned 24th place on the same site out of all the city's 2,882 restaurants, much to the chagrin of 2,858 restaurateurs who now wish that they, too, could just make pizza like a proper New Yorker.
Whether guests are in the mood for a slice of pizza, a hot sub, or a hearty Italian meal, the chefs at Christopher’s Italian Restaurant & Pizzeria can match every craving. The eatery also adds a sports bar element to the mix, with daily happy-hour specials that complement the big game better than an in-house marching band.
Chef and owner Gary Tolla selects dishes from a large rolodex of family Italian recipes to fill out the menu at Tolla’s Italian Restaurant. Veal and chicken receive the parmigiana, marsala, and piccata treatments, and raviolis are stuffed with cheese to create little pillowy pockets almost identical to actual dollhouse pillows. A selection of wine helps wash down hot and cold subs or pizzas concocted from shareable 12-inch disks or personal 10-inch crusts. On Friday and Saturday evenings, live entertainment—from bands to a Rat Pack balloon artist—entertains patrons inside the eatery.
Stucco walls arranged to reveal the brick underneath frame tall, arched doorways and give Pannullo's Italian Restaurant the air of the old country. The Tuscan-style décor accents a menu of traditionally prepared veal, seafood, and chicken entrees, each doused in marinara, wine, or cream sauces. Beneath the awnings in the front of the restaurant, diners can enjoy al-fresco meals surrounded by wrought iron and leafy plants that have been trained not to beg for scraps.
Voted best pizza in town by the Orlando Sentinel for seven years in a row, Pizzeria Valdiano unleashes a welcome avalanche of dough, cheese, tomato paste, and freestyle-snowboarding cherry peppers upon the burgundy-boothed slopes of the restaurant’s interior. The pie-centric menu democratically offers a motorcade of non-pie starters such as fried mozzarella ($4.95) and garlic-bread parmigiana ($3.75) to take down those who lack the drive to take a piece of the cheesy disc. Try an artichoke-hearty pizza Fiorentina ($9.50 for 10", $16.95 for 16"), a peppery pizza piccante ($9.50/$16.95), or a pizza stella ($10.95/$17.95) with melted mozzarella, eggplant, and feta cheese.
