The scents of bubbling cheese and tangy marinara waft through Frankie's Italian Cuisine, where chefs have built pastas and pizzas from Old World recipes since 1967. In the kitchen, chefs craft dough and sauces each day to ensure that meals taste as fresh as a mentholated snowflake. When preparing seafood linguine, they cast nets of pasta into boiling pots, pulling up a succulent catch of gulf shrimp to slather in a house-made white or red clam sauce. In the dining room, napkins morph into Renaissance-style paintings as tomato sauce artfully drips from 15 specialty pizzas, such as the margherita with fresh basil, roma tomatoes, and buffalo mozzarella.
A party room accommodates up to 30 guests with ample seating and an array of dinners that include salad, italian bread, and a nonalcoholic beverage. Alternatively, diners can fuel parties at their homes and offices by placing catering orders for 24-slice pizzas, pasta trays, and dessert platters studded with cannolis and cheesecakes.
Domino’s has been decorating dough canvases with flavorful sauces, an assortment of cheeses, and high-quality toppings that range from classic to unconventional since 1960. Domino’s dough is tossed daily and stretched by human hands, not by clumsy catapults and model airplanes flying in opposite directions. Treat friends to a tasteful feast by checking the online menu and crafting a custom masterpizza with Domino's wide range of ingredients. Famished diners too starved to choose their own toppings can select from Domino’s American Legends, featuring signature flavors from throughout the land. Pizzas such as the Pacific Veggie, Honolulu Hawaiian, or Wisconsin 6 Cheese impart all the delicious diversity of a road trip without the hassle of decoding an atlas. Nonpizza fare includes pastas, sandwiches, and breadsticks.
Armando's Pizza has been flipping fresh-made dough and perfecting Old World recipes since 1967. Nibble passionately with a diverse menu of appetizers from flatbread bruschetta ($6.95) to original-recipe dusted wings in a choice of sauce ($9.95). Hand-tossed dough plays canvas to 13 signature pizzas as deliciously as hand-tossed canvases of artist-rendered pies. Fresh tomatoes, italian sausage, roasted peppers, Uniondale mozzarella, and red onion comprise the Sicilian ($11.95), and shrimp, scallops, and calamari jump from the sea to the pizza di mare's doughy deck ($14.95). Entrees like gnocchi a la vodka ($12.95) and veal porcini ($15.95), induce salivation, and slow-cooked baby-back ribs ($19.95) bring a finger-licking element to date nights. Sandwiches, panzerotti, and desserts complement the menu, giving it a range more extensive than a basso-soprano's Pavarotti figurine collection.
Danny Boy's is a neighborhood, Rat Pack–themed Italian foodery with walls covered in records and photos of Frank Sinatra. Start a meal with garlic bread with cheese ($6.99) while perusing a classic Italian menu, which features salads, woogie melts, Rat Pack pizza starters, and more. The Hammy Davis Jr. stuffs sliced ham, ricotta, feta, fresh basil, tomatoes, house Italian dressing, cheddar, and crumbled bleu cheese into a baked doughy monument ($7.99). Frank's appetizer pizza pie is wall-to-wall EVOO, pepperoni, cheese, black olives, tomatoes, ricotta, and Italian spices ($8.99), and a plain cheese pizza ($9.99/six piece) can be customized with toppings, such as mushrooms, pineapple, and Canadian bacon. Uptown toppings, such as meatballs, artichoke hearts, and grilled shrimp ($1.50–$7.50) turn any standard disc into a visually stimulating feast.
Guys Pizza Co. is all about a custom pizza-eating experience, allowing diners to pick everything from the crust to the sauce to the toppings. Whether it's a New York–style, gluten-free, or Chicago-style deep-dish pizza, each pie comes loaded with a slightly sweet classic tomato sauce, zesty red sauce, white garlic recipe, or pesto sauce. Next come the meaty toppings—such as gyro meat or pulled pork—and fresh veggies, including green peppers, spinach, and olives. For the pizza averse, Guys also churns out burgers, wings, quesadillas, and sandwiches.
Guys Pizza Co.'s pie twirlers knead fresh, local ingredients into daily-made dough destined for pizzas or the eatery's signature Guyzone. Two large pizzas' traditional or thin-crust varieties can be customized with well-spiced seas of classic red, zesty red, white, or pesto sauce. Toppings shake up each slice, with selections ranging from banana peppers to pepperoni to onions capable of causing tears of joy. The mini Guyzone ($4.99, feeds one), the menu's juiced-up version of a calzone, challenges diners with a hefty pocket packed with cheese and three toppings, all bundled up to dunk in marinara, garlic-butter, or hot-buffalo sauces. The specialty pizza with white garlic sauce ($9.99 for a small) more closely resembles an exploded baked potato with smashed potatoes, bacon, cheddar, mozzarella, provolone and a side of sour cream.
