The Navarro family, owners of Leaning Tower Pizzeria and Ristorante, has been serving up pizza, calzones, pasta, and sub sandwiches since 1994. Their selection of specialty pies includes the L.T. Special, which comes loaded with eight of their most popular toppings, and the white pizza, which maintains its porcelain complexion by skipping the tomato sauce. Sicilian pizzas boast an extra thick crust and calzones come in three sizes?lunch, dinner, and booey (for two). The menu also includes salads chock full of veggies, italian meats, or bits of cheese shaped like Vespas, as well as made-to-order garlic rolls slathered in olive oil and seasonings and a handful of new gluten-free options.
Owned by a three-generation family of women, Rosie's A Taste of Italy relies on the Old-World recipes that Grandma Rosie brought with her from Italy. Joined in the kitchen by her daughter and granddaughter, Rosie prepares fresh pizza dough and hearty sauces every day. The oven-crisped pizzas and sandwiches come with an array of toppings and fillings, including spinach, salami, and peppers. The restaurant also draws crowds with its comedy nights on Friday and Saturday evenings. During the two-hour shows, local comedians work for laughs as diners sip house wine and ponder how many lightbulbs it takes to cross the road.
After growing up in his father's pizzeria, native Italian Pasquale "Pat" Giammarco set out serve pizzas using the secret sauce and simple rules he learned from his father. Each Marco's Pizza location makes its dough fresh each morning and slathers pies with a blend of never-frozen cheeses and a red sauce that incorporates three types of vine-ripened tomatoes and imported spices. Along with its fleet of signature pies, Marco's serves up sizzling and meaty sub sandwiches, as well as spicy wings and platters of sausage and meatballs.
Extreme Wings takes taste buds to the flavor's edge with a menu featuring casual eats as well as hearty chicken offerings. As chicken wings flutter forth, vegetarians can also select fowl-free wraps or salads. Open every day until midnight, the casual eatery stands as a beacon for hungry night owls and those looking for tasty bait to lure a raccoon into a rival bobsled team’s sled.
The chefs at Luna's Italian Food plate up a hearty menu of Italian fare, infused with fresh ingredients and authentic recipes handed down from the owner's Italian mother. Diners seeking rolling, country-side tastes can opt for the caprese sandwich, a filling amalgam of fresh mozzarella, prosciutto, basil pesto, and tomatoes ($7.95) and served hot on ciabatta bread and rowed to tables in miniature Venetian gondolas. For an injection of zest, the spicy italian sandwich wallops flavor sensors with layers of sopressata, salami, ham, provolone cheese, giardiniera, and roasted pepper stacked upon a plump roll ($6.45). Utilizing fresh fixings grown in their organic garden, Luna's culinary masters craft a rotating list of daily specialty dishes, including baked ziti ($6.95) on Mondays, chicken parmigiana ($7.95) on Tuesdays, and eggplant rolatini ($6.95) on Fridays. Sweet teeth craving a post-fete treat can happily marinate in a bevy of Italian desserts, such as the tiramisu ($4.95), scrumptious cannolis ($2.95 each), or scoops of gelato, available in a variety of flavors and infused with delicious pixie tears.
