Each of Milano's Pizza's thin-crust pies start with fresh dough and house-made sauce, but from there the rest is up to you. To build-your-own pizza, you'll need to somehow choose from a list of nearly 30 toppings, including unusual items such as steak, fontinella cheese, artichoke hearts, and even crabmeat. Of course, if that's too overwhelming, you can always opt for one of the eatery's 18 tried-and-true specialty pizzas, including a pierogi pizza topped with mashed potatoes, onions, bacon, and cheddar. And although pizza is the specialty at Milano's, there are plenty of non-pizza items on the menu, too, such as pasta, calzones, and hoagies. Whatever the main course, you'll want to save room for dessert, where you can go the traditional route and order a chocolate-dipped cannoli or go the untraditional route and order another pizza.
The chefs at Luciano's Italian Brick Oven whip up prepared-to-order Italian cuisine with house-made meatballs and tomato sauce made from scratch. Divvy up a 14-inch alfredo pizza ($12.25) or embark on an archeological expedition through the lasagna's layers of cheese, lean ground meat, and house-made tomato sauce ($11.30). Diners revel in the sea’s tasty bounty with the shrimp scampi sautéed in lemon-butter sauce ($15.55) and sink forks into the flaky, breaded, and fried eggplant parmesan ($11.95). The chicken marsala, lightly sautéed in marsala wine and fresh mushrooms ($15.50), is as tasty as a framed chicken-marsala portrait is tasteful.
You can top off Pizza Parma's pies with any of more than 30 uncommon gourmet toppings. That includes cheeses such as gouda and greek mountain cheese, meats such as crabmeat, gyros, and steak, and veggies such as artichoke hearts, eggplant, and broccoli. The pizzeria’s chefs can put the same rich ingredients in a steaming calzone or string them on a necklace for a loved one. Alternatively, there’s a wide selection of wraps and hoagies, which, depending on what part of the country you're in, are also known as "grinders", "heroes", or "denver omelets".
The cooks at Nobby's Pizzeria sprinkle hand-tossed crusts with tangy, homemade sauce and aromatic cheese made from a smoked provolone blend. In addition to classics such as pepperoni and sausage, they adorn seven signature pizzas with creative toppings ranging from ranch and buffalo sauce to capicola and olives. Their menu also includes other Italian-American staples, including meaty hoagies and ricotta-covered calzones.
The chefs at Pizzutti's Restaurant roll and slice delicate ribbons of spaghetti, and other pastas in the bustling kitchen. The housemade pastas, alongside other noodles imported from Italy, act as anchor for dishes that also feature housemade pesto. Classically prepared Prince Edward mussels with tomatoes and chives join the seasonally rotating menu, served indoors, on the patio, or next to a Leaning Tower of Pisa hologram.
