Uncle Andy's Pizza's kitchen crew crafts dough from scratch each day to serve as a base for traditional and deep-dish pizzas, which complement the carryout menu's sandwiches and finger fare. For square deep-dish, round traditional crust, or thin and crispy crust pies (thin crust available on small and large only) choose from small with six slices ($5.99+), medium with eight slices ($7.49+), large with 10 slices ($8.99+), x-large with 15 slices ($10.99+), and party tray with 30 slices ($19.99+). Round or rectangular crusts give shape to specialty pizzas ($9.99–$29.99), such as a bacon-cheddar-cheeseburger pie. Hungry digits deconstruct half slabs of barbecue ribs ($9.99) and stretch around 10 buffalo wings ($6.99) slathered in a choice of four sauces. The kitchen staff forms 16-inch grinders ($9.99) and beckon teeth to excavate the italian sub's salami, baked ham, and three-cheese blend. When not baking edible wheels, Uncle Andy's Pizza often holds fundraisers for local charities and helps out-of-work forks find jobs as staple removers.
Sila Italian Restaurant & Bar has been slinging up Italian-American classics for more than 50 years?practically an eternity in the restaurant industry. After all this time, Sila's pizza is still one of the most popular items on the menu, with chefs loading up thin and deep-dish crusts with traditional toppings of sausage and pepperoni, as well as gourmet alternatives such as eggplant and shrimp. They also tuck cheese inside manicotti noodles and toss meatballs and sauce atop submarine sandwiches. To pair with these stick-to-your-ribs creations, the bar pours red and white wines, soft drinks, and beers by the glass, pitcher, or wheelbarrow.
Having been passed down through two generations of the Vettraino family, the Green Lantern Lounge is a pretty big heirloom. It even looks like one: since opening nearly six decades ago, the pizzeria has filled with sports memorabilia and old family photos. The Vettrainos honor the past in the kitchen as well, cooking pizzas with their original recipes that call for age-old techniques. These range from cutting thick, New York-style pepperoni from their links in natural casing to using a mammoth tusk instead of a rolling pin.
The hearty pepperoni pieces can be found on a few of Green Lantern's pies, including Tommy's Tantalizing Super Special with ham, mushrooms, and green peppers. Other popular menu items include the candy-coated bacon strips and the eponymous reuben, which features corned beef or turkey beneath a scoop of the restaurant's signature coleslaw.
At Antica Pizzeria Fellini, passionate chefs fashion wood-fired pies, sandwiches, and salads from traditional Italian ingredients and cooking methods, as live musicians fill the aromatic air with the sounds of strings and Latin jazz. Each delicious disk on the pizza menu bubbles with authenticity from being spread with imported italian cheese, sauce, flour, and olive oil and cooked in a traditional Neapolitan wood-fired oven, before finally being cast as an extra in a Scorsese film. Hand-sliced mozzarella cheese covers pizzas with creamy flavor, and the house-made dough kneaded from flour, sea-salt, and yeast instills pies with a mouth-watering simplicity. In addition to gracing dinner tables with the aromas and tastes of freshly baked pizza, Antica Pizzeria Fellini dishes out salads loaded with crisp, wholesome veggies, and traditional central Italian saltimbocca sandwiches.
Pizza has been the main draw at Tania's Pizza since the restaurant opened in 1987. That's not much of a surprise, but this place does have a few tricks up its sleeve. Chief among these are the creative specialty pies, which include the Sam's Hawaiian (ham, pineapple, bacon, and onion) and the Royal Oaker topped or stuffed with cheese, pepperoni, ground beef, onions and banana peppers. The eatery complements its signature dish with oven-baked calzones, meatball subs, and other traditional dishes hailing from the quaint town of Italy, Michigan.
