Maurina Branchinelli wakes up early to prep ingredients in La Villa Pizzeria's kitchen. The mother of the restaurant's current owner is known to make sure her pomodoro sauce has the right amount of olive oil and even hop behind the line to help sauté during the dinner rushes. This love of food runs throughout the Branchinelli family, from Maurina's husband, Benito, to her brother, Gino, who opened the family's first restaurant in 1955. The Zagat-rated restaurant has thrived since opening in Queens in 1982, enough to expand to two locations in Brooklyn.

Inside their kitchens, chefs stoke wood-burning ovens to bake more than 19 varieties of pizzas, including Neapolitan- and Sicilian-style pies dressed with whole-milk mozzarella and a specialty San Marzano tomato-and-basil sauce. Each location has a spacious dining room where patrons can split appetizers of homemade meatballs, dig into plates of sautéed Nature veal marsala, and down a rich shot of espresso before a long night of wondering whether they paid the phone bill.

When two people are in love, they never want to be apart. The same holds true when an astronaut loves a pizza—just ask space explorer Garrett Reisman, who allegedly once traveled deep into the starry sky with a slice of Peter Pizza by his side. While it's hard to prove the validity of this tale, it's at the very least easy to assume that the borough's favorite astronaut—who's explicit about his love for Peter Pizza—fueled up on triangles when he returned to Brooklyn for NASA's Hometown Heroes 2008 campaign.

With signature pies such as the Sophia Loren, whose fresh mozzarella, garlic, and tomatoes blanket a sesame seed crust, plus a large selection of savory pasta dishes, wraps, and hero sandwiches, Peter Pizza both satisfies and inspires cravings for classic Italian flavors. In addition to dine-in and carryout, the shop offers local delivery free of charge.

New York native and Italian descendant Marcello Bucca teams up with his wife and cousin to create Sliceria Pizzeria’s host of pies, sandwiches, and Italian dishes from recipes rooted in the culinary traditions of Palermo and Sicily. Featured on Serious Eats and Best View in Brooklyn, the Buccas curate a menu of a dozen hand-tossed pizzas decorated with more than 17 toppings, which range from the familiar pepperoni and sausage to Old-World classics such as anchovies, ricotta, and peppers arranged to resemble Galileo’s astronomical calculations. The pizzeria also turns traditionally savory pies sweet by anointing dessert pizzas with Nutella and powdered sugar.

Applying skills acquired while working at New York’s Rainbow Room, Executive Chef Francesco Cuozzo combines fresh ingredients to craft house-made potato gnocchi and veal sautéed with shiitake mushrooms. To pair with savory items, co-owner Mario Fortunato extends the success of his Fortunato Brothers Café & Pasticceria, alongside son Carlo, by introducing fine dining palates to specialty sweets such as cannoli Siciliano. All delectable courses transpire inside the charming, low-lit dining room.
