Cooks at Michael Anthony’s Pizza kick out authentic Italian favorites such as chicken, veal, and seafood dishes as well as pasta and pizza. Breaded cutlets of chicken or veal parmigiana overflow with layers of tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese, while the broiled shrimp oregenata comes dressed in rich helpings of garlic and lemon. Pastas such as penne, rigatoni, and six-cheese pasta purses are prepared with sun dried tomatoes, prosciutto, and vegetables tossed in cream sauces or baked with sausage and peppers. The kitchen also kicks out pizzas, including a gluten-free variety, as well as American dishes such as chicken cordon bleu and NY strip steaks. On Friday nights, guests can enjoy live entertainment while they dine.

Ragazzi Italian Kitchen and Bar strives to capture the spirit of a Mediterranean trattoria. The chefs make everything from gnocchi and pesto to meatballs and mozzarella in-house. These homespun ingredients lend their flavors to classic dishes such as veal parmigiana and angel hair fra diavolo with shrimp, scallops, and calamari. Meanwhile, they let their imaginations run free on the small plates, including Italian-style spring rolls and sushi-like creations made using imported prosciutto, pine nuts, and fragrant herbs. Familiar items from each side of the Atlantic?from cannoli to homemade apple cobbler?also appear throughout a dessert selection that The New York Times hailed as "wonderful."

In addition to the indoor seating, Ragazzi Italian Kitchen and Bar also features an outdoor patio that opens during the warmer months. In shade provided by umbrellas, diners can enjoy a meal while savoring the sights of the surrounding foliage and the hot-air balloons migrating north for the summer.
The chefs at Eddie's Pizza forge a menu's worth of classic pies and assemble an array of catering trays filled with family-style Italian eats. A duet of regular pizzas arrives studded with traditional toppings such as pepperoni, extra cheese, or meatballs, and a dozen garlic knots befuddle even the most nimble-fingered Boy Scout. An accompanying two liters of soda put out mouth's rooftop fires. Alternately, creations from the catering menu satisfy groups with half trays, serving six–eight people, and full trays, serving 8–10.
At Mamma Cucina's, murals of terra-cotta-roofed buildings and climbing vines create the illusion that guests are dining in an Italian courtyard.

A brick oven, a collection of classic Italian recipes, and a slew of fresh ingredients. Those are a few of the things that make meals special at Boccone Pizzeria & Ristorante, but they're far from the only ones. Many come simply for the family-friendly atmosphere, knowing they can relax and share laughs across plates of linguine and veal marsala. Arguably, one of the main focuses in the kitchen is on specialty pizzas that range from the traditional Grandma pie to the inventive Seafood Oreganata with scampi sauce, shrimp, and clams.
