Deli-meat missionary Danny Falcone emigrated from New York's Little Italy to bring Falcone-family favorites to Oklahoma City. A hot sandwich, such as the meatball parmigiana, makes an Italian classic accessible in the forkless wasteland that is lunchtime eating ($7.95). A slice of spinach pizza satisfies triangular cravings ($3), and an entire square Sicilian pie corners growling stomachs ($14.99). Try a Manhattan Special soda, which washes down deli delights in a sugary sarsaparilla bath, or tickles sugar tusks with vanilla bean-y bubbles ($2.50). For those who prefer to eat at home, where there’s a comfortable armchair and no unfamiliar ghosts, there are by-the-pound deli items, such as olives stuffed with prosciutto, garlic, jalapeño, and cheese ($9.50 per pound) and imported Italian artichokes ($12.99 per pound).

Aromatic plumes of smoke rise from The Wedge Pizzeria’s brick ovens, which imbue the crispy, browned crusts of the restaurant's seven signature pizzas with delicate notes of flamed pecan wood. Chefs dapple their saucy canvases with colorful strokes of truffle oil, roasted fennel, capicola, and figs that coalesce to form gourmet masterpieces. Tender pears arrive at tables in sealed envelopes of prosciutto alongside inventive salads tossed with beets, shallots, and oranges. Sunday brunch revives sleepy palates with bottomless mimosas and pizza slices loaded with local eggs and served atop ringing alarm clocks. Bocce balls clack in The Wedge's backyard during warmer months as fans root for their favorite players from the comfort of a spacious patio.
Hot, bubbly pizzas are the name of the game at Take or Bake Pizza, no matter whether patrons purchase them baked or raw. For the latter, they can pop them in the oven or store them in the freezer upon arriving home. The pies—available with three kinds of crust, four kinds of sauce, and nearly 15 topping options—can be paired with calzones, wings, and breadsticks.
Jo's pizzas are always made in house from fresh ingredients, customized to each customer's specifications, and baked in a flaming inferno of fiery pizza-love. Jo's offers four sizes of pizza to satisfy the hunger of rapidly expanding stomach collectives—10 inch, 12 inch, 14 inch, and 16 inch. Choose any of Jo's 27 toppings to play a pizza solo ($8.95, $12.95, $15.95, $19.95), or go straight for one of Jo's famous specials ($11.95, $16.95, $20.95, $25.95). Devour the meatlessly beefy veggie special (olive oil and garlic sauce, spinach, artichoke hearts, kalamata olives, sun-dried tomatoes, and mushrooms) or eat an appropriate Sooner (red sauce with bacon, chicken, sausage, hamburger, pepperoni, Italian sausage, and hot-link slices). For a surprise, get the Gift and turn any pizza on the menu or of your imaginative creation into a small, medium, large, or extra-large calzone, proving that you can have your pie and fold it over into a calzone too. Wash it all down, or just pour a soda over your meal beforehand, with a soft drink (kids $1, adults $1.95).
