Eddie's Pizzeria & Eatery answers an ancient culinary dilemma: do we go out for pizza or stay in for Mom's meatloaf? Serving New World fare, the restaurant satisfies cravings in a single sweep. Even its pizzas champion this culinary marriage—New York–style pies arrive speckled with traditional toppings as well as premium options, such as rosemary ham. Yet, despite such culinary fusion, the pies never lose sight of their roots. Margherita pizza recalls the dish’s Italian heritage, whereas a 10-inch gourmet Bada Bing represents pizza’s modern stomping grounds with sausage, gorgonzola, and a mini “I Heart NY” shirt.
The menu also explores a large landscape of pasta entrees, from four-cheese ravioli to penne sautéed with mushrooms in a tomato-cream sauce. Meatier plates continue to span continents, with chicken parmesan prepped near st. louis ribs and handcrafted Angus burgers. As patrons strip tangy wings bare, they can watch the venue's eight televisions, two of which boast 70-inch HD screens.
John's Incredible Pizza Co. graces guests with acres of incandescent entertainment options and a fully stocked buffet ($9.49 value, $1.50 value for drinks). In addition to a slew of soups, salads, pasta, desserts, and traditional pizza choices, the buffet brandishes a bouquet of specialty pizza creations, including spicy peanut-butter, barbecue chicken ranch, and alfredo pizza.
The dough wizards at Papa John's hand toss circular masterpieces with original and thin crusts made from high-protein flour to support warm bouquets of toppings. Hand-cut produce crowns all of Papa John's pizzas, mingling with the sun-soaked sweetness of sauce made from fresh, California-grown tomatoes. By adhering to its brand promise of "better ingredients, better pizza," Papa John's grew from a back-tavern pizzeria into more than 3,500 restaurants within three decades' time, or the amount of time it takes to grow a single pizzeria from a small seed. In addition to delivering pizzas, Papa John’s reaches out to the community with charity involvement, including partnering with the Boy Scouts of America and Junior Achievement to teach US students about entrepreneurship and the best method of capturing a wild roma tomato.
Exhilarating music pulses amid the remains of a downed cargo airliner, its wreckage scattered across 4,000 square feet of fog-filled tropical beach. Two teams navigate through these surroundings—dodging strewn pieces of cargo, abandoned huts, and a miniature volcano. Black lights cause Laser Island's neon hues to burst to life. The red-orange glow of the volcano's lava, the vibrant green of the painted palm fronds, and the cerulean blue of the walls' ocean horizon all shine alongside the green flashes of streaking lasers. After roughly 20 minutes, the guests emerge and discover which team scored the most points.
Beyond laser tag, the family-friendly entertainment center features a number of activities for virtually all ages. A nine-hole tiki-themed miniature-golf course challenges hand-eye coordination, and the CoCo Climb station allows adventurers to scale a 20-foot coconut tree while safely supported by a weight-bearing harness and an invisible force field. The arcade section tempts passersby to spend a few tokens on games such as Ms. Pac-Man or Time Crisis 3, and certain games reward players with tickets that they can redeem for prizes at the Ticket Hut. In between games or laser-tag matches, Laser Island refuels visitors with a snack-bar menu that includes everything from pizzas and toasted sandwiches to salads and buffalo wings.
They say the classics never go out of style, and for nearly the last 50 years, the family behind Red Devil Pizza has been proving them right. Their formula is simple: dough made fresh in-house, hand-tossed crusts, 100% real cheese, and fresh ingredients. Using recipes handed down through generations, the family of pizza chefs create a docket of specialty pizzas, such as the time-honored margarita with its cracker-thin crust, tomatoes, and fresh basil and mozzarella. And every new generation adds to the repertoire with more adventurous options, such as the buffalo ranch pizza, slathered in ranch and topped with thick pieces of chicken marinated in hot sauce. To complement their homespun pies, the parlor keeps its coffers stocked with a modest selection of beers and wine.

It's often said that people have many different layers. In the most literal sense possible, the same applies to the Northern Italian cuisine at Mustazzoli Ristorante Italiano. Just look at the restaurant's signature appetizer: bruschetta crescenza. It starts with three pieces of crispy, homemade baguette, onto which is piled crescenza cheese, asparagus, prosciutto ham, and a drizzling of white truffle sauce. If complexity is what these chefs are going for, consider their goal achieved.
But the chefs bring this same attention to detail to every aspect of their menu, from pastas tossed with clams and New Zealand mussels to desserts of homemade white-chocolate cannolis. Once they've put on the finishing touches, they send these dishes off to two different dining rooms, in which guests trade bites with sips of wine and beer.
If you're curious about how to get the most out of your Mustazzoli experience, here are three of our favorite pro tips:
