Waves of heat radiate from an open oven door as a chef pulls out a Sicilian pizza baked to a golden finish, then slides in a fresh crust topped with eggplant, roasted peppers, and house-made mozzarella cheese. Other chefs prep for the dinner rush, cutting up homemade rigatoni noodles to later douse with a tomato or beef bolognese cream sauce. Classic Italian dishes can be prepared family style, in which heaps of pasta are divided among siblings according to their age or skill at dogsled racing. Emilio’s catering service also brings platters of pasta, salad, and sandwiches to parties of all sizes.
In the kitchens of Torcellos Restaurant, cooks splash wine sauces over seafood, veal, and dishes from an extensive menu of Italian favorites. As traditional or whole-wheat pastas wind around forks, Italian entrees of veal, chicken, and fish fillet sauté in savory wine sauces. Patrons can promote sharing with a catering package, which offers dinner for up to 60 people or a late-night snack for one competitive eating champion.
For more than 50 years, Albert's Pizza's chefs have been prepping pies a little differently: they layer the cheese beneath the sauce, where it melts and merges with the crust. That crust is housemade each day, forming entire pies as well as square slices for purchase. You can customize your pizza or go with a gourmet option, many of which come with toppings that evoke Italian dishes. For example, there's a baked-ziti pizza, a fettucine-alfredo pizza, and a lasagna pizza along with classic meat lovers' and hawaiian variants.
The menu also features sandwiches, calzones, pasta dinners, and sliders, small versions of sandwiches served in 3- or 6-packs. None of Albert's extra food in the kitchen goes to waste?the staff donates the surplus to Island Harvest, an organization dedicated to hunger-relief efforts throughout Long Island.
The chefs at Lo Piccolo's Pizzeria and Restaurant specialize in thin and crispy New York–style pies, but they make a mean Chicago-style deep dish and thick Sicilian pizza as well. Specialty pies hold a variety of fresh toppings that range from the classic napolitano spread to a crust crowned with breaded chicken cutlets, bacon, cheddar, mozzarella, and ranch dressing. The menu offers other Italian specialties, too, including veal parmesan and pasta doused in marinara, vodka sauce, or Nickelodeon slime.
Bella's Pizzeria's chefs take their time to make every dish special, from the utterly familiar pepperoni pizza slice to the unusually tasty veal francese. Their pizza dough is made from scratch daily, and the chefs top each disk with homemade sauce and fresh toppings. The chefs imbue pasta dishes with secret spice combinations, and they bake up a few special treats, like buttery garlic knots to warm up the appetite, or nutella-filled calzones.
