There's no hurry at Uncle Buck's BBQ. The chefs slow-cook and smoke meats such as ribs, brisket, and chicken, imbuing each plate with a tenderness that can't be rushed. Even the Old World-style pizzas have to bake inside a traditional brick oven long enough for the cheese to melt over and around the assorted toppings, such as pulled pork, sweet peppers, and garlic. Sub sandwiches and hamburgers, wings tossed in one of four sauces, and hefty steaks round out the menu of neighborhood-style American cuisine.
With its wood-paneled wainscoting and robin's-egg blue walls, the restaurant's dining area embraces the same casual, down-home charm as the menu. Outside, a wooden patio seats diners beneath an aluminum roof that provides better sun protection than a parasol slathered with sunscreen.

Newly opened Trattoria de Simonetta borrows its name from cofounder Phillip Simonetta, previously known for making some of the best sandwiches in Philadelphia. Simonetta has brought his hoagie prowess home with a menu ripe with substantial subs built atop a foundation of fresh bread delivered daily from New York. Representative beasts include the cuban–a toasted alliance of ham, swiss, pickle, sliced pork, and mayo that holds a one party rule over your mouth ($5.25 for 6", $7.25 for 12"). Pizzas allow diners to stockpile toppings like pepperoni, sausage, and bacon ($9.99 for 16", toppings $1.50 each), and the homemade minicannoli moonlights as a refreshingly conspicuous spyglass ($1.50). Hoagies and other deli delights can be consumed in the trattoria's comfortable seating area or ordered for takeout or delivery.
At Cousin's Pizza, the kitchen staff whips together 15 types of thin-crust or Sicilian-style pizzas, including the specialty Neapolitan pie. Diners can also create their own pizzas using fresh toppings from either the restaurant's kitchen or the ingredient tree out back. In addition to pizza, the menu spotlights other Italian dishes such as housemade pastas, hot and cold sub sandwiches, and cheesy calzones.

Bella Luna Ristorante's skilled chefs entice salivary glands with an authentic menu of artfully crafted Sicilian cuisine. Diners can prep their mouths for future forkfuls with a half-pound of fried calamari, served with imported banana peppers and a choice of homemade sauces ($10.95). Sample Mother Earth's luscious flora offerings with the eggplant parmesan ($14.95), or her aquatic collection of farm-raised seafood and Billy Ocean cassettes in the shrimp-and-lobster ravioli ($21.95).
