Each morning, TJ?s Pizza?s chefs craft mounds of pizza dough from scratch. They stretch out crusts into rounds or squares sprinkled with classic toppings or premium ingredients like balsamic chicken, sun dried tomatoes, ranch dressing, and chipotle sauce. In addition to pies, the dough forms calzone pockets, which are then deep-fried. The pizzeria also serves oven-baked sandwiches and baked pasta dishes.
Decorative bottles of olive oil perch atop Anna Marie’s display case filled with freshly-baked pizzas, lending a rustic Italian air to the cozy trattoria. Cooks crown these specialty pies and calzones with spinach, Bermuda onions, pepperoni, and hot cherry peppers, as well as whip up colorful plates of veal marsala and chicken or eggplant parmesan. They also crafts more than two dozen gourmet sandwiches named for celebrities, such as the Joe Pesci with roast beef, turkey, ham, and cole slaw, and the Michelangelo, whose recipe consisting of fresh mozzarella, arugula, and tomatoes is painstakingly painted on the ceiling.
From the dining room, you can watch the Mancino's chefs slide pizzas in and out of the brick oven, each pie emerging with a crispy golden crust. Though pizza is the main attraction, the chefs also assemble hearty sandwiches and whole-wheat pasta dishes, paired with Italian staples such as prosciutto di parma and freshly baked ciabatta bread.
Mancino's has exchanged the standard-issue red-checked tablecloths for crisp, white linens. Wall sconces and dangling pendant lights illuminate the restaurant's tastefully minimal dining room, the kind of place where the queen might celebrate her pizza-party jubilee.
Homemade meatballs nestle into piles of spaghetti under a blanket of fresh red sauce. Local produce tops crisp pizzas, and hot and cold sandwiches embrace fillings with locally procured bread. Here at Macchu Pizza & Tomato Pies, one wide window permits lots of light into the room, whose simple, spare decor allows the food to remain the centerpiece.
Junior's Pizza & Subs Kebab House?s menu celebrates the traditions of American, Italian, and Mediterranean food, and even features a number of Halal options. Pizzas are crafted with dough and sauce made fresh daily, and covered in 100% mozzarella cheese and toppings such as gyro meat and diced eggplant parm cutlets. Tzitziki sauce rests atop cheeseburgers and tucks into falafel pitas. A variety of pasta dishes and sandwiches?both hot and cold?are also offered on the eclectic menu. The eatery is open late and can deliver meals right to customers? front doors or seats in the jury box.
Serving up Italian/American food favorites?including spaghetti and meatballs, steaks, burgers, to seafood pasta?has been Pete's Tavern's calling since 1966. One of the eatery's more popular items, however, are an Italian twist on sliders. Created in the kitchen by owner Todd Simonds after a busy night, the mini burgers combine the first three things that the hungry Simonds could find: a meatball, a mozzarella-topped garlic knot, and marinara sauce. If meatballs aren't your thing, that's OK?you can swap them for sausages, eggplant, breaded chicken, or pepperoni.
