Though the particulars of Duke's pizza recipe remain shrouded in secrecy, its resulting flavors—thin, crispy crust, sweet sauce, and obscure toppings such as bacon bits and chicken Alfredo—are practically public domain.

An extensive lunch buffet lines the walls amid the glow of flat-screen TVs, allowing patrons to imagine that sports commentators are narrating the scoops of soup and pasta when they breathlessly exclaim, "Commercial break!"
Founded by Pino Montes, an Italian immigrant from the coast of Sicily, Pino’s Authentic Italian and Pizza Restaurant bids benvenuti to belligerent bellies with authentic, home-cooked dishes. Peruse the dinner menu before pursing lips around a forkful of spaghetti alla carbonara, in which pieces of smoked pancetta and parmesan cheese glide their way through a labyrinth of white-wine-laden noodles ($12.95). Meat admirers can opt for the sautéed veal scaloppine saltimbocca, injected with sherry and adorned with prosciutto, provolone, and cream ($20.95). Midday diners can choose similarly succulent lunch fare, such as an authentic pizza topped with oregano and prosciutto ($10.95), or a panini that, like Chef Boyardee’s Christmas tree, is topped with meatballs ($6.95).
