Serving fresh and speedy pizza across America since 1959, Little Caesar's has grown into a huge, international carryout phenomenon. The menu features pizzas with dough built from scratch that are made to order ($5.99 for a large one-topping). Toppings range from classic pepperoni and sausage to Canadian bacon and pineapple. Return as the conquering hero of your family and save your twins the trouble of hunting down bipedal mastodons by picking up one of Little Caesar's Hot-n-Ready pies ($5.99). Hot-n-Ready pizzas are available in pepperoni or cheese, and can be picked up any time without the need to order ahead. Fans of three-dimensional eats can try the Italian cheese bread combo ($4.99 including sauce) or chicken wings ($4.99) with a variety of sauces.
“Easy” may be in the name, but this restaurant’s inventive pizza combinations are anything but simple. The Bangkok pizza, for instance, arrives tableside topped with grilled chicken, stir-fried veggies, crushed peanuts, and a peanut Thai sauce, and the Beach Chair sports fresh mango-peach salsa, pineapple, and prosciutto under a portable sun. The creativity continues into dessert, when crusts hold gooey s’more fixings or daring heaps of Nutella, bananas, and caramel. And for those who prefer their crusts in more loaflike form, an array of subs and burgers can be customized to their hearts’ content.
When Chef Mike Richardi vacations in Italy, he takes the opportunity to learn recipes, seek out new flavors, and glean inspiration for Spazio's seasonal menus. Though the recipes change to incorporate new Mediterranean and Italian influences, they always feature housemade pastas and breads as well as market-fresh seafood. Previous menus have included grilled cuts of pork tenderloin and lamb as well as wood-fired pizzas with toppings from the kitchen's selection of nine meats, vegetables, and minerals.
If its name doesn't tip them off, visitors to Campanale's Restaurant need only glance at the menu to realize this place is Italian to its core. More than 10 specialty pizzas take up but a small slice of real estate on the menu and include the chicken fradiavlo loaded with hot cherry peppers and onions. The rest of the menu features familiar Italian favorites, including marsala and parmigiana, alongside dishes that are a bit harder to come by such as grilled swordfish and sirloin pizziola–a 16-ounce sirloin topped with mozzarella and spicy marinara sauce. For added convenience, Campanale's also has a gluten-free spread packed with many of its regular dishes.

Pizzigando Café's décor is as simple and welcoming as the food is flavorful. It features solid-colored tablecloths and soft, mauve walls. The team takes pride in the eatery's journey from a dream to a spot of churned-up earth to a fully established restaurant. They chronicle this progression with a series of photos on their website.
