A portmanteau of “mozzarella” and “pepperoni” gave Marvin Mozzeroni’s its playful name, but the origins of the restaurant itself are rooted in New York. The pizzeria was founded by two Rochester natives in 2004 as Starving Marvin's Pizza before they changed the name in 2007 when they turned their single eatery into a franchise. To this day native New Yorkers own and operate the five locations found throughout the state, including their two new locations in Henrietta and Greece.

The emphasis here is on their numerous specialty pizzas, baked in a brick oven and made fresh daily with hand-tossed dough. They come with a thick or thin crust and homemade red or white sauce, and can be ordered whole or by the slice. The menu also features other Italian food, including calzones and chicken parmigiana, as well as a mix of American-style classics such as hoagies, cheeseburgers, wings with homemade sauce and bleu cheese, and hot dogs. Those with food allergies can opt for gluten-free pizza.

An on-site organic garden provides The Gate House’s executive chef Kristen Flores-Fratto with fine, fresh ingredients to create a tasty lineup for her menu. Settle down in the cozy cookhouse, and search through the small plates for a suitable starter, such as house-made Buffalo-style chicken tenders, which arrive still asleep on a pile of fries and blue-cheese fondue ($9.50). A selection of half-pound burgers, whose hand-pressed patties are fashioned with premium chuck, entertains food fans with options such as The Wease, garnished with smoked gouda, fried onions, and horseradish steak sauce ($10). The Gate House's 700-degree wood- fire oven churns out traditional Neapolitan pizzas that grace tables with delicious circularity. Guide your chompers to The Park Ave., a savory sine qua non of the pizza world that tops its goaty cheese with grilled veggies, olive oil, hummus, and rosemary ($10.50). After main- course completion, customers can venture into masticative overtime with a root-beer float ($5.50), a peanut-butter milk shake ($5), or New York–style cheesecake served with fresh strawberries ($5.50).

Strings of twinkling lights glow above Roam Cafe’s cozy tables and pale-green walls, illuminating guests as they dig into fresh, crisp salads, pizza tossed from hand-made dough, and paleo diet-friendly options. The long bar gleams in the sunlight streaming in from a wall-sized window, and patrons sip espresso and munch on Sunday brunch. Brick arches lend the interior a hint of roman architecture, an outdoor patio welcomes alfresco merriment during warming months, and diners wash down house-made meatballs with cold beer or warm tomato sauce.

Bertino's Pizza and Italian Food stocks a tasty menu chock-full of fresh ingredients, old family recipes, and mouth-watering meals. The breakfast pizza ($12.50 for medium, $14.99 for large) features scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, peppers, onions, and cheese smothered in white pizza sauce, and the red sauce, mozzarella, ham, and pineapple on the Hawaiian pizza ($12.49 for a medium, $15.49 for a large) make bellies want to do a happy hula. Play artist by creating a crusty chef-d'oeuvre with more than 20 available toppings, such as feta cheese, artichokes, and steak, or by bringing glitter and finger-paints to decorate each pizza. Transform tired phalanges into felicitous jazz hands with Bertino's finger-friendly appetizers, such as spaghetti and meatball rolls stuffed with spaghetti, meatballs, and sauce ($6.99), as well as fried mushrooms ($3.95) or mac 'n' cheese bites ($6.50). Munchers on the run can dine on portable hot subs ($6.99 for regular, $8.25 for large), sandwiches, and burgers from the grill ($2.50–$5.95), or by taking advantage of Bertino's free delivery inside city limits.

Riley Greider is the mind, hands, and sweet teeth behind Sugar Mountain Bake Shoppe, a gourmet bakery specializing in cupcakes. More than 128 flavors rotate across the shop’s menu in groups of 13 to 20 each day, baked daily in small batches from fresh ingredients.

With such an enormous repertoire of recipes, the cupcake case has room for classics such as carrot cake alongside fancier flavors such as cinnamon french toast and cherry crème brûlée—not to mention the decidedly outlandish, such as loaded baked potato and Game Day Chili. While retaining a home-baked look, many of the cakelets wear elaborate toppers of sprinkles, frosting swirls, or fruit. All this creativity won the shop the title of Best Cupcakes in City Newspaper’s 2011 Readers’ Choice poll.
