The dough wizards at Papa John's hand toss circular masterpieces with original and thin crusts made from high-protein flour to support warm bouquets of toppings. Hand-cut produce crowns all of Papa John's pizzas, mingling with the sun-soaked sweetness of sauce made from fresh, California-grown tomatoes. By adhering to its brand promise of "better ingredients, better pizza," Papa John's grew from a back-tavern pizzeria into more than 3,500 restaurants within three decades' time, or the amount of time it takes to grow a single pizzeria from a small seed.

Uncle Andy's Pizza's kitchen crew crafts dough from scratch each day to serve as a base for traditional and deep-dish pizzas, which complement the carryout menu's sandwiches and finger fare. For square deep-dish, round traditional crust, or thin and crispy crust pies (thin crust available on small and large only) choose from small with six slices ($5.99+), medium with eight slices ($7.49+), large with 10 slices ($8.99+), x-large with 15 slices ($10.99+), and party tray with 30 slices ($19.99+). Round or rectangular crusts give shape to specialty pizzas ($9.99–$29.99), such as a bacon-cheddar-cheeseburger pie. Hungry digits deconstruct half slabs of barbecue ribs ($9.99) and stretch around 10 buffalo wings ($6.99) slathered in a choice of four sauces. The kitchen staff forms 16-inch grinders ($9.99) and beckon teeth to excavate the italian sub's salami, baked ham, and three-cheese blend. When not baking edible wheels, Uncle Andy's Pizza often holds fundraisers for local charities and helps out-of-work forks find jobs as staple removers.

Sila Italian Restaurant & Bar has been slinging up Italian-American classics for more than 50 years—practically an eternity in the restaurant industry. After all this time, Sila's pizza is still one of the most popular items on the menu, with chefs loading up thin and deep-dish crusts with traditional toppings of sausage and pepperoni, as well as gourmet alternatives such as eggplant and shrimp. They also tuck cheese inside manicotti noodles and toss meatballs and sauce atop submarine sandwiches. To pair with these stick-to-your-ribs creations, the bar pours red and white wines, soft drinks, and beers by the glass, pitcher, or wheelbarrow.

Via Nove specializes in the delectable fare predominantly cooked in southern and central Italy, saving taste receptors thousands in air-travel costs to Rome by bringing scintillating entrees to Michigan. Commence your culinary tour of the Italian motherland with an appetizer, such as tortellini ($7) stuffed with ricotta cheese and asparagus. Freshly made pasta headlines Via Nove's absorbing and moderately absorbent menu. Sample the spaghetti carbonara ($16), interspersed with Italian bacon and egg, or indulge in the petto di pollo Montecarlo ($19), a seared chicken breast sidekicked with sautéed zucchini. Via Nove's wine list is a veritable who's-who's of Type A grape bloods, with such bottles as a 2006 Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio ($39) and a 2002 del Vesuvio Lacrima Christi ($35) available for consumption. Those with special liquor requests can even email the bar manager, who'll attempt to concoct whatever specialty drinks amateur mixologists can conceive.

Friendly service, a vibrant, warm atmosphere, and an aromatic blend of home-cooked soul-food favorites and Italian dishes render SOHO Detroit a pleasant pit stop for gastronomes. Gargantuan portions emerge fresh-cooked upon ordering from the diverse menu. Clear your throat for the ribs a capella, which come slow-cooked in signature seasoning ($8.50 half-slab, $14 full slab) and can be nicely neighbored with a side like the homemade baked mac 'n' cheese ($4). For a customized Italian plate, build your own pasta dish with five choices of pasta; chicken, beef, shrimp, or meatballs; two veggies, such as tomatoes and peppers; and one of SOHO's sauces, which include marinara, picatta, marsala, and more ($8). Breakfast is served all day every day, including pancake holidays. Rev up your digestive centrifuge for the French-toast breakfast, which slathers warm syrup and honey butter over two thick slices adjacent to two eggs and your choice of turkey links, bacon, or sausage ($7). The attentive owners frequently stalk the floor to ensure satisfaction, and might recommend saving room for the toothsome cupcakes ($2.50).
