Select Local Merchants

For more than two decades, the mom-and-pop operation at Bella Pizza has fed passersby with handmade Italian pies, sub sandwiches, fresh salads, and saucy pastas. The smells of fresh stuffed and Sicilian-style pizzas waft through the cozy space, which evokes the homey, casual ambience of a neighborhood eatery. And Italian cheeses run a thread through the extensive menu of hearty Italian-American fare, from casseroles of baked chicken parmigiana to lunches of meatball heroes and golden-brown calzones.

Sicilian-style pizzas are the name of the game at Bella Vita Pizzeria & Restaurant. Available by the slice or pie, the eatery's specialty pizzas range from the traditional (margarita and meat lovers) to the inventive (Nutella dessert-style pies and New York Ranch on thin focaccia). Aside from pizza, there are still plenty of other menu options: pastas, seafood dishes, focaccia paninis, and calzones, to name only a few.

At Foschini's, more than 25 types of pizza come and go from the searing brick oven, most bearing heaps of specialty ingredients. That's not the case for the eatery's signature margarita pie. This simple pizza packs only a trio of ingredients, blending San Marzano tomatoes, mozzarella, and basil leaves into one of Italy's most famous flavor combinations. Simple or complex, the pizzas are just one stop along the restaurant's tour of Italian cuisine. The menu also includes paninis, pastas, salads, and entrees that end with "parmigiana" (Italian for "permanent giants"). No matter what they order, diners often finish their meals the right way: with a cup of bracing coffee and a slice of tiramisu or cheesecake.
