A brick oven, a collection of classic Italian recipes, and a slew of fresh ingredients. Those are a few of the things that make meals special at Boccone Pizzeria & Ristorante, but they're far from the only ones. Many come simply for the family-friendly atmosphere, knowing they can relax and share laughs across plates of linguine and veal marsala. Arguably, one of the main focuses in the kitchen is on specialty pizzas that range from the traditional Grandma pie to the inventive Seafood Oreganata with scampi sauce, shrimp, and clams.
Cooks at Michael Anthony’s Pizza kick out authentic Italian favorites such as chicken, veal, and seafood dishes as well as pasta and pizza.

Pastas such as penne, rigatoni, and six-cheese pasta purses are prepared with sun dried tomatoes, prosciutto, and vegetables tossed in cream sauces or baked with sausage and peppers. The kitchen also kicks out pizzas, including a gluten-free variety, as well as American dishes such as chicken cordon bleu and NY strip steaks. On Friday nights, guests can enjoy live entertainment while they dine.
