CiCi’s Pizza combines the variety of a family-friendly buffet with the thrill of bottomless pizza. Each pie is crafted with dough made from scratch daily and then slathered with homemade marinara and showered with toppings ranging from traditional pepperoni and Italian-style sausage to creative combinations including buffalo chicken and mac 'n' cheese, resulting in more than 28 signature pizzas. The buffet is stocked with a plethora of fresh pastas, such as cavatappi noodles with classic marinara or alfredo sauce, as well as fully customizable signature salads. After they've feasted on savory options, diners can revisit the buffet for dessert including freshly baked brownies, slices of apple pizza, and cinnamon rolls drizzled with icing—or they can eat dessert first, thereby tearing an irreparable hole in the space-time continuum.

Formerly known as Casa Mimi, Casa Perfetto has served up family-style Italian cuisine since 1967, when Frances and Antimo "Mimi" Perfetto opened the restaurant with brother and chef Giuseppe Perfetto. Originally determined to become the first pizzeria shaped like a Jetsons house, Casa Perfetto has trained its focus on Italian comfort food that sings gentle ninna nannas before tucking diners into sheets of warm lasagna. The menu reads almost like a family album, with photos of relatives adjacent to their favorite dishes, like the pasta Caruso, a heaping dish of chicken livers, mushrooms, and marinara sauce over cappellini ($14.95). Fluffy pillows of handmade gnocchi come tossed in carbonara, sprinkled with mozzarella and flanked by tender meatballs ($14.95). Fresh chops and seafood can be had for $14.95–$29.95. Picky eaters will appreciate pasta alla vostro gusto (pasta to your taste, starting at $9.95), which lets them combine cappellini, linguine, or rigatoni with their choice of sauce, vegetable, and meat options to build the ideal pasta mate.
Fat Billy's pizza-crafting professionals sate hungry hoards with an extensive menu of saucy spheres, meaty entrees, and dough-swaddled sandwiches. Muffle the moans of stomach-dwelling teenaged turtles with a starter of breaded mushrooms ($2.99) before tongue diving into a cheese pizza ($5.99 small, $11.99 extra large)—customizable with an array of toppings ($.99–$2.99 each)—or one of the many specialty pies ($9.99 small, $15.99 extra large), such as the philly cheesesteak or the barbecue-soused baja chicken.
The first thing you want to do with a hot pizza is dig in, but if you're so inclined, go ahead and count the pepperoni first. Donatos promises that every pepperoni pizza, sized large or larger, will have at least 100 slices of lean pepperoni spread across the pie. That's just one of the many flourishes that Donatos, founded in 1963, has used to distinguish itself from the rest. There's also its Edge to Edge promise: a guarantee that every pie will be loaded from one end to the other with toppings, from said pepperoni slices to family-recipe sausage to fresh, hand-cut veggies. Donatos' formula seems to have worked, as the once small Italian eatery now spans the nation with more than 150 locations.
Beyond its classic pizzas, Donatos offers many specialty pies, including its chicken spinach mozzarella and Mariachi beef. Each is framed with naturally smoked, aged provolone cheese on top and cornmeal-encrusted dough, from a 50-year old recipe, below. Donatos even offers gluten-free pizzas on its signature Udi's crust. For those searching out other Italian fare, the menu features robust stromboli stuffed with meats and cheeses, and hearty subs. And for dessert, Donatos creates its warm cinnamon brick-street bread, an oven-baked loaf of artisan pull-apart bread with cinnamon spread, streusel, and vanilla icing.
Like any great Italian meal, made-from-scratch dishes at Spaghetti Warehouse are created from family recipes passed down for generations. Using fresh ingredients ranging from ricotta, romano, and mozzarella cheeses to house-made tomato sauce and Italian sausage, chefs labor for up to three days to prepare batches of their 15-layer signature lasagna from scratch. The menu also offers perfectly al dente pasta, bottomless soups, and 12-layer chocolate cakes to share with family and friends.
It?s that feeling of togetherness that people love about Spaghetti Warehouse, a feeling that is only enhanced when the drinks start flowing and the air is punctuated by the sounds of laughter as kids play retro games, such as The Claw prize-grabbing machine. To reach their table, guests commonly have to step through two doors: the front door of the restaurant and the door of the antique trolley parked inside. Since its inception in 1972, the Italian eatery has merged the functions of kitchen and museum. Artifacts such as grandfather clocks, factory flywheels, and circus billboards surround diners as they delve into Italian creations.
