Though Gino Bonetti has lived in Florida for nearly a quarter-century, he has every right to call his pizza New York-style. The Sicilian-born restaurateur lived in Queens for 30 years, during which time he fell hard for the city's versions of his native Italian cuisine. Since 1993, Gino, his wife, Arlene, and their two children have operated Gino's NY Style Pizzeria, where chefs prepare both Neapolitan- and Sicilian-inspired pies. Whichever style they choose, customers can have their pizzas topped with anything from meatballs and eggplant to premium toppings such as prosciutto and artichoke hearts.

In addition to pizza, the cooks also whip up hot and cold subs brimming with veal cutlets or cappicola, as well as use traditional recipes to prepare a lineup of baked pasta dishes, including a lobster ravioli with homemade vodka sauce. In good Italian tradition, they bolster their myriad of chicken, veal, or seafood entrees with a hearty side of pasta and garlic rolls. Gino's also provides catering services, as well as can help plan complete events with recommendations for local equipment rental, videographers, and linen providers.
