Zucca was founded by a trio of forlorn New York natives who longed for a taste of a thin, crispy-crusted, Staten Island–style pie. The results are presented on a menu dense with Italian delights. Starters such as crispy fried risotto and mozzarella balls ($7) and fresh bruschetta ($6.25) make satisfying meal bases for the award-winning pizzas. Pies are offered in two sizes—personal portions ($8+) or 18" discs ($13+)—and come customizable with more than 25 toppings, including bacon ($2), eggplant ($2), and roasted red peppers ($3). Specialty pies such as the expo-winning victory pie ($19 for 18" pie), a Margherita pizza with parsley sausage, mushrooms, and shaved parmesan, will tame topping negotiations, while hand-held calzones ($7–$9) and the extensive selection of popular pasta dishes ($10–$15) and entrees ($13–$21) are sure to delight.
Though they emerge from the oven smothered with attractive toppings ranging from banana peppers to feta cheese, the tastes of Pizza Capri's pies always emerge from their foundations of housemade dough and housemade marinara sauce. Between slices or bites from meatball subs doused in the same marinara sauce, diners sip domestic and imported beers or soft drinks such as iced tea brewed daily.
Around the eatery, sports flicker across flat-screen TVs and guests compete in weekly games of bar bingo, team trivia, and texas hold'em. An amusement area includes pinball, Silver Strike Bowling, and Golden Tee machines for diners who aren't skilled enough to manually play golf inside the restaurant.
For nearly 20 years, G'Angelo's has mesmerized mouths with its mellifluous menu of pizzas, subs, pastas, and more. Each day, its hot oven births pies ($4.99–$10.99) teeming with fresh toppings ($1–$1.50 each). Sink fangs into one of G'Angelo's specialty pies ($9.99–$15.99) such as the house special, a symphonic spread of meats and veggies, or enter the produce-permeated veggie, its lush dough villa furnished with mushrooms, onions, green peppers, cheese curtains, and tomatoes. Meanwhile, G'Angelo's family lasagna dinner includes a choice of four toppings and comfortably feeds four estranged relatives ($15.99). Diners fearful of silverware can hand-hold a wide selection of calzones ($4.99, $.79 for toppings) and subs ($3.99–$6.50).
Pizza and pasta headline the menu at Pisano's where, house-made marinara sauce simmers on the stove waiting to smother piles of spaghetti and submerge calzones. At the same time, the kitchen crew tosses dough by hand to craft pizzas that give diners a more authentic taste of New York than licking their televisions when Law & Order is on. Diners can enjoy their meals indoors or on the covered patio where they can warm their toes by the fire pit on chilly nights.
