La Villa Pizzeria
La Villa’s First location opened in Howard Beach Queens and is still operated by its founding family, whose Neapolitan-born mother Maurina rises early to prep culinary goodness in its kitchen. The Neapolitan-born mother of the restaurant's current owner is known to make sure her pomodoro sauce has the right amount of olive oil and even hop behind the line to help sauté during the dinner rushes. This love of food runs throughout the Maurina's family, who opened the family's first restaurant back in, 1955 not far from where their Park Slope location currently stands.
The Zagat-rated restaurant has thrived since opening in 1982, enough to expand to three locations. Inside their kitchens, chefs stoke wood-burning ovens to bake more than 16 varieties of pizzas, including Neapolitan- and Sicilian-style pies dressed with whole-milk mozzarella and a specialty San Marzano tomato-and-basil sauce. Each location has a spacious dining room where patrons can split appetizers of housemade meatballs and dig into plates of sautéed Nature veal marsala.
