During prohibition, mobsters would congregate in pizza parlors to clandestinely discuss their shady activities and conceal the fact most still lived in their parent's basement. Secretly satisfy hunger with today's Groupon: for $14, you get $30 worth of stone-oven pizza, small bites and authentic Italian dishes at MAFIAoZA's.
MaFIAoZA's is based after a 1920's New York pizzeria and neighborhood pub and pays homage to the robust simplicity of Italian cooking by crafting fresh, seasonal dishes for lunch and dinner. Un-cage creativity and build your own pie ($2.75/slice, $9.75/12", $13.75/18"), or try a specialty pizza such as the Last Request ($19/$26), a colorful medley of black olives, pepperoni, salami, Italian sausage, Portobello mushrooms, sundried tomatoes, garlic, crumpled pages of romance novels, green peppers, red onion and jalapeños. The Consigliere ($12) is a hearty helping of meat lasagna sure to quench a rumbling appetite, and the caprese salad ($7 for small, $11 for regular) is an affable mountain of homemade mozzarella, tomatoes, and a chiffonnade of basil drizzled in a balsamic reduction. The welcoming eatery also often features live music to placate ears that are jealous of the stomach’s bliss.
- Good atmosphere, and quality food makes Mafiaoza's a good place to "meet and eat". Family friendly, there is a dough bar to keep the young ones occupied while you enjoy a nice meal… Very cool that you can order by the slice, with a WIDE variety of toppings. – David R., Yelp
- I just experienced Mafiaoza's two for Tuesdays and let me tell you that place is fun. Not only was the bar staff great but the pizza is the best anywhere in town. – nichwd, Urbanspoon
