Teenagers idolize pizza due to its portable nature and refusal to stay in a box, man. Eat your way to independence with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of pizza and Italian fare at Jazzeria Piccolo Pizza & Pasta in Ridgefield.
Owner Matt Criscuolo follows family recipes and lessons learned on yearly trips to Amalfi, Italy, to ensure the menu at Jazzeria overflows with authentic pizza and Italian fare. Hungry tongues and napkins long to soak up the juicy tomatoes and aromatic cheese of the bruschetta di gorgonzola ($9.99) or bubbling mozzarella coating the garlic bread with melted cheese ($4.99). The Calloway pizza ($10.99–$16.99) decorates a bed of mozzarella with peeled tomato, bacon, and basil, and the Jazzeria special ($12.99–$17.99) asks a meaty trio of sausage, meatballs, and pepperoni to dance across palates intertwined with a hearty spread of onions, mushrooms, and peppers. The restaurant also compiles gluten-free pies ($19.99) for diners who have severed all wheat-based relationships, and the entree selection covers classics such as veal parmigiana ($17.99) and chicken marsala ($17.99), which is cooked the old-fashioned way: by an explosion at the center of the universe. To compliment meals, Jazzeria Piccolo Pizza & Pasta also dishes out the smooth tunes of live jazz seven nights a week.
Though Jazzeria Piccolo Pizza & Pasta sometimes features discounted prices online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Jazzeria Pizza & Pasta
Jazzeria Pizza & Pasta owner Matt Criscuolo Jr. has been hanging out at pizzerias since he was 6 years old. After emigrating from Italy, his father opened a pizzeria where the entire family worked, giving little Matt an up-close look at the business of turning his mom’s recipes into feasts fit for the old country. Inspired both by his family’s livelihood and his passion for jazz, Criscuolo began his own pizzeria, where he now puts his more than 30 years of pizza-slinging experience to work each day.
Inspired both by family recipes and lessons he learns on his yearly trips to Amalfi, Italy, Jazzeria Pizza & Pasta’s dishes derive their flavors from authentic Italian ingredients. Hand-tossed pizza dough transforms into pies including pesto pizza or the pescatore pizza topped with a trio of baby clams, roasted garlic, and bacon. Diners can enjoy dishes named after jazz greats—such as Lady Day’s Bolognese pasta—or grab a calzone to stuff in their pockets for later. In addition to housing tasty bites of the Mediterranean, Jazzeria locations live up to their name with live jazz performances three times a week.
