“Try the Italiana Pizza!”

I can't believe I waited this long to try their pizza. I was turned on to this place by a coworker/friend who lives in Tampa. I'm not sure how she heard of this place, but she raves about the authenticity. She brought me a take out order of pepperoni pizza, garlic knots, and a cannoli (for dessert). I've been getting delivery (through Mobile Meals) from them ever since that day.

It appears to be the closest to a NY/NJ style pizza in this area. The crust is crispy, yet soft on the inside. The sauce is very simple and light. It even has bits of tomato in it, which makes it taste so fresh. It's definitely homemade. You don't even have to order extra cheese. My mother did that one time, and they gave us more than enough cheese (almost too much). I've since had the Italiana pizza which is a white pizza with garlic, tomato, spinach, mozzarella, and ricotta cheese. There was lots of that ricotta/mozzarella mixture oozing out with every bite. This is a true winner!

I'm also a big fan of their cannoli. The outer shell is fresh & crunchy, not chewy to the point of almost being stale. The filling appears to be piped into the shell at the time you order it. They also drizzle some Nutella on top of it. It's the perfect ending. They also make Zeppole (a fried dough sprinkled with powder sugar), which I plan to order next time.

The only negative thing that I can think of is that the pizza is more expensive than it's competitors. It's worth it in my opinion. Even my mother (who was raised in the Bronx) loves this pizza, and would rather pay the extra fee for Mobile Meals to deliver it. We're hooked. I'm looking forward to trying more things on their menu (including their classic Italian pasta dishes).

We have been here a number of times. We like going on Tuesday because they have a large pizza for $8.99. We have also had their philly cheese steak sub which was also delicious.

What a great tasting pizza and wonderful service.

If you can really tell the difference been good pizza and EXCELLENT pizza, then this is the place to go. It's a small eat-in space, but take-out is a good way to go. Not only is their pizza excellent, but they also offer pastas, salads and subs which are equally as good. Haven't had anything on their menu yet that I did not immensely enjoy. And...I consider myself a pizza aficionado!
