We had some awesome pasta and pizza at this wonderful takeout/restaurant called Franco’s Metro. All the food is made to order, especially the personal brick oven pizzas. We liked Franco’s Metro so much that we had it two weekends in a row. The 1st weekend we ordered the Margherita Pizza with the Spaghetti with Matrigiana sauce. The Matrigiana sauce was a basic tomato based sauce infused with onions. The 2nd weekend we ordered the Spinach Ricotta Pizza with the Pesto Linguine.

The pizza was incredibly good the crust bordering on crispy and chewy. The pasta was also good with the pesto being a little better than the tomato based sauce in my opinion. The meatballs were bready and very soft. This place is highly recommended.

After craving for some Italian, my friend Gloria and I decided to go to Scottadito Osteria Toscana, which was located in Park Slope. It’s a very cozy Italian restaurant and perfect for dates! Service was quite attentive and the environment was very pleasant.

Gloria ordered the handmade spinach gnocci with sage and butter sauce and I ordered a dish of penne with plum tomatoes, zucchini, and eggplant. All the ingredients were organic and fresh. Along with our dishes, we also ordered a couple of glasses of rosé wine (totally forgot the name but it was awesome).

I would definitely come back again next time. Perhaps for their brunch special on weekends– unlimited mimosas, champagne, and coffee! Yum.

John and I decided to have a cheese pizza pie delivered to his house in Palisades Park, New York. After I consumed a full slice, I asked John, “Is this the best Jersey has got to offer in terms of pizza?” His reply was, “Everyone says their pizza is great.”

Well, I highly disagree! The crust was so hard and dry, it was unbearable to eat. I’m not much of a crust person but I would like to eat the whole darn thing if I’m hungry. I do not recommend unless you are in the area and desperate for anything that’s opened late at night.

Well, at that point, I was glad I lived in New York City because that’s where you should go for an awesome slice of pizza. 🙂

This is my second time eating here. The first time I ate here, I was very content with the taste of the pizza and quality of the crust. The second time also did not disappoint. I had the ricotta spinach white pizza and my girl had the chicken tomato ricotta pizza. Both were amazing. The crust was expected from a pizza joint in Brooklyn.

The zeppole’s we had were also very good…but how can you mess up on confection sugar dumped on fried dough? You can’t.

Highly recommended!

Ordered a pie to share with co-workers at work. I had to get ground beef because one of my co-workers did not eat pork products. I ordered up this concoction to make sure everyone was happy with the toppings. The pizza came out great. Linwood Pizza makes some great pizza!

One of my good friends and I decided to grab lunch at Il Colosseo, an Italian restaurant located in Bensonhurst and is known for their oven brick pizza. Their menu had a variety of toppings to choose from: eggplant, ham, mushrooms, artichokes, etc. The personal pizzas were a bit too big for us…I think we could have shared a pie. Because we planned on going to a museum afterwards, we ended up stuffing ourselves so that we wouldn’t have to carry our takeout boxes. The price for each pie costs around $10.

I ordered the ham/tomato sauce pie while my friend decided to get the artichoke/mushroom with tomato sauce pie. Fresh out of the oven, the thin crunchy crust and hot juicy toppings came out to absolute perfection. I would have to say that this pizza is as authentic as NYC can get!
