The oldest and most popular neighborhood pizza joint near the Cultural District reopened after a significant renovation and expansion. Still very mom-and-pop in atmosphere, the new dining room is fresh and more welcoming. Try this: It’s hard to beat the classic Neapolitan-style pepperoni and Italian sausage pie, and there’s not a better price in town. Calzone and stromboli are dependable too. Stick-to-your-ribs goodness lies in the sumptuous chicken Parmesan sandwich, served on the perfect Italian roll—just crunchy at the edges and all soft warmth inside; ask for an extra side of marinara for dipping. Among pasta dishes (each one makes two servings), the best pick remains the chicken Murphy, chicken breast sautéed with mushrooms and cherry peppers in creamy sherry sauce, served over linguine with a side of garlic bread knots. Pro tip: There’s a drive-through window for grabbing a meal to go.
