Abitino’s – Multiple locations, NYC

by PizzaSnobo on November 14, 2011

Abitino’s has half a dozen locations in NYC, including JFK Airport (terminal 8). They are dedicated to typical pizzeria fare, including calzones, heros and pasta. Kind of a of a mini-Sbarro’s. Unfortunately, at the Upper East Side location, the pizza wasn’t much better. [more]

by PizzaSnobo on November 10, 2011

It’s refreshing to find a pizzeria on a street in NYC, rather than on the avenue. Gino’s on the Upper East Side accomplishes this, in part because they are not just a pizzeria, but a restaurant as well – kind of like Delizia. [more]

Dean’s has three Manhattan locations. They have a very similar upscale feel to Patsy’s. Dean’s uses a gas-fired brick oven and boasts large menu. [more]

Buffalo La Pizzeria – Washington, DC

by PizzaSnobo on October 20, 2011

Yet another below average slice joint in Washington DC. Buffalo is located on 18th Street NW, close to U Street so it is a little removed from the ridiculousness that can be Adams Morgan on the weekends. [more]

Famous Luigi’s – Washington, DC

by PizzaSnobo on October 18, 2011

Walking into Famous Luigi’s is like stepping into the past – a red checker tablecloth kind of place that is reminiscent of thousands of local Italian eateries. Famous Luigi’s has been around since 1943, and that alone is reason enough to not change a thing. [more]

Graffiato – Washington, DC

by PizzaSnobo on October 13, 2011

Graffiato, brought to you by Top Chef contestant Mike Isabella is a welcome spot in DC’s Chinatown, on the quiet side of the Verizon Center. Getting a table can be tough – even when the restaurant is empty and even if you are dining with a pregnant woman. [more]
