Le Sorelle- Boca Raton, FL

The first time Jon and I had seen my parents and his dad was four months after our wedding! Although facetime and phone calls work, it was great to reconnect in person in Florida :). We tried Le Sorelle, a new Italian restaurant that opened just down the street from their house and already had positive pizza reviews. We shared a plethora of dishes, from pizza to pasta to yummy desserts! Greatly enjoyed this spot and my mom loves it so much she plans to make it their new local restaurant! Great work! We appreciated the family-run business and were pleased with the pies.

Top that pie!!

Ray’s- Times Square, NY

Grabbed a post-theatre slice on my visit to NYC! Not my favorite slice, but had to visit! The crust left much to desire but otherwise was sufficient to satisfy my hunger :)

Ribalta- NYC, New York

Loved walking into this high-ceiling sports-viewing family-feeling restaurant! I visited Ribalta at 12th and 48th in NYC and had a lovely meal at the bar. The restaurant was packed on a Saturday afternoon in advance of a big Italy soccer game. I enjoyed my glass of bubbly and perfectly executed neapolitan pie. Really enjoyed the layout of this place! Would love to go back and seems like a great place to visit and relax with a group!

Prince Street Pizza- SOHO, New York

One of my FAVORITE slices ever was experienced in NY at Prince Street pizza. If I wasn’t trying to have a well-rounded pizza experience, I would have been back for seconds & thirds. The walk-up shop at Prince Street pizza puts out some amazing square slices. The mini cup pepperonis were glorious and it was the best combination of crunchy edges with magical doughy innards :). I cannot recommend this place highly enough. And it’s perfectly located in a trendy area. Walk, don’t run, to this joint.

L&B Spumoni Gardens- Brooklyn, NY

Adventures through my 2016 NYC trip were highlighted by a visit to the institution L&B Spumoni Gardens. The rainy day didn’t stop us from visiting, and it wasn’t too busy that Friday afternoon :) We had some sicilian square slices and thin pie slices as well. I didn’t love the sweet sauce, but loved the crunchy square. Glad I got to try it, along with some famous Spumoni, but it won’t be a place I rush back to… just not my top spot!
