“Some day, and that day may never come, I will call upon you to do a service for me. ” – Don Corleone “The Godfather”
Well, The Big Ragu & Crew are here to do a service for you. Today, we share with you a place you may not know about. A kitchen that produces some great pizza, pasta and more. In other words, let the Food Adventure peeps be your consigliere on this one.
HERE’S THE SKINNY:
— Homemade dough everyday. This ensures not only fresh pizzas, but tasty pasta dinners.
— Amazing Specialty Pizzas. These are mafia boss of the menu. Deluxe toppings, and themed pizzas like the Taco Pie, Greek Pie, Steak Pie will make your day. There are many more unique creations with white or red pizza sauces.
— Calzones and Hoagie Sandwiches are the dark horse on the menu, and will “whack” your tastebuds.
— Unique menu items that only New Yorkers typically see, like Pepperoni Rolls and Sausage Rolls.
— Carryout is available, and they have Delivery Service as well.
— MANICOTTI: Served piping hot , this meal is liberal on cheese and sauce. It is absolutely delicious, and it is the Big Ragu’s favorite choice on the menu.
— TACO PIE: Corleone’s serves a great version of taco pizza. The fresh lettuce, olives and tomatoes make all the difference. Send your hitmen in for one of these babies.
— BUFFALO CHICKEN PIZZA: Tasty, tangy and even a kid pleaser. Again a good version of a unique pizza spin.
— WINGS: We were super surprised at how good the breaded wings were. They are crunchy, crispy and ready for dipping in your favorite sauce. Best of all, they are cooked all the way through !
— SPINACH CALZONE: Served with marinara, the key is again in the fresh dough. Filled with ricotta cheese (like a real calzone should be), it is a flavorful, filling meal.
The Eggplant Hoagie is a good sub, capesh? Did we mention it is a monster? So split one with your favorite wiseguy and see what all the fuss is about.
The Wedgie: Want a Food Adventure in a plate? Try a Wedgie! No it is not the “grundy” you used to give your classmates. It is a calzone with no ricotta cheese or tomato sauce. It is cooked and then topped with lettuce and onions. Call it an Italian version of the mini-super burrito and fagheddaboutit.
One warning, if you have a large group coming to Corleone’s, you definitely want to call ahead so they are properly prepared for your group of friends or paisans. Also, the wine and beer selections are limited, so beware if you are looking for something special to drink.
Now “youse guys got” some good direction from The Big Ragu on a little known secret. What’s not a secret is that practically all of the pizzas we have tried, during our numerous visits have been great. From the top your own, to the seafood pizza, it is up to you to find your own favorite. All we can do is lead you to the good stuff. Trust us, it’s the best pizza and pasta spot that you’ve never heard of. It is definitely a menu you can’t refuse…
