I have always loved going to DeNicola's Italian restaurant for one thing, the pizza. My favorite is the mushroom and olive pie. There's nothing like it around the city. First of all their tomato sauce is wonderful, just spicy enough to enhance the other flavors on the pizza and DeNiclola's puts plenty of it on.
Next, the toppings. They pile on the fresh mushrooms and olives so that there is so much flavor that you just can't stop eating. They make their crust great too. Theirs is thick and very flavorful. The portions are massive, so if you're one of those pizza for breakfast lovers like I am, you will have plenty to wrap up and take home. It's a real home style restaurant, a little old fashion, with the red and white checkered table cloths and the chianti bottles by the register. I really recommend this restaurant for a date as well as for families.
I started going to De'Nicolas as a young child and it has been a family favorite ever since. We love the pizza with tons of toppings and the fettucine is to die for. It's family friendy and you get a lot of food for very little dough. I've been eating at Denicola's for years and will continue for many years to come.
