Across from the bowels of Port Authority, Capizzi is an Italian owned and operated pizza restaurant with a wood burning oven. The owners are from Staten Island run La Bella there. The wood fired oven creates a searingly hot and delicious pie- period! The restaurant is decorated with vintage goodies like an old tv, working refrigerator and a picture of the I love Lucy crew in the bathroom. It is an adorably decorated place. The pizza is perfection! The margharita comes out of the oven dark not charred. Crust has a little chew, lovely mozzarella, sublime sauce and pieces of fresh basil. Love this pizza!
