For the most part, I’m a by the slice kinda guy. However every now and then I get a craving for a by the pie coal oven Pizza. When I saw that Don Antonia by Starita has lunch sized pies, it satisfied my craving while finding a new lunch spot in Midtown.
The menu offers quite a few to choose from but the Sausage with Pistachio (love pistachios:) Pesto caught my eye and had to have one. I got the 8″ lunch sized pie with a side salad of Arugula, Grape Tomatoes and Parmesan cheese. Though the pizza was petite, it was surprisingly filling.
Since I had a non-dining event around dinner time while there I grabbed a Sausage and Broccoli Rapini Panini for later. It was larger then expected and like the Pizza, great. Again that superior dough.
While I took my food to go, it is a pretty nice space inside with good sized copper topped bar. I’ll have to swing by again for lunch or maybe dinner to check out their cocktail list.
