Pizzeria Del-Dio - Orlando
I stopped in with a friend last week after receiving a free pizza coupon (grand opening promo) and *OMG* the pizza was amazing! NY style crispy crust with perfectly seasoned sauce and good cheese (not the rubbery kind). My friend ordered a spinach calzone to go and later confessed that she ate half of it on the way home - she said it was 'fantastic'!!
Del-Dio has a full menu with all the traditional favorites: chicken parm, baked ravioli, and my personal favorite: fettucine alfredo! That's next on my list... can't wait to try it!
If you live in the Baldwin Park / Fashion Square Mall area, you owe it to yourself to check it out.
What can I say about my favourite Italian/Pizzeria Restaurant. I have been going to "Del Dio" since 1994. My first taste of John's Pasta E Faggoli converted me and I can't eat anyone's elses. Yes, I've tried others, but none can compare... It's a taste a bit of heaven! Then there's the Pizza... and anyone from NY, knows what a good NY Pizza should taste like... "Del Dio's" puts all the rest way out in left field... they hit a homerun all the time. And of course, their pasta entres, what can I say... from the Lasagnas, to every they prepare... The BEST of the Best... none can compare!
The new one on Colonial is the original owner of the one in Fern Park. The owner is John Delgardio. I think John sold the Fern Park one and it looks like he's reopened on Colonial. Del Dio has the best NY pizza in Orlando by far and John is a great guy. We were regulars of his place in Fern Park until he left. It's still good, but just not the same without John. I can't wait to hit the one on Colonial.
