FASCATI CLOSED FOR ONE MONTH :: WHAT TO DO?
The FASCATI brothers on Henry Street have closed their wonderful Pizza Parlor and gone off to Italy for a month, as they do every year.
We usually call and order and pick up, as delivery arrives mushy, steaming in the cardboard Pizza box as it does. But that is the same with all Pizza delivery.
Is any other place as good? We like Grimaldi's, but the lines are ridiculous. IMO no food is worth waiting an hour or more standing on line.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Fleur, I'm surprised.
CH/CG foodie that you are, you should know about:
Sam's, old timer with renewed popularity
Lucali, newcomer with 99% positive reviews
and the sleeper of the year, Marco Polo to go.
Marco Polo to go is 3 blocks from Fascati and I say, is superior.
re: Larry Brooks
I have no quibble with your taste in pizza, just your geography! Marco Polo is over a mile from Fascati--MP on Court & Union, Fascati on Henry north of Clark. So, I'm guessing that no matter how close the quality, the convenience factor could be an issue for someone living in the North Heights.
My only suggestion in that area (albeit not so close either) is My Little Pizzeria on Court between State & Atlantic.
