Stromboli in the East Bay?

Anyone know of good stromboli in the East Bay?

Stromboli is a type of turnover filled with various cheeses, Italian meats or vegetables. The dough is Italian bread dough. Stromboli are similar to but distinct from calzones, as calzones are pockets of dough filled with meat, cheese and vegetables, and stromboli can contain the same ingredients but are rolled into an oblong loaf and sliced to serve.

  1. The dear departed Lola's in Albany made a very nice stromboli. If you are ever in the North Bay, Parry's in American Canyon makes a classic stromboli.

    Using Foodie Bytes, here's a bunch of places within 30 miles of SF with Stromboli on the menu. Most are on the Peninsula though.

    The closest in the East Bay are
    - New York Pizza @665 W. Tennyson Rd., Hayward, CA
    - Pizza Italia @3701 Peralta Blvd, Fremont, CA

    Don't know how good they are though.

    I'm a bit intrigued by Pizza Inn in Vallejo which has a cinnamon stromboli.
