IMG_2062

UPDATE  10/11/2014

We ordered a pizza for take out and it had a thin crust and it was fantastic! Even better than the old Napoli’s pizza.

 

Viola’s Pizza, Pasta and Seafood has opened in the old Napoli’s Pizza location. Under new ownership and with a bit of remodeling they are open for business.  They have reversed the bar so it looks out towards the street now and have given it a face lift and comfortable stools with backs. If you’re a local you know what we’re talking about. The whole place has gotten a fresh coat of paint and new tables, chairs and décor. It looks good!

 

 

They have a lot of the old familiar favorites on the menu from Napoli along with a few new additions.

 

IMG_2061We stopped in for the grand opening to try a pizza. Napoli’s was always one of my favorite pizza joints so I have been waiting patiently for the big day. The pie was good but it was definitely different than the Napoli pie. It has a much thicker chewier crust making the sauce and cheese taste less prominent. The owner mentioned they are working on keeping the thin crust of the past, so that may change once they have thrown their share of dough. As my grandmother from Naples said, “pizza dough has a mind of its own… you must learn to work with it, not against it.” I never did learn how to throw dough.

 

 

 

 

IMG_2057The couple sitting next to us ordered the Fried Calamari. They said it was fantastic and they loved that they also fried the banana peppers that came with it.

We stopped in early and saw plenty of familiar local faces there for Happy Hour. Happy Hour specials are $1.00 off draft beer and $1.50 off house wine.

If you have eaten here, please let us know what you think. we’ll keep you posted on our next pie.

Best Pizza in Historic Downtown

It’s Pizza Time Baby!-

If I have to get a pizza downtown, Pizza Time is the place I go. Located on St. George Street in historic downtown is a gem of a pizzeria. I remember several years ago peeking my head in the door, shouting to the owner, “do you make a good Cannoli?” “THE BEST,”  he hollered back at me. I told him I was half Italian and I expected my cannoli to be traditional. His exact words were, “you won’t be disappointed,” and I wasn’t!

 

  I have been going there ever since, for their thin crust, New York style pizza and their delicious authentic, Cannoli. They also do a Sicilian crust, however I have not tried it. It’s a great place to grab a quick slice or a whole pie. “Mangia! Mangia!”

Review of the New Mellow Mushroom in St Augustine FL

Everyone has been asking us what we think of the new Mellow Mushroom in Saint Augustine, Florida.  It has become a “Locals Favorite” for sure.

 

The atmosphere here is colorful, creative and funky with an industrial feel. It has a good vibe, a huge bar and plenty of TVs to watch sports. There are tables indoors and out, in all shapes and sizes, to fit even the largest of families or groups of friends. It seemed to be kid friendly and there were plenty of little ones in line waiting for a table Read More→
