Profile

Devoted to the classic Neapolitan Italian pizza, this family-owned spot is decked with rustic wooden tables and a TV hanging discreetly in the corner. But every seat has a view of the massive wood-burning oven imported from Naples, where it was made with compressed volcanic ash. Fluttering around the oven's mouth are Astoria's modern pizzaiolos spinning naturally rising sourdough, shuffling pies into and out of the flames. Each one is cooked for only 90 to 120 seconds, charring the crust slightly while retaining a soft, pillowy chew. There are plenty of options for toppings, like prosciutto, arugula, ricotta, and garlic, and it's hard to pass up standout choices like the Patatine, with Yukon potatoes, provolone cheese, leeks, and bacon. If you want a great take on an original, opt for the margarita. Fried treats (arancini, mozzarella frito) and a selection of salads round out the menu.
