Three neon words—pizza, pasta, and hero—illuminate this corner where Carnegie Hill meets Spanish Harlem. Beyond the green awning canopying a wall of windows is a modest space just big enough for six tables engulfed by a deli counter, a pizza oven, and refrigeration cases for sandwiches and soda. True to the signage, pizza comes first, with 24 types of slice ranging from ricotta to Capricciola to the spicy Mexican. Pastas are less noteworthy, although like the heroes (overstuffed with meatballs, chicken, or eggplant), they’re also doused in the signature sauce. Delivery is speedy during the week. Not so much on the weekends.
