Piu Bella: Take A Trip To Sicily In The Heart Of Queens
Looking to take a trip to the Mediterranean this summer without leaving Astoria? Look no further than Piu Bella Pizza!
Opened in 2019, flavor is king at the family-owned establishment, with owner Antonio Giaimo even building the restaurant’s custom wood-burning oven himself. The dough is all made in-house daily with the tastiest imported flour, and Giaimo believes the key to his dishes’ success is the use of delicious San Marzano tomatoes.
It’s no wonder how Piu Bella has become such a hit, serving the flavors of Giaimo’s home country of Sicily to those in the area. Located at 79-16 21st Ave., the restaurant boasts a wide-range of delicious dishes for all palates; from soups and fresh salads tp specialty items such as spaghetti carbonara and veal parmesan. Enjoy with one of Piu Bella’s signature cocktails, such as the delicious espresso martini or classic Aperol spritz to really enjoy the flavors of each selection.
However, the standout item has to be Piu Bella’s pizzas available for customers as pies or by the slice. Each pie is 12 inches, which is ideal to feed up to 4 people. Piu Bella’s most popular pie? The signature Capricciosa, which consists of prosciutto cotto, artichoke, mushrooms, fresh mozzarella, EVOO, wurstel, and of course, San Marzano tomatoes.
Calzones are another popular choice amongst customers looking to enjoy something on the more filling side. Options range from the classic, stuffed with ricotta and mozzarella cheeses to the delicious calzone verde, stuffed with spinach, ricotta, and mozzarella. All four calzone options are served with a side of Piu Bella’s pomodoro sauce.
Additionally, those who want to take their love for this neighborhood favorite to the next level, Piu Bella also offers catering for customers’ next party or event. Enjoying a taste of Sicily in the comfort of your own home? Yes, please!
