Every year I look forward to San Gennaro in Little Italy. Why? Well, itâ€™s not just because I love Italian food in general (and I do), but because I look forward to reconnecting with an old flame or two – some of the best pizza and manicotti Iâ€™m sure to have all year.
Now anyone who knows anything about San Gennaro understands that the majority of food served is from restaurants on Mulberry Street. That being said, if I was half as smart as I thought I was, I would remember, each year, to write down where I get this amazing pizza and manicotti so that I can visit the establishments throughout the year. But I donâ€™t. Instead Iâ€™m so overjoyed at finding this pizza and manicotti again that all rational thinking goes out the window and I grab my goods and find a spot to enjoy it.
Well, as I was heading to the subway after Sheckyâ€™sÂ Girls Night Out last week, I happened to look up at the right time and see a banner that read â€œPomodoro Pizzeria, â€˜Home of the Vodka Pie.â€™â€ Jackpot.
Why vodka pizza hasnâ€™t caught on with more pizzerias I simply do not understand. It jazzes up a traditional marinara slice with a slightly creamy and much to my delight, sliiiiightly spicy vodka sauce that just brings pizza to a whole new level. Whenever Iâ€™ve dragged people down to San Gennaro to try it theyâ€™re always a little skeptical that a seemingly â€œnormalâ€ slice of pizza could be so good. And Iâ€™m proud to report that I (along with the help of the pizza, of course) always prove them wrong.
Leave now, please, and get yourself a delicious slice of vodka pizza at Pomodoroâ€™s. Now, if I can only figure out where I get that outstanding manicottiâ€¦The Basics Name: Pomodoro Pizzeria Location:Â 51 Spring Street Who to take:Â Yourself, me, friends, coworkers, family, non-believers Price:Â I honestly donâ€™t remember what I pay because Iâ€™m always so excited to get the pizzaâ€¦Iâ€™m noticing a pattern that I black-out when presented with amazing food. Is this a problem? Overall: Well, if you got to the last line of this review, then I think you know that this is 5 stars, hands down.
