The cobblestone streets of Lower Manhattan’s Tribeca neighborhood lead to trendy boutiques, galleries, small local businesses and numerous international dining venues. Among these eateries are those that offer Italian fare, including most everyone’s all-time favorite—pizza. Venture to any of these local favorites, and savor a taste of Italy. Buon appetito.
If you’re looking for some unique specialty pies, a visit to Saluggi’s Pizza on 325 Church Street is your answer. While the casual venue carries tasty slices of plain cheese pizza, meat lovers may want to sample their Italian Deli pie, which, just like the sandwich for which it’s named, comprises ham, salami and provolone, plus caramelized onions over a marinara sauce. The more adventurous veggie lovers may want a slice of the brussel sprout pizza with yes, roasted brussel sprouts, complemented by crispy bacon, caramelized onion and mozzarella. For a taste of gorgonzola, mozzarella and a mix of walnuts and onions, try their Blue pizza.
Of course, as with most Italian eateries, Saluggi’s serves up more than just pizza. The eggplant rollatini and shrimp parmesan entrees hit the spot.
Choose from among the tables inside, or dine al fresco by grabbing one of two tables outside during the warmer months.
