Joe & Pat Pizzeria and Restaurant
Open since 1960, this family-run pizzeria in Staten Island is a neighborhood favorite for its near-perfect thin-crust pizza. At night, the place is packed with families getting their pizza fix and during the day, it's equally crowded with nearby workers taking their slices to go. The pizza dough is made from a secret family recipe, and though the margherita is always a reliable choice, the vodka pizza is a crowd favorite. In case pizza doesn't cut it for you, Joe & Pat's also serves Italian-American staples like stuffed shells, veal parmesan, and baked ziti.
