Don Antonio By Starita Restaurant Review

: Take one of the world’s most legendary pizza makers. Add one of his most successful students. Stir it all together in New York City. The result is Don Antonio By Starita. The lovechild of Antonio Starita, famed for his pies in Naples at his eponymous pizzeria, and Roberto Caporuscio, the pizzaiolo at the Big Apple’s acclaimed Kesté Pizza & Vino, this Hell’s Kitchen restaurant is like a pizza lover’s last wish. The menu deviates from the rigid Neapolitan line-up by offering more than just a margherita and a marinara. In fact, there are dozens of pies available: from red sauce to pizza bianca to fried pizzas, a common Neapolitan street treat. The dough is soft yet crispy and the tomato sauce is ultra tangy, making this pizzeria a destination restaurant. There are a handful of Italian wines on the menu, some of which are offered by the half liter, and all of which are priced slightly higher than they should be.
