Famous Ben's Pizza of SoHo Restaurant Review

: The name Ben might not sound very Italian, but take one bite of his famous Sicilian-style pizza (in big squares with lots of sweet tomato sauce and cheese) and you’ll start to wonder why there aren’t more Italians named Ben. You also can’t go wrong with the ham-and-cheese knots, overstuffed calzones, eggplant Parmigiano rolls and even fried dough for dessert.
