Virgilio's Pizzeria & Wine Bar Restaurant Review

: Thin-crusted pizzas with beautiful crusts specked with just a hint of freckled char emerge from the ovens at this behemoth suburban pizzeria that's run by a full-blooded Italian. Pizzas, dispensed from an open kitchen overlooking a dining room furbished with tomato-red chairs and rusticated farmhouse tables, are augmented by pastas, including a gluten-free zucchini "spaghetti" and huge calzones sided with an herb-laden marinara. The main seating area caters to families, while the lively bar attracts an adult crowd that gathers for happy hour to sip from an extensive wine syllabus that favors Italian bottlings in all price ranges. A large patio, strewn with blooms and sun-shielding umbrellas, is an ideal perch in which to indulge in the house-made burrata leaved with fresh basil, the coveted spinach pinwheels or addictive garlic-laced knots. An eye-catching display case showcasing a multitude of desserts gives sugar fiends a reason to enjoy the chocolate chip cannoli.
