Sam's Pizza & Pasta Restaurant Review

: If you're craving a slice of real New York pizza, complete with a dusting of cornmeal on the crust, then this little joint in the middle of nowhere is worth a short road trip. Smothered in mozzarella with the usual round-up of toppings, the crust finds that balance between chewy and crisp that's key to a good slice. There is also stuffed pizza, the spinach version is particularly good, and Sicilian-style thick crust pizzas. Stick with the pizzas---other entrées like lasagna and meatball subs don't fare as well.
