Although most New Yorkers claim to know what "great" pizza is, once you're in good territory with ingredients and it being cooked well, it's largely personal taste.


After a lifetime of NY style regular pies, I do like a good Sicilian which I have yet to find here, or other non traditional slices like the chicken bacon ranch slice from Brothers of NY pizza in Cary.


The only time I've eaten pizza with a knife and fork was when I was dressed up for work and had a particularly greasy or messy slice. And I did so in a dark corner so I wouldn't be recognized.

I hear that Ricci's in Cary has great Sicilian - I haven't tried it yet but love that place for other things.

We loved it. Fresh mozzarella, made in house. More Italian spoken than English.

We got there just before 5:00. A party of six left and we were the only ones there.
I said to wife, "Jeeze... empty."

But the folks were hustling to add tablecloths on all the tables, getting ready for dinner. I figured they knew something we didn't.
And, people started coming. BYOB, temporarily, so several carried wine or beer in.
By the time we finished our pizza, paid and took a couple of slices in a box, our table was the only open one in the place.

We'll be back. Early...

I ate at DiFara's in Brooklyn maybe 10 years ago and it was REALLY good! Dominic (owner) would snip basil on and do a finishing drizzle of olive oil on top. Totally run-down but fantastic pies. So sure I'm excited to see what his nephew can do. And while we do have some really good pizza in the Triangle now, another really good one couldn't hurt. I'm a big fan of Randy's RTP, Oakwood Pizza Box, Mercato Pizza in Carrboro and some others. Oakwood Pizza Box is run by Anthony Guerra who's family had the first Neapolitan pizza joint in the area, Bella Mia. So his standards are hi.

But yes, we could use some more Sicilian, deep-dish, Detroit-style and more....

Riccis is the same spot as our favorite ice cream spot in Cary (Andias). We may have to plan a field trip.

My parents joke that I'm old before my time because we routinely make reservations for the earliest seating when we go out. I need time to digest before bed!

I've heard of NY style and Chicago style all my life but now I think Detroit is just jumping on a bandwagon lol Although if I'm in a position too, I would try it.
