Pier 76 was the next stop on the Staten Island Pizza tour. This is an offshoot of Joe and Pat's. Jeremy Pappalardo, the owner, is the son of Gerry Pappalardo of Joe & Pat's. Thin, I mean thin crusts, are a Staten Island thing for their pies.
Flagship Summer Ale washed it down.
Piccola Venezia in Astoria is a classic old-school Italian Restaurant. Little things like free cookies with the coffee and homemade Grappa sealed the deal.
