This unpretentious, family-owned restaurant serves hearty old-world fare like spaghetti carbonara and chicken piccata, but Italian-style pizza makes this venue a local landmark. Casa Bianca pizzas are served on crispy Roman-style thin crust, and they offer a range of toppings so you can customize your own. Try the Pizza Bianco, a variation on a traditional Italian “pizza margarita,” for a savory lunch. If you’re planning a party, supplement your pies with their heaping pasta al forno or antipasto take out platters.
Big Mama and Papa’s Pizzeria
Big Mama and Papa’s is a casual counter-style chain known for jumbo-size thick-crust pizzas. Their pesto pizza, covered with tangy peppers and grilled shrimp, is a local favorite. If you’re looking for a game day feast, Big Mama and Papa’s also sells appetizers like buffalo wings, mozzarella sticks, and onion rings, and you can add a gluten-free crust to any pie.
Their bright-red store front is a local landmark, and their pizzas are a local favorite. They offer a 14” medium that’s perfect to share, or an 18” large that’s perfect for delivery, and they use organic, local, seasonal, and sustainably-farmed products whenever possible. The extensive menu options include several vegan and gluten-free selections, as well as creative combos like bacon, fig, and fried sage; parmesan and gorgonzola; and beet and arugula. Try swapping out a classic tomato base for house-made pesto or molé sauce.

The pizza menu includes inventive creations like the Cuban pizza, designed in homage to the classic Cuban sandwich – garlic oil, pork, ham, swiss, pickles, mustard crème fraiche – and the Alfredo Chicken, with creamy homemade sauce.
