Sitting at the Aracri Pizzeria on Gay Street during a recent weekend visit, my appointed dining companion and I took a one-time visit to the Downtown restaurant.
We saw a long, cramped and inviting space with parlor-style furniture, a compact bar (with a little Ohio faucet), vintage brick and wood, subway-style tiles, a long wide ceiling, and fabric. Covered a long banquet and sturdy wooden tables.
The atmosphere of the cozy, counter-ordering space included thrilling decorations and posters admiring the Italian locations, cars and wines, as well as smiling customers and notable servers – the man who jokingly pounded a pizza pedal. The ball was caught like a bat that looked like a social media image. op
Three Bytes Bakery:Contrary to its name, the excellent rent of Three Bytes Bakery ensures that you will eat the whole thing.
With all this, as well as the smell of fresh flour and long cooked tomato sauce, my partner turned to me and said, “This place looks like it has been around for decades.”
Well, it is and it is not.
The gay street archery pizzeria was only open in January. But operating under its former name – Cafe Napolitana – the business has been a “neighborhood favorite” at various downtown addresses for nearly three decades. (A related aquarium pizzeria near Ohio State Campus, which is not part of this review, premiered in 2018).
A reset menu came with migration and renaming. New York-style pizzas featuring homemade flour are still the focus of attention, but many starters, sandwiches and pasta dishes are currently on offer, including freshly baked fresh dough in casual bread. ۔
Two thick rolls of garlic bread with raw, oven-black, Permisan dusty exterior and soft interior, played the other part of the meatballs and garlic cloves ($ 9), a crowd-pleasing appetite to enter. Can act as Rolls / “Knots” make great, soup-up partners for the star of the dish – an Italian-American-style delightful pork hair casserole filled with thick, sweet, herbal-flavored homemade marinara sauce oven. Was – Brown mozzarella.
Be sure to visit the restaurants:Barbecue, burgers, wine, etc. are among your options for eating, drinking and enjoying.
Shiny, right side of the oven, envelops the pizzeria ingredients in a golden brown baked dough sausage roll ($ 13) and three baked cheese calzones ($ 10). Served around Marinara, both dishes were delicious and satisfying, but I wish their interior was more evenly distributed.
I preferred the sausage roll – basically a Stramboli with a delicious, long-shelled fried onion and pepper, mashed mozzarella and fennel seed flavored ground sausage garnish part. The heavier and breadcrumb calzone wasn’t that crispy but it tasted good – provolon, mozzarella and charming milky ricotta made a great trio.

Homemade flour is baked in thin crusted discs with puffy, toasty edges in the food store’s signature pizza. Taking advantage of Aracri’s Fabulous Dinner Discount during Happy Hour (Wednesday to Friday 5pm to 7pm), consumers can enjoy the price of an unbeatable pizza: $ 5.50 for 10 inches (although they are large Seemed), found an item.
Prices range from $ 10 for a 10-inch cheese pizza to $ 30 (up to 14) for a 16-inch high-end pizza with every home topping. A reasonably popular order – a 12-inch pie with toasted yet elastic crust and fine cheese enhanced by salty, slightly crispy pepperoni – costs $ 16.
Aracri’s chicken parmigiana, one of the best pasta entries I have recently, is the same price. Without the deep-fried bones, a piece of chicken breast was so large that it looked like a raft on which I could swim. It was crowned with attractive brown provolon and mozzarella and then pampered with coffee marinara to embark on the journey of my imaginary fleet. Spaghetti sauce under the deck was cooked on Al Dent – a rare item in many pizzerias in my experience. The garlic clove presented on one side played the role of protector of life.
No, it was not a revelation. But much like the old archery I have so far sampled, the Italian-American classic is a solid, well-tasting and rib-sticking reminder that, accepting change is often reinforced. Yeah Al that sounds pretty crap to me, Looks like BT aint for me either.
