BOB Awards Winner's Guide

Villa Francesca

  • Food


Sometimes pizza has to be eaten in a place where the owner's name is Louie and the pies take up your entire table. That's exactly what you'll find at uptown's Villa Francesca, where Luciano "Louie" Suppa is serving up enormous New York- style slices, perfect for folding and covered in mozzarella. Want something you can't order at a chain? Go with the sixteen-by-sixteen-inch square Grandma pizza ($17.99). The twelve slices of thin crust topped with fresh mozzarella cheese and plenty of the secret-recipe "Grandma sauce" are perfect for sharing.
