Aiello's Salumeria and Isa's Pizza Corner the Moon Valley Market
Counter-service Convenience and tasty dine-in or to-go Italian-American eats make up Aiello's Salumeria and Isa's Pizza.
If there were a year for husband-and-wife team and ex-Manhattanites Joe and Myrah Aiello, 2012 may be it. In addition to recently closing their namesake restaurant, Aiello's East Coast Italian Dining, and searching for a new spot in which to re-open it (possibly the One Lexington building in midtown), the two have been quietly taking over a strip mall in restaurant-poor Moon Valley. First, with Aiello's Salumeria, then next door Isa's Pizza, and finally Charr, the nothing-Italian-about-it American burger bar that opened last week.
Whew. Let's take a bite.
Here's an excerpt from this week's review:
"Standouts include Nana's Pie with housemade mozzarella, basil, and a zingy sweet plum tomato sauce; a thick and pillow-y Sicilian-style slice, fresh from the oven and draped with gooey cheese, red sauce, and spicy pepperoni; and an exceptional spinach Alfredo. If you're not a fan of spinach on pizza, one taste of this luscious and creamy creation with flavorful, fresh spinach in every bite will make you a believer."
