I'm a Pizza head, I eat Calzones that excite the feds.

I love calzones. But I didn't eat them for a long time. Finding a good one wasn't easy. Half the time they were too doughy or too cheesy and didn't make for a pleasurable dining experience. So I quit. Just a slice or a hero from the pizzeria and I was gone.

Then a couple of years ago playing ball, a Riverdale hoop legend named Al Pine (that's really his name) put me on to 3 Boys From Italy Pizza on Burke Ave. and White Plains Road. I don't even know how it came up, but he swore by their calzones, and that was all I needed. Since then I try to get there at least twice a month. The calzones are serious. They're big, filled with plenty of meat or cheese, and thin and crisp on top. These fill up the biggest eater. I'm not even sure what else to write to convey how good they are. The $3.50 cost doesn't hurt either, $4 for the chicken.

You can choose from Cheese (ricotta), Sausage & Peppers, Meat & Cheese, and Chicken Parm. I usually go with the meat or sausage & pepper, but they're all delicious. The pizza is no joke too. And if you want a great salad, the chicken cutlet salad is the BEST salad I've ever eaten from any pizzeria. Lettuce, tomato, cucumber, black olives, red onion, mozzerella cheese, and a generous amount of grilled chicken cutlets, doused in oil and vinegar. This was my Sunday night HBO salad for 2 for years. I have people visiting me from the Midwest just for this salad.
