Atomica Pizza & Wine.
Kingston, Ontario Canada

Located in the middle of Brock street, the store front restaurant was small but quaint. Approx 1000sq ft with outside seating. we arrived at 6:10pm for our 6:30pm reservation. The table was set up in back by pizza oven. It was fun to watch the pizza’s be made and put in the oven.
We ordered the diavolo Hawalano, fruitti Di mare for appetizers. The Diavolo Hawalano had a spicy red sauce, that kinda over powered the sweetness of the pineapple, next we ordered calamari and the caprese with pesto. The crispy Calamari came in a small bowl with tomato sauce , olives and was “different” and not to my liking. It was good.

For dinner we had a variety of pasta’s. fettucine, house special pasta with shrimp, Bucatini All, Amatriciani. All was delicious.

For dessert we tried the Carmelita, frozen canoli, Chocolate Tiramisu.

Service was attentive.

Wooden Head Pizza. 192 Ontario Street Kingston Ontario Canada

This is the “BEST” Pizza. The Best…. ANYWHERE…….

i have been coming here for years. i can’t believe i hadn’t written a review yet. We wanted to have a group pizza party last week but could never get a reservation. finally on Monday we took a large group of 14 to a group dinner the night before I was leaving for the states.
We all started off with drinks, beers, salads, coconut shrimp, VooDoo shrimp, calamari. The next course was a variety of Wooden Head’s famously delicious fire oven pizzas. We had the dynamo(my favorite) , the Americana, the Nonna mela, the prosciutto, plain cheese, vegetarian.
After letting everyone sample all the flavors…… We weren’t done yet.

Now it’s time for dessert……..!!!!!!!!!!!

We love their desserts. All freshly made, most from the wood fire oven. So we started with the pear calzone, oven baked and covered with fresh cut strawberries and chocolate sauce. Next the apple pizza smothered with fresh cut apples drizzled with caramel sauce and granola like crispier,,,yum yum.. The chocolate lasagna was stacked chocolate mousse between crisp sugar wafers with fresh strawberries and fresh cream drizzled all over. And to finish we had the lemon tarts with lemon creme and fresh cream drizzle.
On a 5 scale…Wooden Heads is a TEN…
Our server , Katie, was extremely attentive and took very good care of our large group.
I highly recommend Wooden Heads Pizza to anyone visiting Kingston Ontario Canada. Unfortunately, there is only one. We keep asking the owner to franchise….. But not so far.

Now just to finish this off… I travel all over the world, eating delicious pizzas everywhere …… Italy- All over, New York, West coast(Round Table), Germany, France, …..none compare to Wooden Heads Pizza.

Enjoy…EH. !!!. Kb

Vito’s Trattoria 90 Skyport Dr. San Jose, Ca. 408-453-1000

I went to Vito’s with a long time friend a few months ago and had the Tortellini Carbonara. DELICIOUS,,,,,,,,, I returned tonight to try something else. We ordered drinks and they brought us fresh warm bread with a plate of olive oil and balsamic vinegar….yummmm. I ordered the Caesar Salad with anchovies for a starter. Very nice. My main course was the Vitello alla Picatta. It was so tender, it cut through like butter. The vegetables were perfectly steamed. My friend had the “Baseball”cut Top Sirloin with the peppercorn sauce. A mixed green salad with oil and vinegar, tortellini with marinara sauce and steamed vegetables.

We had an Apple crisp with vanilla gelato and a spumoni for dessert.

The atmosphere is pleasant, the wait staff extremely attentive. I highly recommend Vito’s Trattoria to anyone visiting San Jose, Ca.

My only issue is their sign out front on the street side. I’ve driven past this place for years and it reads: Vito’s New York Pizza and Trattoria.
Frankly, the location of the Restaurant around the other shops ,,, I always assumed it was just a pizza joint. I WAS WRONG …
This place ROCKS… It’s very elegant, great ambience, and fabulous service.
5 Stars…..

Don Giovanni Ristorante 358 West 44 Street New York, NY 212-581-4939   no web site listed ????

Our good friend PAT was celebrating her 70th Birthday and her husband Bill took us to Don Giovannti’s on 44th, which was just a few blocks from our Hotel. It was a nice warm and friendly Ristorante with a good aroma as we entered the front door. It says they are known for their brick oven pizza.  We started with assorted drinks and apps, Rolls with garlic and the Fried Calamari, it was delicious, tender inside and crispy on outside. There was 6 of us so we tried a lot of things on the menu. We ordered a few salads, Veal  Marsala, Veal Piccata, Lobster Ravioli, Fried Chicken Breast on rice, Linguini and clams. All was delicious. The meat dishes were VERY Tender and the sauces were excellent.

Unfortunately, we didn’t order the Famous PIZZA, but the aroma all night of them cooking was enough to let us know they Must be good. we didn’t order dessert either.  Pricing was in the middle .   ALL in ALL, a GREAT Friday evening in Downtown just blocks off Time Square with GREAT friends and delicious food.

4 STARS………..  Happy Birthday PAT.
