    Four Sons, if you like pizza and haven't tried Farley Girls, give it a whirl. It's my favorite on the Island, so far. Free parking all day long to boot.

    Visited Riondo's. We hope they are experiencing some opening jitters. My Caesar salad was crisp and cold, but the dressing tasted like it was poured from a bottle and the croutons, my favorite part, were mushy and had no flavor. We ordered pizza and it was, hands down, the worst pizza I have ever had. The crust was thick, doughy and tasteless. The toppings were sparse and the presentation was sad. My pizza made at home is much better and I'm no gourmet cook. We did like the stuffed mushrooms, but only after we scraped off the creamy sauce off. The sauce was tasty, but it was so thick it overwhelmed the mushrooms. We will go again, but if nothing changes it will be marked off our list.
