A Best of Westchester for a pizza, pasta, and sandwich place frequented by students from nearby Iona College? Absolutely, mainly due to Chef Vincent Gentile, French Culinary Institute (now the International Culinary Center) alum, whose create-your-own pasta/sandwich offerings and gourmet pizzas taste light years beyond the typical college slice-shop fare. Try the focaccia pizza with a balsamic- and EVOO-infused crust and topped with plum tomatoes, roasted red peppers, and fresh mozzarella. You may want to enroll in a continuing ed class just to be nearby.
