With hectic holiday schedules, being able to dine out and grab a delicious bite is welcomed! Recently, I had the opportunity to visit Izzy’s Pizzeria a charming restaurant located within City Place a fabulous open air mall in Edgewater, New Jersey. I consider this mall a fab one-stop-shop. So, after I was done with my shopping list for the day, I made my way to Izzy’s for some tasty pizza.
I heard complimentary things about Izzy’s, but like most of us, I like to check things out for myself! What I heard is that the pizza is amazing. Finding authentic pizza in New Jersey can sometimes be challenging.
When we arrived at Izzy’s the inviting decor welcomed us along with the friendly staff. Immediately, we were greeted and walked to our table. The airy and open feeling of the restaurant was tops, it just makes you feel relaxed. I also like the natural wood elements and tones of the decor. This is a BYOB so you can grab your favorite wine, rose’ and enjoy the night!
We were shown a digital tablet were you can preview photos of the dishes they offer, which is a unique way to actually see what your dish will look like and certainly gets the taste buds flowing! We started with the Signature Meatballs (Pork & Beef, garlic & basil) and they were so tender and delicious set atop Polenta! Next, was the Piadine (this was so good, too). We enjoyed the Tomato, basil, prosciutto, mozzarella, extra virgin olive oil Piadine and it was so tasty and fresh. Next up, was the star of the meal (although everything was tasty). I had the Margherita Pizza San Marzano tomatoes, mozzarella, basil, olive oil while my fiancee had the Italian Salami, Soppressata, mozzarella, San Marzano tomatoes, oregano, olive oil. The crust is light yet crispy, the sauce is so good and everything was top notch! You can view their menu, here.
Izzy’s is located in Edgewater, NJ at the Shops at City Place. You can swing by their website for further details. We can’t wait to go back to satisfy our pizza craving. Did I mention that their oven was shipped in from Italy?! This place is a must visit, for sure. I also love the easy parking right outside. Look at the delicious dishes below:
