Thank goodness for Maximiliano! This spot is definitely top of our list of Italian food eateries in Highland Park. It’s tucked away off York blvd with indoor and outdoor casual upscale dining. “Kinda Old School Italian.” is what the owner is going for and he hit it on the head. There are homemade pasta and artisanal pizzas, with plenty of vegetarian and gluten-free options, soups, and much more. You haven’t lived until you’ve tried the octopus salad.
Runner up is Folliero’s Italian Food and Pizza. This hole in the wall spot has been serving the neighborhood for nearly 50 years. Big cheap pizzas (also available by the slice) are the usual order here. You can grab a large supreme pizza for $14.00 or grab a calzone for $10.00. You better have cash in your pocket. This spot doesn’t accept any other form of payment so forget about your Apple Pay.
Last in line is Italiano’s Pizza. It’s actually a cheap “around the way” pizzeria. They don’t even have a website! You can grab pizza by the slice. The dining room is small. Ordering takeout is the best option. For a fast and cheap piece of pizza pie, you’ve come to the right spot.
