Founded in 1987, LaRocca's is a youngster in pizza years, and its reputation is overshadowed by nearby Nunzio's, which was the victim of a recent, rather unfortunate facelift. LaRocca's pies are every bit as good, including the whole-wheat Neapolitan, the Staten Island Sicilian, and, especially, the upside-down Sicilian, with the tomato sauce-sporting a peregrine basil leaf or two-poured on top of the great oozy cheese. A pleasant outdoor dining area, and attached Italian-ice store boasting more than 100 flavors, make this a one-stop dining destination.
