Whether it’s due to the inclement winter weather or you want to avoid someone in Barone, most of us wish there was somewhere we can just order-out from so that we don’t have to leave our dorm.
Giove’s Pizza Kitchen, located at 246 Post Rd., is definitely the place to call. It is open seven days a week and you can pay with cash or credit. You may also place your order online at giovespizza.com. They are very precise and efficient with their deliveries.
Their menu includes breakfast (served all day), lunch (served until 3 p.m.), dinner and dessert. The options range from appetizers, soups, salads, wraps and paninis to burgers, pizza and pasta. They also offer a ton of specials on their menu and the prices are quite reasonable.
My personal favorite is the grilled veggie wrap. It consists of grilled eggplant, zucchini and Portobello mushrooms with tomato, roasted red peppers and feta served on a whole wheat wrap.
You can choose between the balsamic vinaigrette or Parmesan peppercorn dressing, but I would recommend the balsamic vinaigrette. I also ask for grilled chicken to be added. Just to put it out there, this isn’t the typical dinky wrap you expect; you definitely get your money’s worth.
If your weakness is pizza and you don’t want to break your New Year’s resolution, Giove’s allows you to create your own pizza with a whole wheat thin crust and offers a variety of toppings including shrimp, steak, caramelized onions and fresh spinach. They also have an array of sauces you can choose from including tomato, white, pesto, scampi, barbecue and buffalo.
They have pizzas you wouldn’t even imagined existed such as the Breakfast Pizza, which includes no red
sauce, eggs, mozzarella and any other topping you desire. They also have a Shrimp Scampi pizza with shrimp, fresh garlic, scampi sauce, and mozzarella. And for the chicken ranch lovers, what is better than the Chicken Ranch Pizza? This includes grilled chicken, bacon, garlic butter, mozzarella cheese, cheddar and a special ranch sauce.
Another great dish is penne alla vodka, which has bacon, onions and pink vodka sauce. It is served with soft bread sticks and a salad. If you want to satisfy that sweet tooth you can indulge in chocolate cake, cannolis, chocolate chip cookies, tiramisu cups, brownies, or lemon bars.
“This is my favorite pizzeria in Fairfield because it not only offers variety, but they give generous portions and the food is excellent,” said Nick Lauretti ‘12.
Not only is the food phenomenal, but their staff is friendly as well. They give you their honest opinion when you ask them if something is good or what you could order that’s better. Their main priority is for you to enjoy your food. Most pizzerias just make their food without thinking twice, but you can definitely taste the love they put into making every dish they sell.
So the next time you want to stay in your dorm and treat yourself to real food, call Giove’s Pizza Kitchen.
