Always fans of new local restaurants, and hoping to support the small business owners in our area, we were excited to see that a new pizza/italian restaurant was announced near us in Nolensville, TN. Amico’s New York Pizza has been open a few weeks and really seems to have a pretty good handle on what they’re doing.
Most meals start with complimentary garlic rolls that are doused with a good bit of parmesan and garlic, and have soaked up a pretty good deal of olive oil. We haven’t tried their traditional Italian dishes, but I imagine it will be a wonderful tool for soaking up red sauce.
The bruschetta is one appetizer that has quickly become our favorite whether we order take out or eat in. The french bread is slightly toasted and has a nice bit of olive oil and garlic, and is slightly thicker than what would traditionally be thought of with this dish. The tomatoes are simply mixed with a bit of herbs and other flavorings, and topped with some parmesan.
The pizza’s here are quite substantial, as you can see. This particular pizza did come out a bit greasy, but both the cheese and the other toppings are heftily applied and quite tasty on their own.
While the quality of the pizza doesn’t quite rise to the level of Joey’s House of Pizza (in my opinion, the best around), the crust is thin with a slight bit of crispiness to it, and a little bit of chewiness once you bite into it. I could do with a slightly crispier crust, but we’ve found that a few minutes in a warm oven does wonders (now we just need to invest in that pizza stone). Overall, everything we’ve had at Amico’s has been a nice surprise, and we’re happy to see that they’ve gotten off to a nice start.Amico’s New York Pizza 7177 Nolensville Rd.
