This Week in Café: Antonio's Flying Pizza
Antonio’s Flying Pizza is the subject of this week’s Café. The red-checkered tablecloth joint on Hillcroft reminds me of the pizzerias where I hung out when I was in high school in Connecticut. And no wonder – Antonio’s is owned and operated by a Sicilian-born pizza maker named Antonio Rosa who once ran a pizzeria called Progresso in the Korvette Shopping Center on the Connecticut Turnpike between Bridgeport and Fairfield. Sitting at Antonio’s Flying Pizza, eating the stuff we used to call Italian food, made me consider the similarities between Americanized Italian food and Tex-Mex. – Robb Walsh
