State Street Pizza Company offers pizza by the slice or the pie at this walk-up and walk-in pizzeria. Salads and thin flatbreads also round out the menu.
For starters, try the capreasy salad, featuring fresh diced mozzarella. Then it's on to the flatbreads: We tried the classic margherita, which came with six small, crispy squares of melted mozzarella, roma tomatoes and basil, which tasted decent. It was the Quattro flatbread that was the real star, though, with thin squares of mozzarella, bleu cheese, parmesan, fontina and olive oil.
If you opt for just a slice of pizza, you can choose cheese, pepperoni, sausage or garden pizza for $4-$5. If you want a 14-inch or 18-inch pizza, it'll be $13.50-$24.50, depending on the toppings. Specialties include Q, with roasted chicken, barbecue sauce, mozzarella and red onions; It's for my girlfriend, with spinach, sun-dried tomatoes, goat cheese and mozzarella on whole wheat crust; and Rico's Special, with sausage, pepperoni and bacon.
The exposed-brick-walls dining area is tight, with four tables and bar stools. If you're looking for some reasonably priced eats and want food that'll satisfy your hunger cravings without overstuffing your tummies, go with the Quattro flatbread, and you should be pleased.
