MAMA ALVINO’S PIZZERIA

15179 E. Colfax Ave. • 303.364.1894 Lunch, dinner daily • Beer, wine • $$ The first thing devotees exclaim when you mention this small Aurora storefront is “calzones!” We’re talking about enormous crusted wonders that are bursting with meatballs, pepperoni, mozzarella cheese and peppers. They come with a warning about the dangerously molten contents. That’s the way it is at Mama Alvino’s.

Classic, hand-tossed dough provides the foundation for a variety of traditional toppings, but it’s the sauce selections that really stand out: pizza, sweet, BBQ, buffalo, Alfredo and picante. In fact, the picante takes center stage on the Taco pizza while the Philly steak pizza also strays from the ordinary. But pizza isn’t their only specialty, with calzones, jalapeno bread, pasta and wings completing the menu.

MASSINO’S ITALIAN RESTAURANT

1250 S. Buckley Road • 303.364.9916 10731 E. Alameda Ave. • massinospizza.com Lunch, dinner daily • No alcohol • $$ The specialty at this low-key shopping mall eatery is New York-style thin crust pizza in all its beautiful variations. Start by choosing a base of sauce: pizza sauce, spicy sauce, Alfredo sauce, garlic sauce, or barbecue sauce. Crusted possibilities include rolled stromboli, the double-stuffed version or square Sicilian-style pizza. Then there are the hot-from-theoven spinach calzones with marinara, that is unless you opt for cheesy baked pasta.
