Food News: Ponte Mollo Replaces Vespa Cibobuono in Great Neck

When we last visited Vespa Cibobuono in Great Neck, owner Marco Mollo had recently purchased the restaurant from its previous owner. Fast forward almost a year and Marco has taken the restaurant, a Northern Italian masterpiece and transformed it into his own; Ponte Mollo. Placing his own stamp on the space, formerly known to those driving on Northern Boulevard for its Vespa continuously parked on the sidewalk, Marco can now continue to grow his expanding fan base of local diners and those looking for a wonderful italian night out.

Umberto’s Pizzeria in Plainview

Back in the day (mid-90′s) Caruso’s Pizza was the place to go for those kids growing up in the Plainview area. A lot has changed since that time. Waldbaums, the anchor store back then has transitioned to Fairway Market and Caruso’s is now known as Umberto’s Pizza of Plainview. Upon a recent visit we saw that although the name may have changed, the great pizza hasn’t.
