Aloy's Italian Restaurant - Poughkeepsie
According to 24/7 Tempo Aloy's Italian Restaurant in Poughkeepsie has been serving up their legendary pizza since 1929! The restaurant has seen ownership changes over the years, but 24/7 Tempo says when "...Chris DiLeo bought the place in 2001, he reportedly had to sign a contract vowing never to reveal the secrets of the pizza crust or sauce."
O'Scugnizzo's Pizzeria - Utica
Known for its legendary tomato pie and pizza, O'Scugnizzo's has been feeding the masses for almost 110 years.
