We visited DeSalvo's last night and enjoyed another incredible meal. We started with the cheese board which includes a tasty selection of cheese, salami, peppers etc. We then shared a sausage and pepper pizza which was incredible. The dough has a perfect chew, excellent crust and great flavor. The sauce is very fresh tasting and has just the right amount of spice. The mozz is top quality and the sausage has such an excellent taste! The pepper slices were just the right thickness so they were tender and moist. We have had pizza here more than a few times and I can honestly say every one has been perfect. I consider their pizza to be my favorite gas oven pizza and I rank it right up there with some of the best coal oven pizzas I've enjoyed. As far as the hats with shrimp dish I had its really hard to describe just how amazing and full of flavor it was. Homemade hats, large shrimp and red pepper slices were bathed in a garlic butter wine sauce that was unreal. There was some very well seasoned spinach placed on top that really added to the enjoyment factor of this dish. Dessert was a slice of excellent salted caramel cheesecake. We have tried numerous dishes here and each and every one has been just incredible. The red sauce here is especially good. The service is excellent as well, always friendly and efficient. I will find it very unlikely that I will visit any other restaurant in the area. DeSalvo's has become our favorite food destination in the Utica/Rome area for sure!
