Aloy's in Poughkeepsie (Pizza/Italian)

NewYorkDave | Aug 19, 200603:26 AM    

I finally checked out Aloy's tonight after hearing about it for many years. If you like "grandma" style pizza--thin, crispy square pie topped with grated parmesan--then definitely give it a try. I don't think you'll be disappointed. The sauce is very rich and intense; it has a pleasing hint of carmelized onions and seems like it must have been simmered for a long time. Our waitress says that the sauce and dough are made fresh daily.

Their pie is semi-legendary locally, and is definitely a cut above the slop that usually passes for "pizza" across most of Dutchess county (and I say that as a long-time local resident, not a snotty Manhattanite newcomer).

The ravioli in fresh pomodoro sauce was delicious but slightly overpriced--almost 12 bucks for an average-sized serving. The pizza, however, was priced below average, 9 bucks and change for a large pie.

The tiramisu was OK, nothing exceptional. Service was very friendly and the atmosphere pleasant and casual. Most of the customers seemed to be regulars.

Aloy's has been in business since 1929 and overall, I would describe it as a good, classic Italian-American neighborhood joint.
