Whenever I take the LIRR to Ronkonkoma to visit my folks on Long Island, I secretly hope they are late picking me up. Why? I can grab a slice at Scibelli's in the LIRR Station.
I fully realize that there have been accolades for Scibell's in the past, but all of the posts are about two years old. I just want to give a shout out about their pizza once more. The regular slice is one of the best ones I have come across in that region of Long Island (middle-ish Suffolk) because I love its sauce-cheese-crust ratio, which seems just about perfect. The sauce also has a nice balance of oregano in it, which is why I also like the regular slice at Aegean Pizza (in the Sun Vet Mall on Sunrise Highway), Gino's (on Main Street, Patchogue), and La Margarita (in Medford near the Surise Mall). They are all similar and I used to swear by Aegean's slice, but Scibelli's is now the clear favorite.
The garlic knots have a great balance of oil-bread-garlic. I don't like dry knots and Scibelli's are more moist and dense.
The grandma slice is also great. Again, they somehow get the ratio of sauce and cheese right. I usually shy away from Sicilian-styled pizza (thinking regular Margarita-styled pizza is the sum of all that is good in this world), but their grandma slice is worth it.
Any other pizza hints in and around this region of Suffolk County are much appreciated...
