Pizza continued--Polistina's

After all this pizza talk I was happy to be invited out
last night to Polistina's. Overall I was pleasantly
surprised. We had a regular large pie, and it really
fired well on all cylinders. Excellent, crisp crust.
Good, tangy sauce. Very good mozeralla, and not an
overabundance thereof. We ordered a family-sized mixed
green salad to start, which seemed overpriced at
$7.95--it was very small, and very simple. Simple
good, but overpriced. And the pint of beer was not a
pint, even though the waiter swore that they had done a
test after several customers had voiced similar
suspicions. Anyway, I definitely vote for Polistina's
above the horribly lackluster John's (UWS version), but
I suppose that ground's been covered.
