Polpettina homestyle pizza kitchen (Fisher Ave. Eastchester) this is so much more than just pizza...

Polpettina homestyle pizza kitchen is located in the space previously occupied by Chubby's, La Eateria... I passed by several times over the past few weeks and finally decided to stop in to grab a menu.
The restaurant has been completely renovated ( I will post pics when I can) It is small with only a few tables, I am sure they will be doing a brisk take out business. It has more of a Brooklyn vibe than Westchester I mean that in a good way. The owners were really friendly and take pride in the fact that they use only high quality local ingredients. The menu is comprised of interesting salads for example ( escarole with pancetta vinaigrette, crispy shallots, rehydrated apricots and a deep fried egg) yum. Five sandwich choices. There is mortadella with creamy dijon, escarole, fontina, brioche and roast pork with cilantro cream, house pickled veggies on chibatta... There are beef or pork meatballs and an Asian inspired chicken meatball. In addition there are several varieties of fries such as spicy chili, truffle parmesan..., grandma pies with toppings that include escarole, potato, pancetta, egg... There is also pappardelle bolognese, spaghetti with tomato, basil, onion and penne vodka and several vegetable sides. Daily specials are also available.
Salads are $8, sandwiches $10, meatballs $7 pasta $14
I ordered the roast pork sandwich and a slice of potato, escarole pie both were delicious. I am so grateful to have this new addition to the hood
