There are two dishes that I enjoy most when dining at 37th Street Pizzaria, and those are the antipasto salad and the freshly made “Mama Capriglione” Pizza. Although New Bern is over thirty minutes from my home, I will make the drive just for these two menu options. The antipasto is pilled high with fresh mozzarella cheese and filled with delicious deli meat, olives, lettuce, tomatoes, and so on.

The pizza is so filling, I cannot possibly finish the whole thing, even though it is supposed to be just for one person.
