I’ve been very lax in updating the Charlotte section of this blog as well as www.newyorkpizzafinder.com. Turns out my favorite New York Style Pizza Place, Nurchi’s, shut down last year and that was a big disappointment. Nonetheless, there are a lot of ex-New Yorkers in Charlotte, and a number of good New York Style Pizza Places in the Charlotte area. Carlo’s is my favorite. Here are some comments from my relatives who live in Charlotte or visit often:
The first one to come to mind is the one up at Prosperity Road. I can’t think of the name, but some others on this list will, and they can put it on your website http://www.sliker.com/newyorkpizzafinder/NC/nc.htm title
The Carlo’s on N. Tryon St is no longer. However, there is a Carlo’s in the South Blvd. Also some that I like are: Amalfi’s at the University area, Portafino’s on Eastway, Fuel Pizza on Central, (I think that you have been there), Hawthorn’s NY Pizza on Hawthorn
I think he is talking about Due Amici. You can’t go wrong there. The first time I ate there I thought I was back in New York.
I have been to Hawthorne’s NY Pizza, here is my brief review:
No green, red, white decor, pizza by the slice M-F only. I was not thrilled with it, I had part of a large cheese pie
Another Charlotte place is Due Amici Pizza at Prosperity Church Rd. and Mallard Creek Rd. intersection. They do have the green,white, red decor and pizza by the slice, but are closed Sundays so I couldn’t try one.
