Bites Nearby: Pizza, Heroes and Much More at Amici Express

Pizza is the focus, but don't miss the heroes, wraps and simple pastas.

Overview: You might drive right by , but this takeout-focused sibling to the full-service restaurant just a couple miles west shouldn't be missed.

Appetizers: The appetizers mostly come from the fryer with Fried Mozzarella Sticks ($6.95), Buffalo Wings ($10.95) and Chicken Fingers ($7.95).

The speciality pizzas are the stars of the menu, however, with pies like Formaggio ($18.95), a white pizza with ricotta, romano and mozzarella cheese and fresh garlic, Brooklyn Pizza ($19.95) made with spicy tomato sauce, mozzarella, fresh mozzarella and grated cheese, and Buffalo Chicken Pizza ($24.95) leading the Neopolitan-style list.

On the Sicilian side of the pizza menu you'll find Grandma Clara Pizza ($16.95) which is made with homemade marinara and mozarella, Grandma Frank Pizza ($18.95) which is made using pomodoro sauce, fresh onions and toasted breadcrumbs as well as Stuffed Chicken Ranch Pizza ($23.95), which -- as the name implies -- is stuffed with chicken, bacon, cheese and ranch dressing.

A variety of calzones and pinwheels can also be had for $1.75-$6.95 depending on fillings.

Heroes and Wraps: All of the standard Italian-American heroes are here, including Meatball Parmagiana ($6.95), Chicken Parmagiana ($7.95), Sausage and Peppers ($7.95) and Eggplant Parmagiana ($7.95), but there is also Cihcken Milanese ($7.95) for something a little different.

The Chicken Caesar Wrap ($8.95) is available with grilled or fried chicken, while the namesake Amici Wrap ($8.95) is made with grilled chicken, bacon, lettuce and a housemade special sauce.
