2. Parlor Pizza (108 N Green)

With their Neapolitan inspired pizzas and expansive patio, there’s something on the menu for everyone! The pizzas sport great names like “Burrata Be Kidding Me” and “Cheesus, Mary & Joseph” and the atmosphere is lively and fun, so sneak that piece of pepperoni to your canine best friend and enjoy!
