For top shelf Italian food in Troy, there’s no better value than DeFazio’s: monster plates of pasta (freshly made: check out the big brass Impasta in the dining room) for eight to ten dollars, and maybe the best pizza in town (I Love New York is about the only potential competitor), circa thirteen bucks for a large with lots of toppings. Only a few tables on-site, but they deliver also. Caveat: DeFazio’s doesn’t sell pizza by the slice, so don’t come around looking for just a snack. As a bonus, visit the affiliated grocery next door for sauce, cheese, deli stuff, and cannoli ice cream (yes, cannoli ice cream).
