Pizza strips to die for!
Raymond Calvitto, Sr., opened the first Calvitto's location at 1401 Park Avenue in Cranston in 1985. This location is the second. He began with bread, calzones, pizza, and an assortment of biscuits, and later added various kinds of pastries.
Calvitto's is one of our favorites for pizza strips—generous amounts of sauce and a crust that's not too chewy. They also have white pizza strips (no sauce or cheese, just foccaccia bread with a sprinkling of herbs, garlic, and red pepper—chewy and spicy) and "dressed" pizza strips (strips with toppings like pepperoni, black olives, etc.). If you need a party box, remember to call ahead—or risk getting the evil eye from the counter lady!
This Calvitto's location is open Tuesday to Saturday, 7am-8pm; Sunday, 7am-7pm.
