Add Rocco’s Pizza & Pasta in Riverhead to your list of inexpensive places for a fast bite — or a full meal — near Tanger Outlet Center.
Following an afternoon of shopping, I stopped into the unpretentious spot for a quick slice. What impressed me was their square crispino pizza, with a crust much lighter and more cracker-crisp than what you'd find on a typical Sicilian or grandma pie. It was topped with fresh mozzarella, tomatoes, roasted red peppers and basil.
The eatery looks like countless others on Long Island — a pizzeria on one side, a sit-down restaurant on the other.
On the dining room menu: baked ravioli ($10.95), chicken rollatini ($16.95) and pasta primavera ($12.95)
Rocco’s Pizza & Pasta is at 1285 Rte. 58, Riverhead, 631-727-4992.
