Pizza, pasta, Parmigiana dishes and more are now being served at Sacramone’s Coal Oven Pizza, which opened last week in the East Meadow space that used to house Puglia of Little Italy, across Hempstead Turnpike from the Nassau County Medical Center.
The new restaurant is under the same ownership as Sac’s Place in Astoria, which has been around 22 years, 14 of those with a coal-fired oven. This according to co-chef and owner Domenico Sacramone, who said that most of the recipes used are from his mother, Maddalena Sacramone, 87, who was born in Abruzzo, Italy. She, along with Sacramone and his brother, Anthony, do the cooking at both the Queens and Long Island restaurants.
Their pizza menu is simple and succinct. You can get an individual 10-inch cheese pie for $9.50; a 14-inch medium is $13.95 and an 18-inch large is $16.95. Alternatives include a marinara cheeseless pie, a white pie and a “mama’s old-fashioned pie” with tomatoes, basil and mozzarella .
Other dishes: an antipasto of asparagus with prosciutto ($8.95), a Caesar salad ($8. 95), house-made ravioli with roasted pepper and smoked mozzarella in pepper cream sauce ($8.95 for an appetizer serving, $17.95 for an entree), meatball Parmigiana ($16.95) and veal Marsala ($23.95).
Sacramone’s is at 2366 Hempstead Tpke., East Meadow, 516-513-1919.
