PLAYA TOP 5 Pizza & Pasta

Well, here is the final episode of PLAYA TOP 5.
I saved Pizza and Pasta for last because it is near and dear to so many and I knew my list would receive a lot of "but what about..."
So anyway, here is my list of the best pizza and pasta in playa.
Enjoy
BTW, I have started filming a new series called "Playa Vision"...Live reports from openings, happenings, activities, and events...stay tuned

I was contracted by a client to produce a series of top 5 videos.
None of the businesses profiled were asked to pay to be included
Most of them were not even aware that they were being filmed.
I reckon after having lived in playa for over 15 years that I am entitled to my opinion, as are you.

Rick, speaking of pizzas - Milla Voglia on 38th was been sold and is currently being remodeled into............another Italian restaurant.
At one time I liked M.V. pizza almost as much as Romeo's and it was much closer to where I live.

yes, of course your opinion is just as valid as any other
there is one place mentioned on there that might not crack the top twenty list for many people

Yes, I still like Piola. It was hit or miss for a while, but I thinks it back to being very good.

Here is a pizza from GG:



One from Piola (I like their crust but think they need to put on more sauce):



And one from Don Mario's (a little floppy but the taste was delicious):




Boy, I miss pizza testing. Maybe I should do it all over again.
