Roberti pies

Every day, Pizzeria Roberti, a new pie monger in East Orlando, features a specialty pizza. You might find braised short rib, Buffalo chicken or even foie gras pizza on offer.

Or a relatively mundane pizza bianca, as was the case when I visited. Oh well, luck of the draw, I suppose.

And the bianca was fine, just nothing out of the ordinary. The crust was New York-style thin and nicely done, and the toppings -- all white, because bianca -- were applied neither too amply nor stingily.

I also got a slice of regular style pizza with basic sausage and mushroom. The red sauce was lightly slathered, and while I might have preferred a bit more sausage, there was enough for most bites.

The storefront space was bright and tidy. It offers a pleasant atmosphere if you choose to eat in. The young staff members I met had unforced smiles and seemed eager to please. Pizzeria Roberti is helmed by Joseph Roberti.

It's nice to see more pizzerias coming online to step up the quality of local pies.

Pizzeria Roberti is at 2751 S. Chickasaw Trail, Orlando. It is open for lunch and dinner Monday to Saturday. The phone number is 407-634-0041.
