Sbarro was founded by Gennaro and Carmela Sbarro, when they emigrated from Naples to New York in 1956. Today, Sbarro has over 800 outlets serving New York style Pizzas in more than 40 countries.

For a pizzeria, it is a big place, two floored with a live pasta and pizza station just at the entry.The spread here is quite huge, one can never taste all the pizzas in one seating, however we tried to achieve the impossible. Each pizza and pasta is served with a garlic bread and tomato basil sauce. We were told by the chef to not use fork and knife, but rather eat it New York style i.e. fold from the middle of the crust and eat.

We started off with the Pepperoni Pizza, which is loaded with lots of thin sliced pepperoni, mozzarella and Sbarro's own savory tomato sauce. As Sbarro also uses its own hand-stretched dough, the base of every pizza is very soft and has an even flavor.

Then came the classic New York Cheese Pizza, a simple yet one of the most popular ones of Sbarro, it is served with their signature sauce made with tomato, fresh basil, olive oil and spices, topped with 100% mozzarella cheese.

The highlight of the afternoon was the White Pizza made of ricotta cheese and mozzarella. The chef told us that once you bite through their white pizza you will never put the slice down, and this is indeed true. What makes this pizza so good was the fact that the cheese they use are 100% dairy cheese, giving the taste a whole new dimension.

Next, we were introduced to a new addition to the pizza line­up, a Stuffed Pizza. Amazed by the pepperoni pizza and the fennel flavoured sausage in stromboli, we ordered the Sausage and Pepperoni Pizza, which is a visual delight. Looking more like a pressed sandwich this preparation is a unique addition to their range of regular pizzas. One slice of this pizza is a meal in itself, but this doesn't stop you from grabbing another slice.

An interesting preparation of a pizza, Stromboli, was served next. It is a rolled pizza, with fennel flavored sausages and mozzarella cheese stuffing. It is quite filling and is a masterpiece with less ingredients used.

After so many pizzas, we were served with the Bolognese Pasta, the spaghetti and the meat are cooked to perfection, they use their in house tomato basil sauce which gives the pasta that authentic italian flavour, with optimum amount of seasoning.
