For the New York transplant in Florida, pizza and wings up to the ‘Buffalo standard’ can be hard to find. With origins in Buffalo, New York itself, Casa Di Pizza in Bradenton, Florida is as authentic as it gets, offering the absolute best in Buffalo classics amid a wonderland of friendly faces and Bills and Sabres sports gear.

The namesake pizza at Casa Di Pizza is emblematic of classic Buffalo-style pies, down to the fine details in the ingredients, like the char cup pepperoni and perfect blend of spices atop the hot melted cheese. Crust styles include the regular, the deep dish, and the thin crust, while toppings of all kinds can be chosen from, and single slices are always available too.

For specialty pizzas, the Chicken Finger is another Buffalo icon done proudly, featuring a blue cheese sauce base, strips of mild chicken fingers, and fresh mozzarella cheese on top. The steak pizza is an excellent choice too, featuring a light olive oil base, grated Romano, spinach, tomatoes, onions, mozzarella, and sliced rib eye steak.

The chicken wings at Casa Di Pizza are the perfect level of plump and crispy, again nailing that classic Buffalo style where it counts. The hot sauce is a personal favorite, perfectly tangy with the blend of spicy and buttery flavor. Other flavors include the mild, medium, suicide (extra hot), sweet Thai chili, lemon pepper, teriyaki, and butter garlic parmesan.

For appetizers, the battered mushrooms are a deep-fried wonder at a half pound per order served with ranch, while diners on a budget will love the garlic knots at six for just four bucks and twenty-nine cents. The pizza logs come highly recommended by locals too, as do the iconic Buffalo classic, stuffed banana peppers.
