Long Island foodies are flocking to a place known for its gourmet pizza.
That "place" is La Bistro in both Wading River and Coram which also features other noteworthy offerings from pasta to salad to heroes.
The first restaurant in Wading River was opened in 2011 by Matt Rappa, of Selden, who grew up in an Italian traditional lifestyle that took him into the Italian food industry 17 years ago.
The first was such a success, he opened the Corman location a few years later after getting and keeping a local following of foodies who know a good slice when they bite into one.
A look at Yelp reviews tells the story with such accolades as: "Best pizza in Coram," and "Living on Long Island my entire life ( almost 50 years) I have eaten a lot of pizza In my time, and this place is absolutely right at the top of my best pizza list."
And some of the choices are very different and inventive such as the tossed salad with mozzarella cheese, or the cheesesteak slice, or wait, try the chicken, broccoli, cheddar slice.
The list goes on and on and the slices are so large they make a meal.
