Six years and more than 22,236 slices of pizza later, Milana’s New York Pizzeria in downtown Long Beach is giving the gift of “Pick Six Pizza,” with two different deals, on Friday, February 19 as an invite to the pizza-consuming community to celebrate the shop’s sixth birthday party.
From noon to 6:00PM, cheese slices will be sold for 60 cents each (with a three-slice limit) and from 6:00PM to midnight, guests in the downtown area and nearby residences can chow down on a $6 cheese pizza with each topping an additional $2; for pick-up or dine-in only.
“We suggest when trying Milana's to go for a simple cheese slice,” stated Adriel Fasci, owner of Milana’s New York Pizzeria. “If a cheese slice cannot stand on its own, it's not great pizza. An abundance of toppings only hides inferior pizzas. It’s been a privilege to operate in the downtown for the past six years. We have made many friends and customers, but most importantly, we’ve made many great pizzas together.”
Since opening its doors on February 19, 2010, Milana’s has fed its pizza-loving patrons nearly 625,000 pizzas with as much as five million ounces of sauce spread across more than 12.4 million ounces of dough, according to the announcement. Milana’s sauces, marinara and meatballs are all housemade, while all ingredients are prepared daily to be served that day only.
Such dedication to serving the highest quality, New York-style pizza, salads and sandwiches may just be why Yelp reviewers have proclaimed the shop the “Best Pizza in Long Beach.”
Milana’s New York Pizzeria is located at 165 East 4th Street.
