Something Italian: Pizza-by-the-slice… and more.

Something Italian has been slinging out pizza-by-the-slice, pasta, salads, and sandwiches for almost 15 years now from its location in the Skywalk level of The Kirkwood.

Pizza-by-the-slice isn’t all that pays the bills at Something Italian. Daily specials – such as meatballs with marinara, bread and side salad – are a popular feature.

These firm, substantial meatballs swim in a zippy red sauce. If you can find a better meatball outside of a Society of Italian Americans Auxiliary dinner, I’m game to try. A side of Caesar salad with peperoncini and garlic-stuffed olives – below left – rounded out the meal.

But the most popular daily special comes on Tuesday. That’s when Something Italian takes a slice of their sausage pizza – as pictured above in the top row, right – and heap upon it a mound of lettuce, crushed tortilla chips, salsa, shredded cheese, and sour cream.

Its not what you’d expect from a taco pizza. It is what it is: a slice of pizza buried under a salad. I couldn’t possibly eat it by hand, so I attacked the salad with fork until it was of a more manageable size, and folded up the slice into a taco. Über-chunky salsa makes the taco pizza even more special. Its a great value too, at only three bucks.
