Scarfallotos Towne House - Honesdale

Tasty Things Happen When a Diner Adds Pizza Ovens


Scarfalloto's Towne House Diner and Restaurant is an eatery in downtown Honesdale which I have visited in the past, but prior to their purchasing the establishment in 2013.  I was recently in Honesdale for a meeting and had the opportunity to try the pizza from Scarfalloto's.  The pizza was delivered so I don't have much to report about the restaurant itself, other than I was excited to learn that they have pizza ovens and are serving a pizza that I've not yet tried!  Since I didn't pay a physical visit, I'm hoping my Honesdale friends can fill in the blanks for me in the comments.


The delivery service was right on schedule for the requested time.  The pizza was hot, fresh, and bellowing steam out of the box.  The first glance at the pizza was pleasing as it was cooked thoroughly with a golden to darker brown crust and cheese which was melted nicely with some light browning in spots.  The crust was thicker and heartier than most thin crust New York style pizzas and had some light bubbling throughout.  It was more of a tender crust with a pleasant chew than it was crispy, but it worked.  The sauce was savory with a smoother consistency and was moderately seasoned which provided the punch necessary to complement the thicker dough.  The cheese was generously applied and was a satisfyingly salty blend of what I would guess was cheddar and mozzarella.  If you've ever tried Dino & Francesco's, Antonio's, or other similar places - this is the type of cheese flavor and texture I'm describing.


Overall, this pizza was very satisfying and was the perfect type of pizza for a luncheon.  Because of the thicker crust and the flavor profile, this pizza has a solid shelf life and would be good for parties and gatherings.  Admittedly, I haven't been to Honesdale recently, but of the pizzas that I have tried over the years, Scarfalloto's is certainly in the conversation for the best pizza in town.  Have you tried the pizza here or eaten at Scarfalotto's and can tell me more about the place?  Leave your story in the comments!  I'd love to learn about more!
