Best Taste of Buffalo - 2007
Luciano's Pizza and Wings - CLOSED
Luciano's does wings. Luciano's does pizza. And that's pretty much all Luciano's does. At any rate, that's all that matters to anyone who cares about the archetypal flavors of Buffalo, where pizza and wings are the alpha and omega. Here the wings are fried hard, sauced with Frank's RedHot and served to-go in a cardboard box (more important to the smell and flavor than you'd think). The Buffalo-style pizzas are square, touched with a sweet sauce, mounted on a crust that's thicker than you find in New York City, thinner than the pizzas of the Midwest. The result is a pizza that reminds a lot of people of Pizza Thursdays in their high school cafeteria. It's an acquired taste, sure, but nothing about Buffalo is easy.
