Marinara might just seem like an average slice place - but it’s one of the best spots for pizza on the Upper East Side, and there a couple of tables where you can hang out and eat. They typically have a bunch of different square and round slices like pesto and buffalo chicken, but we tend to keep it simple and go for the pepperoni. And if you’re with someone who doesn’t consider pizza a complete meal, there’s also some bigger stuff like pasta and chicken parm.
