Parkside serves Neapolitan-style pizzas, along with a long list of house cocktails, a block southeast of Prospect Park. The bar is a good spot to dine solo or with a date, and the tables work for a small group hang. They serve some standard pizzas, as well as some more creative ones like miso cod with parmesan and the Sicilian pineapple with jalapenos - our favorite is the lamb sausage with mozzarella. They’re open till 2am everyday, so keep it in mind for a late-night drink option when you’ll probably end up wanting pizza anyway.

Walking by Bella Blu, you might assume it’s just like every other mediocre, stuffy restaurant in the Upper East Side. Stuffy, it most certainly is. But it’s actually far from mediocre – as long as you order correctly.
