While I was doing some shopping at the Whitepoint Shopping Center, I started to hear that growling noise your stomach makes when it’s telling you that it needs food. I knew that I had to find somewhere to eat and fast.
There were a few different places to eat around 14th Avenue, but my girlfriend and I were in the mood for some Italian food, so we decided to have lunch at Whitepoint Pizzeria & Restaurant.
In addition to the extensive palate of pizza slices offered, it also has pasta dishes for those craving a bigger meal.
We started off with orders of fried calamari and garlic bread. The calamari was breaded nicely with the familiar squid-like taste with every bite. They also provided plenty of lemons for me to shower my calamari in, which I love to do. The garlic bread also served as a nice touch for the appetizers. The loaf was peppered with garlic, olive oil and parmesan cheese. It was crunchy, but just soft enough that it was easy to bite into without getting bread crumbs all over your clothes.
We then moved on to the main course. We both got similar meals, she got chicken cutlet parmigiana, while I opted for the shrimp parmigiana. The shrimp parm was breaded and plastered in marinara sauce and mozzarella cheese. I got a full dose of shrimp and cheese with every bite and used the leftover bread to dip into the sauce. My girlfriend enjoyed her meal as well, repeatedly telling me how good it was. I sampled a piece of her chicken and it was well-cooked and tasted great.
Overall, we had a pleasant experience dining at Whitepoint Pizzeria & Restaurant and if you’re ever in College Point, a stop at this place is something that I highly recommend.
