Even though Sag Harbor is not that big of a town, the walk seemed to take forever. When did Long Island become as hot as Florida during the summer? I guess Al Gore was right about that global warming thingamajig. Anyways, as you can tell, this review is quite a bit delayed, since I ate there a few months ago and forgot to publish this review back then.
There seems to be two pizza places in the quaint town of Sag Harbor. Conca D’ Oro was the first one we passed, so I walked right in to grab a slice. Conca D’ Oro is nothing fancy inside, which I was a little surprised with, since Sag Harbor is known to have celebrities flock to the town during the season. Usually places would try to impress them with fine decor and clean tables.
My slice at Conca D’ Oro was pretty decent. I found the crust to be excessively bland, and the chunky tomatoes by the edge of the crust didn’t help my experience either. Thankfully, they seemed to only apply the chunks to the edges, and not throughout the entire slice. They are definitely using some nice tasting cheese on the pie here though. When it comes to a place that really only has business for 3 months a year, and has managed to remain open for several years, it is hard to knock them.
If you want a slice while you are visiting there, you might want to stop in and have one here. Not like you have too many other choices though. My advice to Conca D’ Oro would be to smooth out their sauce and apply it evenly when making the pizza. You will have plenty of time dring the winter to practice this.
Cona D’ Oro gets 4 out of 8 slices.
