A few days before I left New York, my boyfie brought me to Captain's Pizzeria at The Bronx for dinner.
A true mom-and-pop restaurant, we waited for a few days for the resto to reopen because the family who owns the place went on vacation.
The restaurant has a take-out counter in front and a dining area at the back.
To start our meal, we were served freshly-baked bread and butter. The bread arrived warm, so we dug it right away. The boyfie told me that we can ask for as much bread as we want.
We were also served a complimentary Green Salad along with the bread.
Because of the complimentary bread and salad, we didn't need to order appetizers and went straight to the main dishes.
The boyfie had Eggplant Parmigiana ($14.95 or Php 717.60) while I had Shell Steak a la Captain ($24.95 or Php 1197.60).
|This is a side dish :P|
The Eggplant Parmigiana was served with pasta on the side while the Shell Steak a la Captain was topped with mushrooms, onions, and peppers.
The Eggplant Parmigiana was stuffed with cheese and topped with real tomato sauce and more cheese. This dish will surely make your day, especially if you love cheese.

I requested the steak to be served medium rare but I got medium so we had it replaced. The steak was flavorful enough that it didn't need sauce. The vegetables on top enhanced its taste as well.
Both dishes we have were quite generous that it will take three persons to finish one dish.
We weren't able to try more dishes as the servings were huge, so I will definitely go back to try their pizza and other dishes. The prices were reasonable and the service was excellent. Should you crave for authentic Italian food, head to The Bronx, and try Captain's.
Note: $1 = Php 48
