Sometimes you’re craving a perfectly made pizza with your favorite toppings while you’re on a family vacation. Maybe you’ve been out on the beach all day and worked up an appetite, or you just don’t have the time to cook in your vacation rental or wait at a sit-down restaurant.
Whenever that Italian food craving strikes, you have Oma’s in Bradenton Beach available to make your perfect pie. It’s also located near one of the most attraction filled and interesting destinations on Anna Maria Island – the historic Bridge Street area.
A substantial menu filled with Italian favorites
The pizza at Oma’s is certainly one of the first things any new visitor should try, as fans of the restaurant often rave about it online. Pizza can be ordered by the slice or in three sizes, and there a few specialty pizzas available, but the best way to order pizza here is to choose your own toppings.
The topping choices include onions, sausage, tomatoes, meatballs, green peppers, garlic, mushrooms, cheese, hot peppers, anchovies, olives, bacon, ham, salami, spinach, pepperoni and pineapple. You have just about every topping you could want to custom create your ideal pizza.
The pizza is very filling and baked in true Sicilian style. Customers love the crust and the freshness of the ingredients can really be tasted in every bite. The calzones offer an alternative to the pizza for those that prefer them, and they can be made with all the same toppings and are served in generous portions.
If you aren’t craving pizza at the moment, you can choose from several other enticing options such as hero sandwiches, soups, salads and special dinners.
The menu is vast here and full of Sicilian favorites, so don’t get lost while picking your meal! The hero sandwich choices alone include chicken parmesan, veal with mushrooms, parmesan or peppers, sausage, meatball, roast beef, Italian steak, turkey, ham or salami.
Other options include many types of Italian pasta such as stuffed shells, tortellini, fettucine, linguini, rigatoni, and ziti with your choice of meat or seafood. House wines and a selection of mostly domestic beers are also available as well as a few imported options.
When ordering, think small, because an order for one person is typically enough to feed two! Portion sizes are really gigantic here and you’ll have easily leftovers if you aren’t careful, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing!
You can easily walk to Oma’s Pizza after a day exploring the nearby historic Bridge Street Pier or other attractions. So, grab a pizza or your favorite Italian dish here, as it’s sure to be made the proper Sicilian way!
