Garlic Knot offers a family friendly environment, complete with a menu that includes New York style pizza made with the finest cheeses, fresh pizza dough, authentic old world sauce and an “Original” process consisting of traditional dough stretching, hand tossing and stone deck oven baking – consistently creating a superior “pizza pie”.
