Boogie Down Bites: Pugsley Pizza

A pizzeria in Belmont that's been in the Bronx for 50 years has been a second home to thousands of Fordham University students.

Sal and Pina Natale built Pugsley Pizza, and two of their sons work at the restaurant.

The walls of the restaurant are covered with photos of students, family, notes to the Natales and sayings like 'Love Is It," something Sal wrote to his wife years ago.

Pugsley Pizza's newest addition is jazz nights on Thursdays, when they turn the basement into a miniature jazz bar and have different musicians come to perform.
