Roosevelt Island Mobile Food Trucks Side By Side - Eddie's Pizza and La Bella Torte Italian Pastries With Pier NYC Waterfront Restaurant Make An Exciting Time For Roosevelt Island

Eddie's Pizza and La Bella Torte Mobile Food Trucks were side by side this evening on Roosevelt Island's West Road across from Starbucks serving hungry Roosevelt Islanders and visitors. I did not have anything from Eddie's tonight but did have the Chocolate Cheese Cake from La Bella Torte and it was very good.

It's an exciting time on Roosevelt Island with the opening of Pier NYC Waterfront Restaurant

as well as the new food options and competition to existing restaurants provided by the Mobil Food trucks - and more food truck are coming soon.

Also, Main Street Master Leaseholder Hudson Related will hopefully be bringing in some more restaurants to the middle of Roosevelt Island in addition to the new Coach Scot's Main Street Sweets Ice Cream Store that will be opening in a few months.

As one reader put it:
Our little island is growing up ... finally! :-)
I agree.

Cheesecake and cannoli's were delish!

I wonder if La Bella Torte's prices are sustainable here on Roosevelt Island. A small, and it is really a small one, cannoli is $2. They are pretty good but not good enough for that kind of money. I have to check back and see how the other pastries are priced.

Order some cannoli's and a pizza, everything was great. Interesting style on the pizza, not quite my favorite, but it was pretty good (and a large pie for 14 bucks o_O). The connoli's were also great - with all these new food options I am going to get even more fat, lol.

Got a regular 10 inch with arugula. A little steep on the price 7.50 but that's NY for ya. It filled me up for sure. Nice to have these treats available as food trucks. They said it was a 2 week trial period to see if the residents like it. And I'm sure to see if they can afford the rent. So let's show the support! Haha

Nonnos will Run THE pizza truck. Off THE Island. Just like he did to dominos pizza at THE farmers market on Saturdays so buy Your pizza NOW as time is running out.

If only I was supposed to eat wheat and dairy... :(   .... happy to see the trucks. Waiting on the lobster rolls (without the roll of course).
