Ahhh...Ray's Pizza! I remember my very first visit to Ray's twelve years ago. It was my first time to New Bedford, meeting my husband's family and introducing them as well to three month old baby Bugga Michael...So many good memories from that trip and I fell head over heels for New Bedford!
We have some unique cuisine here with our high Portuguese population and one favorite that you'd be hard pressed to find anywhere else in the country is linguica, which is a smoke cured pork Portuguese sausage that is incredibly delicious! I had my first taste of linguica on a pizza from Ray's twelve years ago and I've been hooked ever since!
Ray's pizza has a super thin crust and, along with linguica, they offer all sorts of yummy toppings from the typical sausage and pepperoni, to eggplant, spinach, clams, meatballs and more (but no banana peppers! *gasp!*) I love their Blonde El Greco-spinach with feta and onions, and I need to try the Clams Casino-bacon, clams, and garlic...getting hungry just thinking about it!
Ray's also has a full menu of Italian favorites, pasta dishes, subs, salads, and even party platters to go. It's all eat-in or take out, no delivery, but it's a cozy little restaurant right on Acushnet--a great spot for people watching while you're waiting for your food. I love it there, the pizza is fantastic and I'd recommend it in a heartbeat as my favorite pizza in New Bedford!
