WHY True Neapolitan-style pies in a pleasant sit-down space with beer and wine.
WHAT According to the menu, Neapolitan-style pizza is meant to be enjoyed without excessive toppings. The thin, chewy crust has a distinct sourdough tang, while the tomato sauce is bright and fresh. Pies are simply topped with buffalo mozzarella, a scattering of fennel sausage slices or proscuitto and arugula. Snack on marinated olives or bacon-wrapped dates while the pizzas are painstakingly prepped for their quick tour in the wood-burning oven. A notch up from most of the area’s casual pizza places, the menu is almost deceptively simple—but the pies are the real deal.
