Courtesy of the same owners behind the posh Alimento, this is a neighborhood pizza joint done right. Familiar items aside, the kitchen boasts a clear eye toward quality ingredients and careful presentations. For instance, hand-breaded mozzarella sticks with chunky marinara bring out the kid in all of us, while pizza reigns supreme at lunch and dinner. The latter features such adult inflections as fiery chilies alongside more typical trappings like pineapple on the Hawaiian. The stepmother Italian sub is addictive and not unlike the salads, which are far from a tag-along, highlighting large portions with tasty blends. Desserts are somewhat limited but with a creatively rendered tiramisu and hefty wedge of cookies & cream semifreddo pie, who’s complaining?
