Food and drink
Everything tastes fresh and is artfully prepared. If you're a pizza connoisseur you'll appreciate the high-quality meats and cheeses used for toppings. The restaurant serves a number of craft beers and has a full wine selection as well.
Start with an antipasti but don't fill up on too many. You came here for the pizza after all. The margherita offers a perfect balance of basil, tomato and mozzarella. I love the stracciatella, with basil, olive oil and sea salt. My friends like the crimini mushroom and spicy sausage pizza.
The 36-seat eatery features marble-topped tables, wood chairs, a tin ceiling and subway tiled walls. The crowd is mainly younger couples and singles.
Service can be a bit spotty. One night you may get served quickly, another night it's a bit of a wait. Go during the week to avoid the crowds.
On East 12th Street, but far from the maddening crowds.
Dinner for two will cost about $60. The restaurant runs prix fixe lunch specials that run to $13 per person.
The restaurant's main branch is located in Graham Avenue in Brooklyn.
