Ecco PizzaTeca and Lounge
Ecco introduces itself with menus for a delectable Italian-style lunch, dinner, or wild pizza spree. Antipastis such as the chilled octopi and potati of Ecco’s polipo e patate ($10), salad-accompanied bruschetta ($7), or bread-crumb-crusted calamari skewers ($10) carouse happily on tongues before sliding delightfully past uvulas. Guests should be mindful of the lobster ravioli ($16) and the melanzane parmigiana ($14), which often attempt to storm uninvited into mouths that are already enjoying zestily diverse pizzas. These pizzas’ doughy décors compete with each other in the form of sausaged and mushroomed boscaiolas ($12), margheritas ($10) with basil and mozzarella, and vegetarianas ($12) annexed by armies of lusty legumes. Between oversized bites, gullets can be cleared with bottled sodas ($2), coffees and teas ($1.50–$3), or a selection from the wine list.
