- Antipasti: the salumi plate
- Pizza: the Funghi with fresh mozzarella, mushrooms, and truffle oil
- Dessert: tiramisu
Where to Sit: A seat at the bar is the best spot in the house for watching the chefs as they slide pizzas in and out of the wood-burning brick oven.
When to Go: For cheaper drinks and food, swing by during happy hour, which takes place from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday.
Inside Tip: Give the babysitter the night off. This spot is family friendly, featuring a kids’ menu and crayons for occupying them before the food arrives.
Margherita pizza: a thin-crust pizza with basil, mozzarella, and tomato sauce. The green, white, and red toppings represent the Italian flag as a gesture originally intended to impress Italy’s Queen Margherita in the late 1800s.
Speck: cured pork leg seasoned with juniper, laurel, and rosemary
