Ninety percent of alleged UFO sightings can be easily explained as falling meteors, swamp-gas reflections, or doughy orbs hurled into orbit by Herculean pizza makers. Enjoy earthbound eats with today's Groupon: for $8, you get $16 worth of Italian American fare at SoLo Pizza.
SoLo Pizza fills hollow stomachs with a menu of casual Italian American edibles, including the main attraction: pizza cooked in a wood-fired oven. The Adriatico pizza is a pleasing pie comprising extra-virgin olive oil and artichoke hearts tossed among plum tomatoes, spinach, black olives, onions, all tucked beneath a crocheted quilt of mozzarella and feta ($6.95–$15.95). In addition to build-your-own pizza options ($4.95–$12.95+), diners can dive fork-first into a pile of leafy greens, such as the barbecue-chicken chop salad, graced with crispy white onions, roma tomatoes, and crowned by a drizzling of balsamic vinaigrette ($11.95). To help prevent meals from feeling lonelier than an ear at a silent film festival, pair the feast with a selection from the quaint wine list.
While dining, soak up the restaurant's laid-back atmosphere or become hypnotized by the mosaic of flames surrounding the hungry mouth of the wood-fired oven. A sleek marble counter topped with granite completes the interior's sleek aesthetic, which was masterminded by local eye-candy factory Flux Design.
