When you walk into TPJ, you'll see a sleek, black vespa near the door. Its glossy exterior matches the chic ambiance of the dining room, where guests dig into authentic pizzas and pasta plates. But that vespa is the only thing that requires gas in the restaurant. To cook their pies, the chefs need only a mix of oak and almond wood, which blazes at 800 degrees and cooks the house-made dough in as little as 90 seconds. The wood-burning ovens are every bit as Italian as the vespa, however; as they were made in Italy especially for TPJ.
The pizzas themselves arrive layered in toppings from rosemary ham to sweet peppers. You can create your own—based on a selection of five types of cheese and three types of sauces—or try a specialty version, such as the Gamberoni: rock shrimp, tomatoes, arugula, and crushed red peppers. Pastas, meanwhile, mix angel hair noodles with steamed mussels, and salmon with fettucini. The menu also features paninis, salads, and desserts, including dough balls with Nutella.
And if you're looking for recommendations (or the WiFi password), just look at the large blackboard wall, where guests can write short reviews. The board's focal point is a clock that tells the current time in Milan, which can give you a valid excuse if you end up staying out past your bedtime.
