A chef formerly of Palena and Society Fair turns his attention to pies.
Very nicely done menu with plenty of smaller plates, so you can dine 'tapas' style if you wish. Also, the pizza is the best I have had anywhere in town--really reminds me of pizza in Tuscany, with big bubble crusty sections and very good sauces. I also like the triple concept--bar drinks only in front--food bar + drinks in center, and sit down restaurant in back.
Went to dinner here last night with a group of friends. First off, the space is gorgeous. It has original brick walls, lit up by candles. The light fixtures on the ceiling were made from the original beams in the building. We split the house salad (arugula, pine nuts, tomatoes, and avocado), the cachucco (sp?) which is a fish stew pasta, and the olive and artichoke pizza. All of these dishes were delicious. I had no room for dessert, so I can't comment on that. Can't wait to go back and try it. So happy to have a great Italian spot so close to us. We will definitely be back soon!
