About
Tucked away in the back of The Betsy, The Alley is a modern trattoria serving Neapolitan-style pizza, homemade pasta, charcuterie, salads, Italian-style cocktails, beer & wine. Inspired by timeless Italian techniques, Chef Laurent Tourondel spent over a year perfecting his signature pizza dough, hand-stretched to order by our artisan pizzaiolos, topped with ingredients that would make Nonna proud, then baked to perfection in our earthstone oven. Insider’s Tip: try the whipped ricotta and finish off your meal with a frozen orange gelato. Retro photos and neon artwork highlight the cozy dining room and open kitchen, while bistro lights illuminate our outdoor tables lining the bustling pathway
