My husband and I ate here twice in the past week; the first time we tried a pasta dish, and we came back to check out their pizza.
The first visit was wonderful. We both had the Primo salad (a perfectly seasoned Caesar salad), and chose different pasta dishes, each with spicy Italian sausage. We also ordered a bottle of wine, and the server was very knowledgeable about the extensive wine list. (I also appreciated the book full of wine labels, so you can read more about each wine if you choose.) But by far the best part of our meal was the dessert. I think they called it a Bomba: vanilla & chocolate gelato wrapped around a core of nuts and maraschino cherry, inside a dark chocolate shell. It was amazingly good, and even my husband, who isn't really a chocolate lover, ate his share with pleasure.
We came back a couple of days later to try out the pizza, and chose the Romana (tomato sauce, mozzarella, salami, olives, capers, and anchovies). Yummy and tangy and salty; you need to love anchovies to order this one! The pizza oven is in a corner of the restaurant behind the eating bar, so you can see your pizza come out of the oven. Thin and crispy, but not like a cracker, tender crust and wonderful flavors. We had salad and wine with our pizza, and the 12-in. size made a perfect meal for two.
I love the small intimate feel of this restaurant, the red walls and huge black & white photographs, and the black woodwork. The friendly staff (and owner) made us feel at home, and we definitely will come again.
