Magherita Extra $13.95
Ambiance is amazing, a loft like space that reminded us in scale to Dosa on Fillmore. The place is definitely hopping and was completely packed by 6:30 on the Saturday we went; especially the two bars! We both agreed it's a great place for a group meal with close friends given the ability to cater to more that a two person crowd.
On to the pizza, the dough was incredibly chewy after a two-minute bake in the 900-degree oven. The chewiness is undoubtedly a byproduct of the famed Napolitano zero zero flour. Of course the buffalo mozzarella and tomato sauce were top notch. However overall it was not memorable. Similar pizzas are being made all over the city. Instead the inventive cocktails (picco collins and spiced pimms cup), organic beets with faro & pistachios and wild nettle angnotti with chanterelle did steal the show for us.
Bottom line, we'd go back with close friends for happy hour or a nice night out, but won't become regulars.
