The name is as cute as a button, but the wood-fired pizzas turned out of this kitchen are serious business. This cheery establishment shines the spotlight on a host of perfectly blistered pies, homemade pastas and an outstanding, easily overlooked pound cake that may just end up being the highlight of your meal—also wood-fired and finished with honey and whipped cream.
A seat at the counter offers diners a bird’s eye view of the chefs as they methodically roll out paper-thin pizza crusts, lacing them with tomato sauce, creamy mozzarella and a flutter of sea salt. Tender gnocchi made with brown butter and dyed orange from garnet yam may then arrive tossed with charred radicchio, hazelnuts, and cranberries.
Weekend brunch is a hit.
