I noticed a new place on the NE corner of 17th & 2nd. The name's Posto, Porto, or something like that. Anyone have any info?

      18th & 2nd. I tried it last night for the first time. It's actually terrific. Very good, crispy thin crust and an enormous array of toppings....including yummy things like merguez and chicken-jalapeno sausage. they also have homemade ravioli specials which i didn't try (yesterday there were 3, lobster, porcini or broccoli rabe); cute space, a nice addition to the neighborhood.

        The base pizza, before toppings, is not that tasty. Flavorless crust and mild sauce. The place is nice inside, but it's not worth a special trip.

          I disagree. I think the pizza is quite tasty. The crust doesn't have much flavor, but it's super thin and has a nice crunch to it. I think the cheese and sauce taste great.

          I go regularly and get a plain cheese pizza every time.

            I hate to admit it, but I have to agree with NativeNewYorker on this one. The crust has a wonderful "crunch", but thats about it.....at least for me anyway.
