Posto? Porto? 17th & 2nd

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?

    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.

        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.
