Peasant Recs

I am going to Peasant for the first time and am looking for recommendations on what to order and/or what to avoid.

Thanks in advance.

    I loved the lasagna and gnocchi. Pizzas are supposed to be good, but I haven't had them. Next visit (I'm going in a couple of weeks), I might have to have the liver Frank Bruni blogged about a few weeks ago:

      I love the duck appetizer. As previously mentioned, the lasagna is also very good. If I remember right, the first time I went, they had an osso buco special that was outstanding as well.

        I've enjoyed the pasta with pesto as well as the spit-fired chicken. Both were great and priced right. If you can ignore the noise level (and echoing), whackadoo staff and slightly annoying (maybe it was just the times I was there) people (myself included?), you'll have a great time.

          The wood-fired pizza is an excellent app.
