Going to Apizz - Any Recommendations?

Hi all - my husband and I are going to Apizz this Friday after reading some stellar reviews. I was looking at the menu and the primis look like appetizers and the secondis look like pastas mainly. I was just wondering what's a good amount of food to be shared by 2? Should we order 1 primi and 2 secondis? We were thinking of the margherita pizza and the gnocchi. Any recommendations are greatly appreciated!

  1. Your 1+2 idea should work fine if you're not huge eaters. I can't speak to the pizza but I'd definitely have the meatballs as the other main--they're excellent (and easy to share).

    1. Yes the meatballs are amazing - one of you must order them!

      1. All tables are started with tasty bread and tomato/ricotta - I found it made pizza unnecesary!

        1. I haven't had the margherita pizza, but the gnocchi are some of the best in the city. Portions are pretty substantial, so 1 primi and 2 secondi should be more than enough. I often skip primi and just have a secondi and a dessert. As eeee says, the bread w/ricotta and tomato sauce is a pretty good starter in itself.

          1. The gnocchi with honey braised short ribs is very good.

              My boyfriend and I had a WONDERFUl dinner at Apizz about a month ago. He had the meatballs, which were extremely flavorful and tender. I had the gnocchi with the braised short ribs and it was one of the best dishes I've ever had...I nearly picked up my bowl and licked it clean it was that good. Great atmosphere and very attentive, yet unobtrusive service. Great place!!

                The gnocchi and short ribs are incredible.
