    The setting in Apizz is nice and cosy (and especially inviting with the cooler weather), We enjoyed the food but found the a few dishes a bit too rich and over salted. The pizza and rib eye were however perfect.

      If its dinner for 2 and you have feelings for the other person more than friendship you must go to Apizz. I agree with Lucia that Apizza is mostly pastas and less meats and game.

        You can't go wrong w/either. I'd decide based on atmosphere (Peasant is larger and has a rustic warehouse atmosphere, if that makes sense; Apizz is small, intimate, and romantic); menu (Peasant focuses more on cooked meats and game from their wood oven; Apizz has some great pastas, including the gnocchi). I'd personally give the edge on food to Peasant, but it is more expensive as well.
