  1. 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.

    1. 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.

      1. 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.
