This new authentic Neopolitan pizza joint was a long time in the making and a welcome addition to a neighborhood with limited options for eating out (corner Dupont and Dovercourt). Finally visited tonight and picked a few pizzas to go. Very quick and friendly service and delicious pizza. Crust was chewy and nicely blistered and toppings were very good (loved the fior di latte). The menu on their website hasn't been updated and it looks like there are many more options on the restaurant menu. will definitely go back and eat in next time.

    The website has been updated to reflect the current menu. Went there on Saturday, beginning of March on a Groupon. Called ahead for reservations and a lovely lady said no problem...however might have to wait a few moments for a table to clear. Got there at 8 and was promptly seated by Nancy in a lovely two person booth. The place was crowded but the room was dark, warm and you could smell all the pizzas cooking in the oven in the room. Pleasant server bought us Organic Steam Whistle which was on tap. I started with Just the Blues salad- shredded romaine, carrots, beets, house-made blue cheese dressing finished with flash-fried capers and pistachio dust- $10 nicely executed. Husband had Baby Arugula (traditional)- fresh lemon, DOP olive oil, shaved parmesan reggiano- $8 which he enjoyed. My pizza, the Capo- DOP San Marzano tomatoes, smoked provola, hot sopressata, red onion, fresh basil, finished with hot honey- $17 was excellent (you can really taste the honey!) drizzled with the chili infused olive oil they have on the table. I cannot comment much on the husband's pizza (the fior di latte was divine on it) except he ate it all. No room for dessert but I can say that there were many orders for the tiramisu on the tables. The restaurant is located a ten minute drive from us and I would certainly go back again for the pizza.
