Pizza Moda - Berkeley

Robert Lauriston Mar 29, 2013 11:53 AM

Former Fellini / Divino space, been open for a while. Inside Scoop reports the owner is the guy who started Fellini, the chef worked at Pizzaiolo, Boot & Shoe, and Gioia, on Wednesdays they're offering any bottle of wine on their by-the-glass list (regularly $20-30) on their list for $15, and Thursdays there's no corkage.



Currently open Wed.-Sun., 5:30-9:30 (10:00 Fri. & Sat.). Any pizza can be made gluten-free, any of the vegetarian combos can be made vegan. Menu includes some Fellini-ish starters and a few desserts.

      I hope the pizza is better than Fellini's. I had one of the worst pizzas of my life there. But if the cook is a veteran of Pizzaiolo and Gioia, it ought to be good.

        Tried it last night.

        Very nice shaved asparagus salad with almonds ($7.50).

        Perfectly fried fritto misto with sweet potato, asparagus, fennel ($8).

        Very good pizza with Fra'Mani sausage, red onion, and kale ($14 small / $18 large). The crust had good flavor, nice balance of crunch and chew, right amount of scorch.

        Some good beers on tap $4.50 a pint, nice selection of wines $6-8 a glass. Wednesday night all BTG wines are $15 a bottle, Thursday night free corkage.

        Generous portions, very good value. Overall pretty similar to Fellini but with better food and I'm very happy they have a pork option for the pizza.

        As always, lots of free parking in their own lot and easy wheelchair access.
