Price Range:

$15-21 for pizza; varied but expensive wines

 

Menu:

Limited for now since they just opened. The pizzas are wonderful; they have classic style Margherita (only $16) and even some more expensive specialty pies such as the Pulcinella—featuring fresh prosciutto cherry tomatoes– and the Pizzarte—with speck and zucchini flowers.

 

Décor:

Funky, clean and simple. I love how understated and modern it is. Also, having the upstairs is perfect for bigger parties.
Wait Staff:

The wait staff here is bubbly, enthusiastic, and helpful. Most of the wait staff at PizzArte are Native Italians, some are actually fromNapoli, and most chatter with each other in-between serving tables. The ambience of this restaurant is wonderful, cozy and familiar. Waiting for your pizza you feel transported; customers sip delicious imports, admire the funky artwork, share stories fromItalywith the wait staff and bask in the smells emitting from the authentic wood fired oven.

 

Food:

The food is remarkably fresh, tasty, and has a distinctly smoky and tangy aroma to it. I loved how easily one could share the food, and still feel so satisfied at the end of the meal. My favorite dish was easily the Diavola pizza, and paired with a dry red wine such as the Debbiolo, I was in heaven.

 

Drink:

The wine list is wonderful, varied and relatively cheap for what you will be getting. I must say, I was immediately impressed to find that there was only one Chianti on the wine list, and not a single Barolo to be found. One of their best sellers was a Banfi, not surprising, but still a little different. Overall,  I found the list to be fairly simple and very fitting for traditional, light, crispy southern-style pizzas.

 

This is my new favorite spot, and I will be back often!
