Excellent, Neapolitan-style pizza, counter-service surroundings.
The Twin Cities' first (and best) Neapolitan-style pizza-maker is a local success story, and a fine example of a smart growth-minded chain. The bubbled, charred crusts are expertly topped with a bevy of fresh, Italian-appropriate toppings, including first-rate mozzarella, simple crushed tomatoes, excellent olives and top-shelf cured meats and anchovies. Follow the menu's two dozen combination suggestions, or build your own. Lovely salads, too, and a small selection of wines and beers, all served in stylish, fun-loving surroundings, with quick-moving counter service. Dessert? Ice cream, from St. Paul's Izzy's. ( , )
