In this gem of a bar/pizza parlor, a statue of a Rubenesque woman is the center of the room, and regulars gather around her to sip Bloody Marys and debate this and that. The kitchen puts out a nice deep-dish, with a crispy crust and a well-spiced (if slightly sweet) sauce. We’d tell you to go for the Gino’s “special,” with its chunks of sausage and strips of green pepper. But really, with this atmosphere, your night’s going to be special no matter what you get.
