The folks behind Via Carducci are behind this tiny panini/salad/small plates/pizza spot—which really is a takeout operation with a few tables crammed in, but whatever. The pizza is fine, the arancini is passable, the grilled calamari isn't terrible (but almost!). In other words, this is probably the most unmemorable food you'll have all week. If you're looking for something to nosh on while watching HBO, the place does deliver. Then again, so do a lot of other places in the 'hood.
