After a two-year hiatus, decorated pie slinger Mathieu Palombino returns to the borough with this 50-seat Williamsburg pizza shop. Rustic trappings include pressed-tin ceilings, pinewood flooring and metal light fixtures. Out of a Naples-imported wood-burning oven come favorites like the Margherita and the Sopressata Piccante (spicy pepperoni, fior di latte). Palombino expands the menu with new items, including his first calzone—a sausage-and-cheese variety dubbed the Rocky—plus the Melanzane pie (roasted eggplant, mint). Sidle up to the eight-seat marble-topped bar for cocktails, beers and regional Italian wines.
