Eduardo's Enoteca

The spelling change for this spin-off of Edwardo’s Natural Pizza is meant to distinguish it as a more sophisticated cousin to Edwardo’s much-loved spinach-stuffed pies. But the Neapolitan pizza bears little resemblance to the poofy-edged beauties of Naples, and the lineup of pasta includes a dry bolognese (yes, it’s possible) without a lick of salt. The highlight (and perhaps the only thing in the place that seems to have been given proper attention) is the wine list, which diners should gravitate to instead of the amateur cocktails.

One late afternoon this spring, I stopped in to Eduardo's Enoteca. It's a small and cozy space, and given the time, it was fairly empty. I ordered a 6oz glass of white wine (you may also order 4oz glasses) and decided to have what I am calling "Breakfast in a Bowl": tender potato gnocchi, pancetta, sage butter and a perfectly cooked fried egg on top. It was delicious.  I returned a few weeks later and the outdoor seating had just opened, doubling the number of tables, and although the dish (I ordered the same thing, I loved it so much) was again perfect, the service was a bit rushed as they were mostly concentrating on the larger numbers of outdoor diners. Whatever. I'll go back, because my yummy breakfast in a bowl is too good to let one day of 'off' service keep me away.

The pizza is so so good (so is the pasta!) One waitress was visibly annoyed when we came in with a large group (the restaurant was completely empty) but the food is too good to let that knock the experience. One of my favorite casual lunch spots in Old Town.
