Bringing Westhampton to the West Village, this 65-seat slice-slinger is the first NYC outpost of Michael and Jason Brunetti’s cult Long Island pie shop. Trained under Motorino’s Mathieu Palombino, the father-son team pulls 20 pizza varieties from the Ferrara brick oven, including Neapolitan classics (marinara, Margherita) and newfangled rounds like the funghi e cipolla (shiitake mushrooms, honey-truffle oil and goat cheese). The Manhattan menu also includes Amalfi-inspired small plates: Italian tuna with capers and cannellini beans, and baby octopus stewed with tomatoes. Snag a stool at the white marble bar overlooking the blistering hearth for craft beers (Sixpoint’s the Crisp, Sesonette) and Italian wine on tap.
