Time Out Says

3 out of 5 stars

Neapolitan-style pizza by way of New Jersey is on the menu at this Chestnut Street newcomer. Settle into the dining room, decorated with mismatched furnishings and pops of colorful graffiti, to work your way through the menu of sharable salads, vegetables and antipasti, and pizzas that are both traditional (think marinara and margherita) and new wave (the Winter Betty comes with goat cheese béchamel, thyme, garlic and Brussels sprouts). Regardless of whether the pies are topped with housemade mozz or vegan parm and cashew ricotta, they all pair perfectly with an approachable list of wallet-friendly wines.
