A recent entry on the Neapolitan pizza scene with a location smack in the center of bustling Little Italy, Il Casaro is rapidly developing a loyal and devoted following. The brief menu focuses on pizzas from the coal-fired oven that are made before your eyes by the pizzaiolo, and emerge in minutes achingly thin, light and bubbling to chewy perfection. The prosciutto pizza, made with San Daniele prosciutto, arugula, tomatoes, mozzarella, and raspa dura (a shaved Italian cheese) is a marvel of flavor. Sharing star billing is the mozzarella bar, featuring appetizer plates of buffalo, fior di latte and burrata cheese, and antipasti such as panuozzo—a kind of pizza-dough sandwich stuffed with cheese, sausage and broccoli rabe.
