Owners Margherita Stewart Sagan and Sheryl Rogat started Piccino in a tiny space in Dogpatch, with a pizza dough recipe passed down through generations from Sagan's mother. Since then, they've moved into a giant yellow barn next door and sparked a Dogpatch renaissance of butchers, bakers, and messenger-bag makers. Thin-crust pizzas are still the focus of the menu, topped with everything from housemade sausage and roasted mushrooms to pancetta and pea tendrils. They've augmented the pizzas with main course options such as pork and beef polpette, and milk-braised pork with chickpeas, hungarian peppers, and salsa verde.
