Our favorite meals here have been outdoors under the stars next to the fragrant herb gardens. But when the weather moves us to the rather bare-bones inside, what comes to the table makes up for the lack of atmosphere. The brick oven central to the cement block dining room is the sole source of fire at this Neapolitan-style pizzeria, cooking everything from lovely antipasti (delectable roasted vegetables, flatbreads, goat cheese, craft sausages) to thin, crisp-crusted pies (we focused on a version with caramelized onion and house-made sausage, simple enough for a kid, sophisticated enough for us adults). We also shared a watermelon salad with croutons, balsamic vinegar, and mint, a perfect foil to the rich pizza. The offerings are all sourced from area farms or made in-house, and the service is informal but professional in all the important ways.
