To date, Andiamo continues to serve one of the best pizzas in an attractive, upscale, modern pizzeria.  All the pizzas are made to order in their brick oven and the ingredients are fresh and the selections are inventive. Bring a friend or two– the pies are 10″, 14″, or 16″.  If you’re not overly carb-conscious, the hot out-of-the-oven parmesan bread and garlic sticks with a warm tomato sauce on the side are scrumptious.  Frankie, one of the owners also serves up a Philly cheese steak named after him and a selection of panini. Free parking available.

Michael Schwartz of Michael’s Genuine in the Design District has recently taken over a defunct pizza parlor and proven, once again, that he knows how to do it better.  The polenta fries are reason enough to frequent this pizzeria. Homemade tomato catsup gives them just the right amount of sweet and spice, and a four-beer flight at lunch is the perfect match. Share an order with friends before continuing to one of the many unusual thin crust pizza combinations.  On one evening, the Florida rock shrimp pizza was a hit as well as a leek and potato pizza with béchamel and mozzarella.  Michael’s mouthwatering rendition of pulled pork, with fig and grilled onions atop a sizzling hot pie, has been a consistent hit at his namesake restaurant ever since he opened, and is a faultless choice here, as well.

Soups at lunch change daily and have deeply satisfying combinations, such as short rib and Poulet Rouge chicken soup with fennel, tomato, orzo and basil.  On another occasion, a white bean and ham soup garnished with crispy shallots and parsley was a hearty meal in itself. Michael invites visiting chefs to prepare pre-fixe dinners based upon a menu of their own design.  Make sure you’re on his email list to be notified of these special nights!

Melodies like  “Just One of Those Things” and “Ain’t Misbehavin,” are playing as you enter this new neighborhood offering from the same proprietors as Limoni, just two doors away.  Both spaces look remarkably similar, but the pizzeria continues it’s nostalgic feel with a collection of rusty utensils from grandma’s kitchen randomly scattered about the walls.

Thirty pizzas in 12” and 16” sizes offer something for everyone.  “Merci,” a white pie of ricotta, goat and Mozzarella cheese with sundried tomatoes and herbs is a crowd pleaser. The crust arrived perfectly crisp and oozing with cheese.  This unassuming spot offers a full compliment of tasty appetizers including an antipasti plate, spicy shrimp scampi and a tomato, eggplant bruschetta, infused with truffle oil.

Baked pastas such as manicotti, beef lasagna and a baked ziti with ricotta are well-executed classics.  Extra toppings, at $1.00-$3.00, permit the fussiest of diners to ad lib and customize a bit on the pizzas, calzones and stromboli.  All the food arrives piping hot.
