- Upper East Siders have been counting their blessings since this convivial pizza newcomer moved into the neighborhood. The space is tiny and rustic, but also inviting and gracious. More than 20 varieties of Neapolitan-style pizza temptingly emerge from the hand-built, wood-fired oven. Add to this a unique regional specialty hailing from Campania calledpanuozzo. Simply stated, it‘s a cross between a calzone and a panino, comprised of a puffy plank of freshly baked pizza dough stuffed with an array of fine quality ingredients such as roasted pork, mozzarella, and baby arugula for thepanuozzo di Bartolomei. Co-owner Fabio Casella is an authority on Italian cheeses and, as one would hope, the excellent toppings here include house-made mozzarella.
