La Piazza al Forno

For dinner tonight, Patty and I tried La Piazza al Forno. We ordered a 14" Goodfella (margherita - tomato sauce and fresh mozzarella - $11) and added sausage as a topping ($2). The pizzas here are pretty straight-forward and traditional (total of 6 on the menu w/ 25 toppings available).

Our pizza was very good. I thought the tomato sauce was a tiny bit too sweet, but Patty thought it was fine. The sausage was flavorful and I liked that the pizza wasn't too oily.

It seems like a nice, friendly neighborhood pizza joint. If we lived here or were in the area, we'd probably stop by again. While we both liked the pizza, we wouldn't go out of our way for it (unlike LGO, Pizza a Metro, Pizzeria Bianco, and Cibo). I'd put it on about the same level as Grimaldi's.
