Pizzeria Posto - Rhinebeck, New York

It takes a certain amount of guts for a restaurant to offer a limited menu, even if it’s a pizzeria. Especially when it’s a pizzeria located in a region that’s nothing if not rich with New York pizza experts. But Pizzeria Posto in Rhinebeck ably brings its culinary confidence to the plate. This is pizza as good as it is in the city. But it’s different, too — more like what you might find on a lucky day in Italy. Owner Patrick Amedeo (who formerly owned Amedeo’s Pizzeria in Lagrangeville) opened his restaurant in the charming but easily missed courtyard off East Market Street. One not-so-secret factor in his success: the authentic Italian wood-fired oven that was shipped from Modena, Italy. The menu offers six 12-inch pizzas ($10-$16) in masterful combinations, such as the sensational Mama Mia, a combination of fennel sausage with wood-fired onions and smoked mozzarella; and the Morandi, with pistachios, red onions, rosemary and Grana Padano (an Italian cheese similar to Parmesan). The salads ($7.50 - $12) are inspired (the Spinaci contains tender spinach with bits of mild goat cheese, bacon, mushrooms and a lovely sherry vinegar dressing) and are served with complimentary fresh bread. There’s a generous wine list and a beer selection with both Italian and American options.
