What comes out of the 900-degree, wood-fired oven at Trattoria San Giorgio are not just pizzas, says owner Joe Comizio, but Neapolitan pizzas, which is a recognized dish made to exacting standards. They’re far superior to what you get in a cardboard box — thinner, crispier and with more taste. Comizio says he views each one as he if were an artist “painting on a blank canvas.” The restaurant also serves up other Italian favorites: Salad Caprese, minestrone with fresh vegetables, gamberi fra diavolo (large shrimp “hot as hell”), pollo parmigiana (chicken in white wine sauce with melted parmesan cheese). The trattoria has a small but good wine list, and for dessert, torta caprese — a traditional flourless chocolate cake with ground almonds and dusted with confectioners’ sugar — is a winner.
