Baba Louie’s - Great Barrington, Massachusetts

First, learn the code: When Baba Louie’s owner Paul Masiero (younger brother of Matt and Chris Masiero, co-owners of Guido’s Fresh Marketplace) says small, he means large; when he says large, he means ridiculous. A small salad here feeds four adults. The garnish, alone, on Dawn’s Delight ($10.50 small; $19.95 family size assumes a total lack of family planning) has enough gorgonzola, julienned pears, dried cranberries and roasted walnuts on the greens to fulfill the minimum daily requirement of every known nutrient. The sourdough pizzas are thin-and-crispy-crusted below, hearty on top. Riccardo’s Famosa ($12.95 small; $17.95 large) features, in addition to tomato sauce and fresh mozzarella, chevre, sundried tomatoes, asiago, calamata olives, roasted garlic, basil and parmesan.  One large pie is plenty for four moderate eaters, as long as they’ve already taken the edge off with a “small” salad. The only thing that isn’t over-sized here is the check: two couples can get out for $40 or so per pair. And that includes a large carafe of the house red.
