The husband and wife team of Jim and Lisa Cervone, who brought us Ayalada, have kindly graced us with an adjacent pizza parlor that builds on their reputation for using organic and locally-sourced ingredients. The dough uses a special blend of Italian flours and the natural fermentation process yields a light & crispy crust. Their weekly specials are super creative and include pies such as Pizza alla Vodka, Chicken Bacon Ranch, and their ever popular White Mushroom using locally-foraged roasted cremini and shiitake mushrooms finished with truffle oil. Vegan Friendly, Gluten and Dairy Free Options.
