This tiny, elegant Neapolitan-style pizzeria is always packed, but worth the wait. On any given night, there are about half a dozen pizzas on the menu, subject to seasonality and availability of ingredients; the mushroom pie is a special treat.

East Side Pies

Try the fine selection of thin-crust pies for pickup or delivery. Go for the anchovies, black olives, and feta or the Wild Blue with salmon, capers, red onions, and goat cheese. We're afraid of the Tremor, but the garlic knots are great.
