A wood-burning oven imported from Tuscany lies at the heart of this tiny, six-table spot, which consistently offers a variety of fresh ingredients and made-to-order specialties. Personal pizzas, with herbed plum-tomato sauce and homemade mozzarella, are dished up plain or topped with a choice of nearly two-dozen embellishments such as wood-roasted tomatoes, Cajun chicken, and sweet or spicy sausage. But Abbondanza’s isn’t just a pizzeria: Thick, generous sandwiches are served on toasted homemade semolina and ciabatta; vodka cream sauce and shrimp pesto add zest to the pastas; dependable homemade soups are cooked daily. The real surprise, however, is Abbondanza’s salads. Served in large wooden bowls, these meals unto themselves are heaps of mixings and other extras like sunflower seeds, toasted almonds, and even Chinese noodles. The dining space is rather cozy but, given the cramped confines, you might do better ordering an affordable meal to go or for delivery.Recommended Dishes
