Profile

This venue is closed.

Sebastiano Cappitta’s third uptown Italian restaurant is a welcome addition to deli-dominated Hamilton Heights. A few bare walls could use some warmth, and the wraparound bar has Skittles-colored cushions, but students at City College across the street don’t seem to mind. The focus here is the wood-fired oven, where the Naples-born chef pulls out simple but satisfying thin-crust pies. Coccola’s namesake pizza is a balance of chew and savor, with daubs of milky ricotta and mozzarella commingling with slivers of ham on a light, bright smear of tomato sauce. Serving as a crunchy counterpoint to the delicate Neapolitan pies is the selection of panuozzos, like a sharp-flavored prosciutto panini. Menu sections for pastas and mains are short for a reason — the bland mozzarella-filled gnocchi is one of the weaker dishes here. Stick to antipasti such as meatballs, which are firm and flavorful in a chunky red sauce. Paired with a pie or panini, it could make an ample meal for two for under $20.
