The simplest things can sometimes be the most difficult to get right but that’s not La Mia’s problem. This pizzeria nails the straightforward slice then stumbles when it attempts anything elaborate. The thin-crust slice with its dusting of cornmeal on the bottom is well-balanced by fresh tomato, basil, and mozzarella. Add substantial toppings like breaded chicken or eggplant, and you’ll find that the pie literally can’t carry it off. The menu extends well beyond the pizza and the few (overcooked) pastas posted on the board behind the counter: heroes, buffalo wings, calamari... Much of it’s done sturdily and without fanfare, just like the white-walled space with its dozen utilitarian wooden tables.
