After the father-and-son team behind this popular Westhampton Beach pizzeria decided to expand to New York, it made sense for them to land in this similarly ritzy stretch of the West Village. The restaurant is mostly tables with a small bar, exposed wooden rafters fit for an upstate house, brown and yellow paint up front, and white bricks surrounding the small kitchen powered by a brick oven. A blackboard on the wall lists off specials, which one late summer evening included a shoretown signaling lobster roll. The regular menu includes a handful of mostly Italian-inspired starters tender meatball sliders with a smear of goat cheese and kick of Calabrian chile, potato croquettes with pancetta and truffle aïoli and salads like a caprese with burrata. Pizza is the main show, though, and Brunetti delivers. Those meatballs make it onto a pie with both mozzarella and ricotta, and there’s another topped with thin pinwheels of spicy soppressata that plays deliciously with the creamy house mozzarella. But the restaurant points to the vongole as its signature pie, and its Long Island bonafides as evidence of its superior quality. Namely because they have access to local clams and connections with Suffolk County clam diggers, and it’s true that the bivalves served here have a particularly clean, clear flavor. Chopped and served abundantly like they’re going out of the style atop a bed of herbed garlic butter, the clam’s salty sweetness cuts the fat perfectly.
