While its menu features the pasta, lunch-rush panini, and one-person pizza options typical of many red-sauce joints, the lounge leanings of this Brooklyn Heights eatery differentiates it from your standard mom-and-pop pizzeria. Lined with tables (mostly for two) that run adjacent to its well-stocked wine bar, the trattoria's narrow quarters are improved by a polished, modern aesthetic. This sleek, date-night niche culminates in an open kitchen where Italian cooks turn the menu’s many pies inside a tiled, wood-fed oven. Starters are the strong suit here, including perky salads. Each of the sixteen personal pizzas, along with two additional seasonal specialties (rotated daily), has enough on-page character to pique interest and inspire repeat orders, but exposure to an overly hot oven causes even the most playful topping combination to suffer. Consistently charred, gummy-centered crusts detract from charmers like the Pugliese, topped with crumbled sausage and broccoli rabe, or the Siciliana topped with long, shoe-sole-shaped cuts of grilled eggplant.
