Hearth Pizza Tavern Restaurant Review: A vibrant neighborhood joint, Hearth Pizza Tavern buzzes with children and families enjoying the wood-oven baked pizzas that exhibit crisp, chewy crusts topped with quality ingredients. Share an order of fried calamari to start, tender bites accompanied by a light but intensely flavored house-made tomato sauce and a lemon-coriander aïoli. Among the pies, we like the Great White Clam with its roasted cremini mushrooms and house-made fennel sausage. Lots of garlic, too. But that helps it go well with the DaVinci Chianti from the fairly basic wine list, most of which is offered by the glass. For dessert, go for the house-made donut "holes" paired with the salted caramel ice cream from local artisan ice cream maker Morelli's. Besides the pizze, check out the panini, burgers and flatbreads. Enjoy happy hour half-price pizza Mon.-Fri. from 4 p.m.-6 p.m., dine-in only. Other specials vary nightly, such as seafood stew on Fridays only. On Mondays, all bottles of wine are half price.
