La Fourno Restaurant Review

: You can get a pizza with practically every other step on South Street, but this place has a wood-burning oven that gives a nice char, and a spacious back room to indulge. Create your own pizza from the long list of toppings or have a calzone instead. There are lots of attractive salads and pasta dishes as well, including the house salad with sun-dried tomatoes and olives and gnocchi with Gorgonzola cream sauce. For dessert, try some homemade cannoli or tiramisu. And there's no corkage fee to bring your own wine or beer Tuesday and Friday.
