Napolese, an Artisanal Pizzeria by Patachou Restaurant Review

: Peroni in hand, diners wait patiently for a table and ponder which of the artisan pizzas they'll have this visit. Regulars already know to share a kale salad with chickpeas, pumpkin seeds and a creamy roasted garlic dressing and nibble on complimentary olives before partaking of the pie of the night or the broken yolk margherita pizza that, yes, has a perfectly cooked egg on top. The BLT has local Smoking Goose jowl bacon, charred leeks and Taleggio. Ol Grandad's Pie is comforting with its braised sirloin tips and roasted peppers. Design your own with the fresh ingredients available if you’re a freethinker. Whatever the season, dessert will be a tasty cobbler with fruit as well as smooth gelato that’s made next door.
