La Pizzeria Arrivederci Restaurant Review

: La Pizzeria Arrivederci is a cozy spot down the street from owner Antonino Mastellone's other eatery, Arrivederci. It gained a loyal following nearly upon opening --- word traveled that fast. The mood is fun and festive, and the food is simple but tasty. There are more than 20 pizza choices on the menu, along with starters, salads and pastas. All pies have the crisp but chewy crusts that pizza aficionados seek out. Go for a local favorite like the University Avenue pizza topped with mascarpone, mozzarella, arugula and pine nuts, or make a more traditional choice like the Salamino Piccante with tomato sauce, mozzarella and salame piccante (a.k.a. pepperoni). Pair your pie with one of the many reasonably priced Italian red wines and you will swear you're in the motherland. Not in the mood for pizza? Try the caprese sandwich on homemade bread, open-face omelets or grilled salmon.
