Serious Pie Restaurant Review

: Diners pack tall chairs at wooden bench-like tables in this dark, cozy space filled with subtle aromas from the wood-fired oven, the source of chef Tom Douglas' distinctive take on pizza. Choose from toppings like sweet fennel sausage and roasted peppers or Penn Cove clams with house-made pancetta to anoint the slightly burnt, blistered crusts; the lighter texture offers just the right amount of structure. For a milder bite, consider a pie with foraged mushrooms and truffled cheese. Seasonal starters could be a lacinato kale salad with Calabrian chiles, pine nuts and Parmesan. Although the beer selection is small, there's an array of appealing wines. Sweet endings include house-made cannoli with black currants and plum conserve.
