Cinecitta Ristorante & Bar Review

 

We liked pizzas at Cinecitta but didn't think they were particularly special.  We didn't think the appetizer (caesar salad) and dessert (tiramisu) we tried were good.

 

Some details:

 

Upon being seated, we were presented with a basket of sliced white bread and balsamic vinegar.  The white bread was good--certainly not store bought--though it was still merely white bread.  This, however, can't be a big complaint--the plate quickly disappeared.

 

The two pizzas we tried, boscaiola (sausage, mushrooms, tomato sauce, cheese) and vegetariana (zucchini, tomatoes, bell peppers, tomato sauce, cheese), both had a very thin-crust, cracker-y in places, soft in others. (This scorched nature apparently is Roman style.)  They arrived steaming hot.  Oj like the vegetarian one; I liked the spicy sausage on the other one.

 

We decided we didn't want dessert, but the restaurant gave us a free one anyway.

 

All serving plates and the pizzas were square.  Napkins, though disposable, felt expensive, almost as if they were made of cloth.

 

In spite of being a small restaurant filled with one four-top and less than a dozen two-tops running the length of the bar, it was almost entirely empty the entire time we were there.

 

The restaurant has a wide selection of beers on tap and wines by the glass.  We tried a Big Daddy IPA and liked it.

 

Parking is a pain.

 

Quote of the evening: we overheard a father telling a child, "This is a flying saucer of goodness."  He was talking about clams.

 

Original Announcement

 

Tonight we'll head to Cinecitta Ristorante & Bar for some North Beach atmosphere and Roman-style pizza.
