I went to Savoia, located on Smith St. in Brooklyn, the other night. The decor is pretty yuppy, in keeping with the neighborhood, but they have a real, Italian-style pizza oven. Prices aren't too bad, especially if you don't order a single pizza for everyone in your party.
We started with a beef carpaccio. The beef was good, thinly sliced, the texture just slightly dried and not chewy, and they served some nice greens, apple slices, and a light vinagrette.
The pizza was thin, the crust slightly charred. The toppings were a cut above American-style pizza. We had one combination of earthy porcini, cheese and sausage. The sausage was a bit bland, but the combination was nice. We also had a "new style" pizza, with pears and blue cheese. It was both slightly sweet and earthy/moldy. Very nice.
We spoke with the owners after eating. He was friendly and wanted to make sure that his customers had a nice experience.
