Davis Square's Pizzeria Posto's atmosphere draws comparisons to Zuni Cafe in San Francisco (big windows, "bricks and candles," as penny says), the food to Gran Gusto.
Pizza is wood-oven-charred and made from quality ingredients. The bianca, roast pork, and white anchovy pizzas are getting compliments, as is the Margherita: "crisp and smoky on the outside, chewy on the inside crust. And with 00 flour, San Marzano tomatoes, and fior di latte, it was everything I hoped for," says pocketgarden.
Tagliatelle with braised rabbit, peas, and favas was "savory and delicious," says pocketgarden; the tuna and chickpea salad, with seared tuna and a lemon-garlic dressing, was another favorite. penny liked the crispy pigs' ears, which were "wonderfully crisp and salty," and the braised lamb with polenta ("the lamb just melted in your mouth").
The wine list is large, with by-the-glass prices ranging from $5 to $20.
