A16...again

I am not a regular poster, but here is a little review.
I have two aunts visiting and decided that A16 would fit the bill for an early Saturday night dinner. I called at around 5:30 to reserve a table on Saturday for 6-ish, and the hostess said they had many tables open and "would work something out". I explained that I was in downtown and was heading out to the restaurant. I arrived at A16 and foolishly assumed that "work something out" indicated a table would be waiting for us, but no. Anyway, we had to sit on one of the less desired tables at the entrance. We were not given a wine list (gasp!) until I asked for one from the busser.
The appetizers (burrata and a ricotta cheese salad with walnuts and a green olive tapenade) were wonderful. The pizzas were ok and not as delicious as I recall when they first opened. My pizza bianca's crust was pale white. The second pizza margherita had about 5 bitty basil leaves. Needless to say, I was a bit disappointed. It is still a wonderful destination spot if only for the wine and burrata. Total for 2 pizzas, pork breast entree, 2 appetizers and 2 glasses of wine was $100 including tip. Next on my list is Pizzetta 211.
