Falanghina- Pizza Napolitana is coming to West Berkeley

Food_Dude | May 27, 200804:19 PM     11

Chowhound loves pizza so here is some grist for the mill.
A new pizzeria from the owners of Lalimes/T-Rex/Seasalt/Fonda/Jimmy Beans has been approved by the Berkeley zoning adjustments board. "Falanghina" (the name of an Italian white grape variety, in case you are wondering) will soon occupy the empty storefront directly adjacent to Seasalt on San Pablo Avenue near Dwight Way. The plans submitted to the city (and approved last week) include a big wood burning pizza oven.
As a neighborhood resident I was thrilled when Seasalt moved in. Needless to say, I am all aquiver at the thought of wood oven pizza a short walk from my front door. The permit paperwork also mentions a full bar, retail wine shop and valet parking. The neighborhood is certainly looking up!
