Montanara on Ludlow

Well, it's here, in what was the Poutine space, and it's as yummy as it is in Forcella: same owners, with the tall, bald bearded one keeping an eye on things in the front. They had a soft opening last Sunday, and they were GIVING AWAY FREE PIZZAS! I scored a couple before work; happy-making! I think their red sauce is damn near perfect.

Their official opening was this past Wednesday, and I tried the porchetta sandwich: porchetta, fresh mozz and smoked mozz on their fried bread. It was a real gutbomb, and a good deal for $10, but...surprisingly bland. Could've benefited from a couple of spoonsfull of that red sauce.

Mere steps away from work, and the montanara pizza is $7 (or maybe $8?). I'll be a regular.
