Near Page...Metro Hotel site...now that Divisadero has bloomed with new trees, pedestrian bumpouts, new Old Fashioned streetlights...things are hoppin (BiRite is 'commin!) but Ragazza is here....!
I went on opening night ..last night..and things were running quite smoothly....pleasant space and outgoing staff!
My friend and I ordered a salad with farro, apples and Green Goddess dressing....a refreshing beginning to the double pizzas we ordered...one..a bow to see whether the meatball pie really might resemble a New York pizza...it definitely looked like one with a resplendent charred crust and a nice balance of cheese to sauce...it also had the crisp and then chewy undercrust...but lacked that certain New York taste...didn't matter it was quite good for what it was..! The second was the Amatriciana...w/ egg.....its' crust had a more crisp interpretation...and, was bathed in the sauce from the egg yolk......the flavors were quite piquant...and I enjoyed this pizza as well...we finished with the Ricotta cheesecake, which is normally one of my favorite desserts, but this version was way too grainy..other than this one dissapointment...I am glad and relieved that I can walk to a pizzeria...that I actually enjoy.
The other things such as Osso Bucco are things that I will definitely return to try!
