Has anyone else tried this new pizza and wine bar yet? We really enjoyed it. Tiny space in the mini-mall with Wacky Wok, the Massage Place, etc. I say sort of on AK because even though that's the address, the entrance is around the corner off of Marr St. Per EaterLA, chef is Frank Fermin (chef di cucina at Pizzeria Mozza) and owner/sommelier is Mario Vollera (Piccolo Venice, Barbershop). Bartender and owner were both super friendly and generous with the tastes of wine. I'm no expert on the various permutations of artisanal pizza, but I would describe theirs as a bit more substantial and bready than Gjelina or Stella Rosa, for example. Not a bad thing in my book. Toppings were high quality and balanced, and the dough had a nice chew and a bit of sweetness that I couldn't quite place. Very happy to have this new addition to the hood.
