This always-jammed Cleveland Park pizzeria is known more as a hangout for squirmy five-year-olds and their parents than for bargoers. But at night the tiny back bar is arm-to-arm full, and during the day, when the place quiets down, it’s a nice respite for an afternoon snack. Start with a plate of paper-thin lomo (cured pork loin) or San Daniele prosciutto or a goat’s-milk bocconcino with grape-apple-and-pear jelly. Most selections on the under-$50, all-Italian wine list are available by the glass, quarter-liter carafe, or full bottle.
Best Dishes Anything on the specials menu; Vongole pizza; Abruzzese pizza; house-churned ice cream.
Price Details: Appetizers $3.95 to $6.75; pizzas $7.95 to $12.95
