Brothers Ben and Nick D’Allesandro spin tasty pies and pour frothy beers to loyal customers at their laid-back Elliotborough pizzeria. Start off with a hearty side salad filled with a variety of fresh veggies and cheese, then try our favorite pizza, the Chauncinator: a margherita with double pepperoni, minus the tomatoes. The menu includes a few “CalJoes,” which are calzones with sandwich ingredients. They also offer a list of lunch combo deals starting at $6.95 as well as cheap beer at happy hour. The place consistently feels as chill as the D’Allesandro brothers themselves, making it a popular local hangout for college kids and neighborhood residents. Despite our pleas, the bros tell us they won’t be adding another location anytime soon, but they have expanded their reach, stocking Piggly Wiggly freezers with frozen pizzas made fresh in their off-hours. We’ve got a couple in the freezer right now for those times we’re craving some D’Al’s and we’re too far away from St. Philip St. to get us some. —Erica Jackson Curran Dish (Summer 2013)
