Now a staple of the King Street scene, Monza continues to impress thanks to artisanal pies that come with farm fresh ingredients. With a nod to great Formula 1 racers, each pie comes with a racer’s moniker, like the Volpini — fresh tomato sauce, prosciutto, arugula, and pecorino romano — or the more classic Count Louis with roasted mushrooms and Italian pepperoni. Daily specials like the occasional gnocchi or roast pork with almond pesto and fresh tomatoes keep things interesting. But we always return to the pizzas, specifically the Ronnie Peterson, a perfectly crisp pie layered with oven-roasted chicken breast, artichokes, arugula, pesto, ricotta, mozzarella and garlic. That with a glass of Prosecco enjoyed on Monza’s hidden back patio and you may start to believe you’re really in Naples. Evviva! —Kinsey Gidick Dish (Winter 2015)
