The first restaurant opened by Gianluca Legrottaglie in the United States to share the philosophy of Roman pinsa is really worth trying. The openings in Portland and New York followed. There is a very special atmosphere and flavour in his San Francisco fraschetta-meets-bistro restaurant; a wine list compiled by a true enthusiast with lots of great labels from artisan producers from all over Europe. The pinse are named after Roman neighborhoods. A great classic is maranella, with broccolini, mozzarella, stracciatella and homemade spicy pork sausage; as is the Mandrione, with mozzarella, gorgonzola, radicchio and aged balsamic. Wine infused cookies sweeten the wait for the check.
