Last week, Shyam and I swung by Peperoncino in Park Slope.
It’s a pretty standard Italian restaurant and in addition to trying their ravioli in vodka sauce we also ordered a Quattro Formaggi pizza pie (fior di latte, fontina, gorgonzola, parmigiano). With absolutely no expectations, I have to say it was quite tasty. At $13, it was slightly cheaper than what you might find in Manhattan and you can’t beat eating at an outdoor sidewalk table on 5th Avenue in the Slope and a beautiful spring evening.
There are five other “classic” pies on the menu:
Marinara (tomato, garlic, oregano) 9.50
Napoletana (toamto, capers, anchovies) 10.00
Margherita (tomato, fior di latte & basil) 11.00
Diavola (tomato fior di latte ” spicy sausage) 12.50
Capricciosa (tomato , fior di latte: mushrooms, ham, artichokes, black olives) 13.50
And then a bunch of specialty pies:
Contadinella (tomato, mozzarella vegetables) 13.50
Ricotta E Spinaci (ricotta , spinach , capers, black olives) 13.00
La Tonnara (tomato, mozzarella, tunafish, onions) 13.50
La Belle Italia (cherry tomato, mozzarella, pesto) 12.50
Vegetariana (tomato & mixed grilled vegetables) 12.50
A ‘ciorta (smoked mozzarella, eggplant, roasted peppers, onion) 14.50
Pulcinella (mozzarella, fontina , mushrooms, speck) 14.50
Salsiccia Friarielli (mozzarella, sausage, broccoli rape) 13.50
Peperoncino (cherry tomato, mozzarella, shrimp , zucchini) 14.50
A ‘mbriana (cherry tomato, mozzarella, prosciutto, arugola, parmigiano) 15.50
