Vezzo is from the same people as Gruppo, Posto, Spunto, Tappo, and Brado, and like all of those Italian spots around the city, this one in Murray Hill specializes in very, very thin-crust pizzas. Share a small margherita pie with a friend while getting drinks at the bar, or bring the family and order a few large pies loaded with toppings, like onions and chipotle chicken, or hot Italian sausage and four types of cheese.
