Pizzaiolo is a casual Italian spot with a wood-fired oven, specials written on a chalkboard, and vintage posters. The pizza is delicious, the service is excellent, and they do a really good caesar salad. It’s small, but never too crowded if you decide to have your entire family or group of friends meet you for dinner. Or come with a date and split the margherita and pesto sausage.
