Best Pizza - 2006
Readers' Choice: Little Star
It's not surprising that the fine Italian hand visible at Craig Stoll's superb Delfina, next door, appears in every detail of this tiny spot. At a few tables indoors and a few outdoors you can enjoy delectable crisp-crusted pizzas (our favorite: the salsiccia, topped with house-made fennel sausage, tomato, bell peppers, onions, and mozzarella) and lovely antipasti (including salumi; fresh-stretched mozzarella; a divine spicy cauliflower salad scattered with capers, garlic, and Calabrian chilies; and soupy pasta fagiole). Try the salt-packed anchovies and the house-cured pepperoni, and finish with the best cannoli we've ever had. God is truly in the details here.
