The people you meet as children can have a tremendous impact on your life, except guidance counselors. Shoreline Community is a reach?!? Seriously, man? Impacting each other's lives by opening a pizza joint, the guys behind Primo.
Serving up traditional hand-tossed pies, this 60-seater's the latest from the guy behind the original Suite 410 who, with the help of a pizza vet he's known since they were kids, has funked up the elegantly-domed-ceiling space that used to be Beams (and Rustica, and Geneva) by ripping up the dowdy carpet, slapping fresh paint on the old-world crown-molding, and littering the bar-less eat-space with tables made from butcher block, also a hard-to-pull-off move in the Gangs of New York arcade game. Initial 'za offerings include the button mushroom/mozz Prosciutto e Funghi; the Carnivore w/ pepperoni, Canadian bacon, salami & Italian sausage; and a "glutenous" ricotta/pesto based pie w/ mozz, roasted garlic, roasted peppers, artichoke hearts, kalamata olives & sun dried tomatoes called the Caligula -- who may be famed for lewd behavior but that didn't stop him from annexing Mauretania, and constructing two new aqueducts. You go, freaky perv-ruler! P's also got sandwiches (the oven-baked Italian w/ pepperoni, prosciutto, salami & mozz over red sauce), and fresh pastas like the Parmesan topped pesto Gnocchi, and the za-sauced baked penne, but not baked Penn, since that just leads to spending most of your time in a hut in Haiti, avoiding Wyclef Jean.
Primo's currently sans liquor but they'll be adding not-za-sauce soon, plus new grub options like a pie made with peanut sauce from Thaifusions, a line of kitchen wares one of the guys started with his mom, another person who has tremendous impact on your life, especially when you're borrowing her car to commute to SCC.
