PizzArte's upper-level dining space doubles as a gallery, selling works from up-and-coming homeland artists, but the true art is on the first floor, coming out of the oven (custom-built by the guy who did Keste’s). Montanara pizza -- pizza that is deep fried, then baked -- is one of the greatest gifts (or curses?) from the pizza gods, and PizzArte does it very well. On the off chance that you don't want your pizza fried, there are a number of delicious Neapolitan numbers, as well as gluten-free options. But obey the pizza gods and try the fried pizza.
