Piccolo Forno

Venue Info

Piccolo Forno is the Lawrencville neighborhood's epicenter for Tuscan-style Italian fare, and a big emphasis is put on the pizzas and rich pastas. Flames from the wood-burning oven warm the brick-walled dining room, and births all of the eight pies on offer, from a white take with ricotta and Gorgonzola to a fragrant mushroom-prosciutto pie. Twelve pastas are made with seasonal ingredients, including options like beet bucatini with salmon and pappardelle with braised rabbit. Know that there's a BYOB policy here, so it would only be prudent to pick up a nice bottle of red before you arrive. Come early if you want a table, or be prepared to wait.
