Gelati & Peccati
Everywhere You Need to Eat in San Diego Right Now
The buzz: Roman-style pizza, served by the slice.
The food: The newest member of the Buona Forchetta family, Gelati & Peccati, is modeled after the walk-up pizzerias and gelati shops common in Rome. High-hydration dough ferments for 72 hours, and is baked in sheet pans for light, airy, and crispy crusts. Sold al taglio, or “by the cut,” there’s dozens of combinations that rotate throughout the day, and while it’s difficult to pick favorites, standouts include luxurious Lussuria with mozzarella, caciocavallo, guanciale, and fresh truffle or their best-selling Invidia, simply topped with zucchini, ricotta, lemon zest, black pepper. It goes without saying that you’ll want to save room for a scoop or two of gelato, which comes in 18 flavors, and includes vegan options as well as fruit sorbets.
The cost: Pizza slices cost $3.50-5, gelato scoops are $4-6, pints are $9.
