On the heels of Jame Enoteca’s successful debut, chef/owner Jackson Kalb—along with wife and co-owner Melissa Saka—opened this approachable Southern Italian restaurant just steps away from the Venice boardwalk. You’ll definitely want to try the romana tonda-style pizzas, adapted from the techniques of storied Roman bakery Antico Forno Roscioli, with crusts thin and crispy enough to remind you of a cookie’s edge. Inspired by Saka’s go-to Fresh Brothers order (a tomato pie with pepperoni, pineapple, and jalapeno), the Hapa is a flavor explosion of slow-smoked pepperoni macinati, slow-roasted pineapple, and raw pickled jalapeno and fresno. House-made pastas, fett’unta (thick slices of toasted bread slicked with olive oil and topped with stracciatella or garlic or ricotta), and a few finger-licking secondi fill out the menu, while a fine assortment of Californian and Southern Italian wines and a special negroni section means you may need to call an Uber home.
