Osteria Procaccini in Pennington


Neighborhood pizza place, in a strip mall, is a local go-to. Casual, with lots of seating in a large dining room and an overflow area near the six-seat full bar.


Owner John Procaccini opened in 2011. As Gretalia Hospitality Group, he and his partners have three artisinal pizza places, a pancake house, and sandwich shop and two Italian gelato outposts.


Thin-crust pizza with vegan dough is the main draw. A 1,000-degree ceramic oven, imported from Italy, imparts an appealing char. Try the Procaccini pie, a simple classic with house-made Sunday sauce, minced red onion, roasted garlic and Pecorino Romano cheese. Popular pies include the Tartufo DiGianni, with white-truffle oil, mushrooms and sausage, and the Neopolitana, nicknamed Salty Heaven for its anchovies, capers and Kalamata olives. A handful of salads make great shareable starters (or meals). The La Pera combines pears, Gorgonzola, walnuts and red onions in a spring mix. Pastas and sandwiches also available.


Picnic tables out front offer outdoor seating in warm weather, and they fill up fast on weekends.
