Pizzeria Toro review image

Pizzeria Toro

When you find yourself looking for a loud, buzzy restaurant, head to Pizzeria Toro for dinner. There’s an open kitchen with a huge pizza oven, a long communal table down the center, and smaller tables and counters around the edge of the room. The wood-fired pizzas are thin and crispy on the bottom, with a chewy, blistered crust, and while the San Marzano Tomato pie is one of the best options, you can also choose from topping combinations like fennel sausage with roasted peppers and provolone, or a soft egg with oyster mushrooms, arugula, and parmesan.
