Walk into Babbalucci, and you’ll notice a wood-burning oven in the back of the dining room. And that’s what makes this place an above-average neighborhood Italian restaurant. They do about twenty different pizzas in two different sizes (with toppings like duck prosciutto and gorgonzola) in addition to a full menu of pastas, small plates, and proteins. This place isn’t huge, but it’s cozy and family-friendly and the little front patio is a great place to drink wine when it’s nice out.

Eataly: La Birreria
We didn't see it coming, but we actually really dig the beer garden on the roof of Eataly. You’ll be hard pressed to find one with a larger variety of good things to eat, and the crowd is much more pleasant up here than in the tourist packed insanity that exists underneath it.
