Williamsburg has lots of good pizza places, but most of them are either slice shops or serve pies that function like delicious Ambien, so they’re not great options for dates. Dough Vale is an exception. The narrow, brick-walled space feels like a place you’d find on a side street in Florence, and it’s filled with the smell of charring crust coming from the oven behind the bar. Order any of the pies, which are all big and less than $17.
