Every neighborhood needs a place where you can take all of your first dates, pretend you’ve never been before, and act surprised by the secret patio with string lights and always-available tables. In Prospect Heights, that’s Ogliastro, a neighborhood pizza place with candlelit marble tables and a full bar that we wouldn’t mind going to once a week. The pizza here is pretty good, especially the classic margherita.
