Pizzeria Sirenetta is a pizza place on the Upper West Side from the same people behind The Mermaid Inn. Each pie here is large enough to feed one person for dinner, and there are also a few pastas and mains (like veal milanese), plus a perfectly good kale salad and a bunch of other small plates. Get a table in the little dining room, or sit on the front patio when they open up their big garage-door windows in the summertime. While this place doesn’t quite crack our top-20 pizza list, you should still be eating here if you live in the neighborhood - and do your best to stop by at Happy Hour, when all the pizzas are $12.50 and a few drinks are discounted as well.
