You’ll find a few Pizzeria Vetris scattered throughout the city, and they’re not the most inventive or exciting spots, but they serve really solid Neapolitan-style pies and are all great for a casual weeknight dinner. The one by the Art Museum also has some outdoor seating when it’s nice out, and it’s usually filled with a mix of families with younger kids and groups of friends grabbing a quick meal. Besides the pizza, you should also get a rotolo, which is really just a roll of pizza dough filled with ricotta and mortadella and it’s perfect.
