Pizzeria Da Laura
A fun new pizza spot is joining the ranks of Berkeley’s flourishing pizza scene. Pizzeria Da Laura is cranking out New York- and pan-style pizzas that sing. Pillowy, chewy crusts, simple yet bright tomato sauce, and high-quality toppings are how this spot (run by a Tony’s Pizza Napoletana alum) nails pie perfection. There are some homemade pastas and meatballs on the menu, but really, getting the Ray J overflowing with mozzarella, burrata, and deep pepperoni cups, or the Sicilian-style Regina (an international pizza award winner, if you care about that sort of thing) is the roadmap to pizza-party success. This place is buzzy, with two stories of seating, wine, and several TVs for your sports-watching pleasure. Think of this spot as the city’s new pizza-centric clubhouse for grad students and theatergoers, or anyone looking to have a good time.
