Pizzetta 211 is thin-crust pizza royalty. The lowkey Richmond spot earns the title based on evenly golden-brown crust alone. What goes on the pies depends on what’s in season, and rotates every other week. So expect super fresh ingredient combinations like gooey eggs and asparagus or braised short rib with garlic confit. The pies serve one, but the ideal way to eat here is to come with a date or a few friends and split as many as will fit on the table (which could mean ordering all six pizzas). And save room for dessert—the dense flourless chocolate cake is a neighborhood gem, as is anything with their brown butter shortbread.

Food Rundown

The menu at Pizzetta 211 changes biweekly, but here’s an idea of what you can expect.

Cheese Salad

This starter is basically the love child of a cheese board and a salad, and it’s the only acceptable way to begin a meal here. The rotating cheeses are tucked onto a plate next to slices of fresh baguette, olives, spiced walnuts, and a simple greens mix. If all salads were made up of 50% cheese, we’d be eating more salad.

Farm Egg, Bacon, Winter Green, Garlic Confit, Gruyere

When there’s a weekly pizza involving an oozing farm egg on the menu, order it. This one goes especially well with the crisped-up bits of bacon and cracked black pepper on top.

Valrhona Flourless Chocolate Cake

Pizzetta 211 is always brilliant in the dessert department, and thankfully this flourless chocolate cake is permanently on the menu. The powdered sugar-dusted slice is reason enough to come here.
