Divisadero in Nopa is home to many fast-casual places, bars, and, of course, Nopa the restaurant. But we can’t eat a pork chop for dinner every night, or spend several hours loitering at the bar hoping to elbow our way in (both of which are things we associate with eating at Nopa). Ragazza is better for groups, better for Italian food, and better for outdoor seating than any other place in the neighborhood, and it’s popular for takeout, too. Start with some burrata, a kale salad, and meatballs, then split a few pizzas or pastas.
