Cinque Terre’s bar has blue neon lights under it, the tables have white tablecloths, and there are casually-placed magnums of Veuve Clicquot champagne as decoration. Despite how corporate it feels inside, the Neapolitan pizzas here are truly excellent (we like the margherita the best), complete with a blistered, crispy crust and the perfect ratio of San Marzano to mozzarella. Most of the entrees are over $30 and aren't super memorable, so go for a couple of pizzas or pastas like casarecce with pesto and ricotta or rigatoni with boar sugo.
