Frēlard Pizza Company is the sister pizzeria to Ballard Pizza Company, but it’s smack in the middle of a busy stretch on Leary Way (in the neighborhood with for sure the ugliest name). Their patio is the best outdoor place to have a beer-and-pizza party with your entire group of friends, huddled around a picnic table next to random barrels and a stone-covered firepit. The service is great, a rotating seasonal hard cider is always on tap, and the pizzas are the best New York-style pies you can get in the city (make sure a prosciutto and arugula one is on your table). A couple of large pizzas and some salads to share and Saturday’s sunset meal is taken care of.

Bizzarro Italian Cafe
Bizzarro in Wallingford kind of looks like a circus horror movie set, but it somehow works. Probably because the Italian food is so great.
