We had been excited about the opening of Sag Pizza
for several months mainly because it is owned by the owners of LT Burger which we have consistently enjoyed over the past few years. The space, occuppied for decades by the beloved Pizza Parlor Conca D'Oro has been transformed into a sleek yet warm high end pizza parlor.
We went on a busy August weekend recently and though the restaraunt was crowded and bustling it had a relaxed feel with families taking a break from the heat mostly dining on some of the imaginative fare, mainly the wood fired pizza. Lynn had the yummy Vingole
pizza with clams, garlic scallion butter, guanciale, oregano and lemon. I had the Montauk Tuna Crudo which fairly melted in the mouth. Sag Pizza had a nice selection of wines, many of them local such as the Wolfer Rose which was a blessed remedy from the dog day heat of the noon sun.
The vibe was full on Summer with a sexy, near ceiling height poster of
Sophia Loren in her movie star prime lounging on a beach in a black one
piece. Our waiter had a charming and comically appropriate Italian accent. The section we sat in was comfortable but the seating was tight. In spite of this, diners were friendly and relaxed and the vibe was unhurried. Definitely looking forward to many a return visit to try the other appetizing fare such as the Farmer's Pizza (with shishito pepper among other items) as well as the Medditeranean Octopus and Chopped "Arthur Ave" salad with salami, olive, filone, pepperoncini and gem lettuce...
