Though the place shares an owner with Cafe Milano and Sette Bello, the crowd at this Dupont Circle pizzeria is mainly young and from the neighborhood. They come for thin-crusted wood-oven pies (the Margherita is best), salumi, and pastas such as the robust cavatelli with sausage and broccoli rabe. In summer, the sidewalk cafe is a prime spot for people watching.
