Pizzetta 211

Out in the Richmond fog, there is a pizza joint unlike any other. When the term "pizza joint" is said, it tends to conjure up images of sweaty men in white aprons tossing pizza dough in the air while other apron wearers dig their hands and long spoons into tubs of pepperoni and tomato sauce. Well, throw those expectations out the window, because Pizzetta 211 is an entirely different breed of pizzeria.

There's a nasty little wait to get in to this tiny restaurant, but there are indeed worse things than drinking Peroni with your friends in front of this attractive and welcoming restaurant. Once you're in and seated, you know why there's a wait. Thin-crust, medium-sized pizzas are delivered to tables around you that look and smell amazing. The menu changes often, and all of the ingredients are organic and seasonal. The constant is a basil and mozzarella that really is right on the money.
