Pizzeria Mozza: Good for Infants Too

Pizza alla Benno
We had friends with a 7 month old baby staying with us over the weekend so we took them to Pizzeria Mozza for a late lunch on Sunday. It's a really good place to take a baby; it's noisy with lots of distractions for a baby, plenty of highchairs, and continually serves food from noon through dinner so can accommodate unpredictable nap schedules. Best of all, plenty of delicious food and wine for the big people. There were several tables with babies when we were there for a 2pm lunch so we fit right in. We ordered the fried squash blossoms stuffed with ricotta (we devoured them so quickly I didn't have a chance to take a picture), bone marrow appetizer, fennel sausage pizza (we order this every time), pizza alla Benno, proscuitto, arugula and tomato pizza, gorgonzola dolce, grilled radicchio and rosemary pizza, and a nice earthy bottle of 2009 Lagrein. Everything was great; I loved the very generous portion of bone marrow (ask for extra toast), and the pizza crusts were thick and chewy as usual. Since I've been on a bit of a spice kick, my favorite pizza was probably the pizza alla Benno with nice smoky speck, a very thin shavings of pineapple and jalapenos.
