Despite the crowded chaos and above the din, there is pizza euphoria to experience at Proto's. This place is seriously simple, offering only pizzas, salads and desserts on its menu, in addition to a full bar with a rotating wine list. The pizza is very authentic and flavorful and the open kitchen, with its imported Italian wood oven, can be viewed from any perch in the place. My mother, who is from Europe, proclaimed the pizza the best she'd had since our trip to Rome together. And if you like clams, every Friday night is clam pizza night! The owners fly them in for the occasion.
Pros: Great pizza, energetic environment, interesting wines
Cons: Parking, loud crowds, not enough space
