In short: I will not eat here again. All flair no taste, might be good for non-Italians.
I went to Pizzicotto with the hope that finally I would find a decent Italian restauarant. I enter and my hopes where raised as the place looked genuine and the waiter & owner spoke Italian
I was not treated rudely at all but I can believe other reviewers as the restaurateur has certain behavioral characteristics that it is not hard to believe.
The food was going to play my judgment.
I ordered Spaghetti with Calamari (with tomato sauce). Great disappointment and insult. The sauce they used was the Italian-American "marinara" sauce with too much garlic in it, killing the taste of the calamari. The calamari was not succulent and soft as I am used to back in Italy. As soon as I tasted the pasta I removed in my mind the label "Italian" restaurant.
I had a suspicion that the pasta, a bit al dente, was pre-cooked and then re-heated with the sauce. But thats a suspicion.
The worst I had. The base was terrible and they used the tomato base sauce similar to the marinara.
I asked the waiter if they had "salsiccia" (real Italian sausage) to add as an extra on the pizza and he said yes. I stressed it being "salsiccia" and not the sweet Italian sausage variety you only find in the U.S. He assured me the former. Lo and behold it was the American variety.
Although better than your average Italian-American restaurant i will not return here. I can do a better plate at home.
Bill for 2 people (2 pastas, 2 glasses of pinot griggio, 1 pizza) = $60
Pros: Wine & ambience
Cons: Worst pizza
