Zach Pollack’s new really cramped, corner italian-american pizzeria in echo park. This place is tiny and fills up really quickly, so come early if you don’t want to wait. They also have the most ridiculous four-top i’ve ever seen.

The food wasn’t destination worthy, but a good spot if you’re in the neighborhood. Come for the mozzarella sticks and take the cannoli.
The bread came with a roasted garlic puree/spread, instead of butter and garlic. Pretty good.
As good as advertised, crunchy, crispy, gooey, deep fried goodness. How can you not like deep fried cheese rods? Pro-tip: save the marinara sauce for your pizza crust.
I liked the crispy charred edges, but the interior didn’t have much flavor.

The crust was soft, chewy and flaccid with not much crisp. The toppings of meat, jalapeno, and cilantro reminded me of a banh mi. Not bad, but I prefer crisper crusts like URBN, desano, and mozza.
Because of the heatwave they were out of the cookies n cream semifreddo, so i had to settle for the cannoli. This and the mozzarella sticks were the highlights of the night. The ricotta filling wasn’t too sweet and was flavored with orange and pistachio. Really good.
