Hot Italian Pizza and Stuff


After enjoying a leisurely stroll around the art and music festival in Fremont Park, I popped into the bar of Hot Italian restaurant for a pizza.  This yummy pie was the special of the day:  mozzarella, gorgonzola, figs, prosciutto, and balsamic reduction.  The first bite reminded me of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich (in a good way).  The pizza could easily serve 2 people or 3 if you also had a salad.  The crust is very thin, but tasty.  It is not cheap: $20 with tax and tip, no beverages.  After eating a few slices and wrapping up the others to go, I was ready to pedal on.  They also have lots and lots of bike parking, although the vertical bicycle parking structures are awkward for my heavy one-speed beach cruiser with baskets.

It is a fun atmosphere with lots of different seating options.  It is a great place for a group.  Or you can sit at the bar if you are one or two people.  I have tried it three times now and each time the pizza has been very satisfying.  The mood and atmosphere was dominated more by who I was with than the crowd at the restaurant and lunch is more laid back than the busy evenings.  So pick your company carefully and keep your eyes open for a hot Italian.
