The concept of Margherita is that of a “casual pizzeria” focusing on tradition and quality. Chef Giovanni Casa owns the Margherita chain.
It’s located in Courtyard nested in a cozy corner. The outside seating is very limited so it’s better if you make a reservation.
As you walk in nicely dressed waiters will greet you into a homey interior that’s comprised of two levels. There’s a central pizza oven and counter on one hand, seating area on the other. Tantalizing smells wafting through the wood fire oven will have you floating in further to the raised main dining area. One of the walls has been covered entirely with chalkboard paint and doodled on.
The menu offers authentic Neapolitan food prepared with superior ingredients, and a strong emphasis on pizza baked in the restaurant’s centerpiece, a wood-burning oven. Cozy seating combined with earthy tones immediately put you at ease. The friendly and informal service along with the buzz of activity from the pizza counter and semi-open kitchen come together to create a unique dining experience.
The menu includes all the classical items of Margherita pizzeria del quartiere dal 1959 and has 15 new seafood platters.
Save yourself the agony of making a choice and numerous gray cells by asking your server for recommendations.
Good thing about asking for recommendations is that you get to know many secrets, like their super awesome secret pizza that’s not on the menu book. More precisely it’s black truffle pizza with mushrooms and fontina cheese. While you wait for your super secret pizza you ask for appetizers. However, the cold shrimp cocktail salad will leave a taste of cold bitter disappointment in your mouth.
The cheese calzone is like a piece of heaven. It is so good it’s going to keep you coming back for more.
Their fresh Lemonade is good for your soul. Have that with your meal.
I absolutely love ending my meal with their crème brûlée.
There you go. Now go, eat, drink and be merry.
Price Range: 100-300 per person
