The ambiance is uber low-key but quirky at this new Williamsburg pizzeria backed by Joaquin Baca and the dudes from Roberta's. Customer-decorated paper plates adorn the walls while piazzaolo (and Pulino's alum) Frank Pinello churns out three types of pizza, ranging from $3 to $4 for a slice and $18 to $21 for a whole pie (plus more for additional toppings): classic cheese, white (ricotta and mozzarella with caramelized onions and sesame seeds), and the "grandmother," a square slice topped with raw tomato sauce and a smattering of anchovies. The crisp and chewy slices here aren't quite the best pizza in all of New York City, but they're certainly contenders as some of the best in the 'burg.
