MNPC: Roberta's

We usually like to say at the end of every MNPC, “Well, group, we did it again.” But this week’s MNPC was such a success, that I feel like I need to state it in the beginning. I’m not sure if it was the weather, the restaurant or a combo of both. We went to Roberta’s in Brooklyn and it was excellent.

The vibe at Roberta's is so inviting, you walk into a rustic looking room with long tables and benches, a wood burning oven in the front, a great little bar in the back with a fantastic beer selection and a little garden seating area. I should also mention the great music. We were seated at a table in the in main dining room and got down to the business of picking pizzas. Looking around, everything looked good, it made my mouth water. We got:

Margherita (tomato, mozzarella, and basil)

Axl Rosenberg (tomato, mozzarella, sopressata, mushroom, double garlic, and jalapeno)
Animal Chin (ricotta, parmigiano, ramps, mitiake, and lemon zest)

In Volto (tomato, ricotta, mozzarella, parmigiano, sopressata, roasted red pepper, garlic, basil, and oregano)

This was a calzone type thing which is more like a pizza that they  fold it on itself. I can't even begin to say how delicious it was.

Everything tasted really fresh and I know the menu changes often and they use seasonal ingredients like ramps. The dough was tops too, not too chewy and the right amount of char.
After dinner, we took off and had a nice walk looking for dessert, which was ices at Uncle Louis G's.
Have you been to Roberta's? What was your favorite thing?
