Apizz (pronounced “ah-beets”) is a tiny Italian restaurant with homemade pastas, pizzas, and more. The dining room is dark and cozy (hence the fuzzy photos below). Best dish of the night was the gambero — the shrimp were cooked perfectly and the sauce was divine (great for dipping bread)! I also really liked the short rib gnocchi and the prosciutto and mozzarella pizza.
