Head here for a fun for a casual date. It’s mostly pizza, but it’s super delicious and who doesn’t like pizza?. The scene is made more for a younger “hipster” crowd and they designed it so you can hang out all night. This is a great place to go if you think the date might go well.

Must-Have Dish: The Tirolo pizza topped with ruffles of a smoked ham known as speck, herb cheese and crunchy hazelnuts for $18.
