If cheese is your jam, type in the "Mozzarella Store, Pizza & Caffé" as your next Mag Mile destination and envision slathering truffle burrata on freshly baked bread. The venue gets most of its goods from Golfo di Napoli Dairy, in Warren, IN owned by the cafe's proprietors. The "Fior di Latte" and burrata, however, are made by an on-site Italian cheesemaker every day - so enjoy the show. In addition to cheese and Italian meats, the menu features pizza Napoletana exiting the wood-burning oven at a steady pace, small plates, salads, calzoni and panini. The Diavola pizza offers a burst of flavors with fior di latte, San Marzano tomato, spicy salame, basil, evoo and anchovies. Have a perfect cup of Napoletano espresso or creamy latte made on a classic pull-down lever espresso machine sided with any of the home-made pastries (sfogliatella, a flaky, layered pastry filled with sweetened ricotta, is a sure thing) or "Fior di Latte" Gelato. There's a small roster of Italian wines and beers that complement freshly made cheeses and pizzas. Take home imported food products like San Marzano tomatoes, grilled peppers, and pistachio cream. Bring your buddy: the dog-friendly patio has tables along Pearson St.
