The name is partially misleading. Lardo's is, in fact, a pizzeria despite being named after the cured back fat of a pig. The pizzas are fired in front of your in the gorgeous open kitchen. They're delicious, Italian style, and satisfyingly crispy. While you can only order lardo as a pizza topping, they also specialize in excellent Italian charcuterie. The rest of the menu is mainly antipasti with some pasta and secondi. Stand out dishes in the past have included the crispy pig ear salad and celeriac and fontina croquettes. The style is somewhere between a Italian home kitchen and an industrial loft with floor to ceiling windows and tightly-packed wooden tables. It's casual, cozy and perfect date material. They're open from brunch to dinner, with outdoor tables in summer. The wine list is short, well-priced, and predominately Italian, and the cocktails are excellent.
- Restaurants for Meat Lovers: "The house special is the Lardo pizza, which comes with slivers of the wafer thin pig fat grilled and glistening on top of spinach and egg."
- Best for Restaurants for Meat Lovers Because: Carefully sourced, affordable, the charcuterie here is far above average. Go for a salumi misti to try a bite of everything.
