The Fun Guy with Taleggio, mushrooms and pancetta

If you build it, they will come. If you build it underneath their apartments, they’ll stop by for gelato, Napolitano pizzas and an excellent wine selection, because what could be more convenient?

Such is the case at SoBro Pizza Co., situated on the ground level of the Mosaic apartments on Broadway.

The eatery was pieced together meticulously by owners Mon and Gerry Shirley of Mon Thai Bistro and Paul Hughes of the short-lived Park Motel Café, who created the posh and airy dining room.

You’ll find shareable antipasti (try the artichoke and spinach spread), bold salads and traditional tomato basil soup without a trace of dairy, but the main feature is the wood-burning oven that produces puffy sobrohs (or calzones), and, of course, the pizzas.

Broken down into reds, whites and greens, the pizzas come in imaginative combinations such as the Fun Guy, billed as the “perfect marriage” of taleggio, grilled mushrooms, caramelized onions, pistachio nuts and salty smoked pancetta, the ‘za is meaty and textured.

Can’t decide between available toppings? Let SoBro serve up their Four Seasons with a different taste in each quarter. Or stick with the classic margherita, featuring a healthy helping of San Marzano tomato sauce.

As the Lower Broadway area welcomes more eateries, SoBro has carved out a nice, cheesy niche for itself with solid pies, an enviable wine list and Italian staples that deserve a visit.
