Local Zucchini Salad with fiore sardo cheese and pistacchios with a lemon vinaigrette
Capofitto Pizzeria + Gelateria will be hosting late night pizza “happy hours” on Mondays and Tuesdays this summer.
Dubbed the Pizzata (which is Italian slang for pizza party), you can swing by Capofitto from 8 to 10 p.m. and get pizza for just $10. The two flavors included in this deal are Marinara and Margherita pizzas.
Even if you can’t make it to happy hour, Capofitto is bringing in a slew of new specials for the summer.
New caprese and zucchini salads will be available. As well as panelle fritte, which is a chickpea fritter, and a summer bolognese of slow cooked local pork, white wine, fragrant herbs and fresh paccheri.
You can also officially have cheese for every meal with a dessert cheese plate.
