THE FOODIST / CLOSE TO HOME
Here’s a new restaurant our PillartoPost.org dining critic Holden DeMayo has visited recently in our historic North Park neighborhood. We only publish places we like and fortunately for all, North Park is in the midst of a new restaurant boom.
Si Amo Napoli, 3959 30th, replaces one of my favorite bygone North Park dining spots. Il Postino has been replaced with first rate Si Amo Napoli. Its owner, Flavio Piromallo, is a veteran of Little Italy Italian restaurants. He’s worked previously with the Buon Appetito clan and now is on his own. Look for cosmo Neopolitan cuisine here with a full bar.
Excellent DIY Proscuitto e Mozzarella bar (3 cuts of meat and 3 cuts of cheese, $20). Of course, there’s the Carne alla Genovese, $27, which is braised bone-in short rib with red onions and cabernet reduction sauce and ziti pasta. The tasty Margherita pizza was a deal at $11.
While there I ran into actress Sophia Loren and good news she hasn’t aged one bit. Give her a wave when you drop in.
