Already smitten with Parkside on Sixth Street, it was no surprise when I discovered and fell in love with the delectable artisan pizzas at The Backspace. This recently opened Neapolitan-style pizzeria is owned by the same restaurateur and Chef of Parkside, Shawn Cirkiel.
This super quaint and incredibly romantic restaurant is a recommendation I would give to anyone looking to have some amazing food and share an intimate evening with a loved one or a couple of close friends. It is REALLY small so get there early and get ready to wait. It is worth it, I promise!
Recommendations (Vegetarian of course):
1. Drink- Peroni It’s on draft!
2. Appetizer The pattypan squash with pumpkin seed pesto
3. Main Course- Pizze Bianca
4. Dessert- Ricotta Cheesecake Ah. May. Zing.
