Depending on the time of day, you can find everyone from hungover revelers to families to business workers waiting for the wood-fired pizzas with a slight char on the bottom at this quaint East Village restaurant. The medium-thick homemade crust is first-class crisp and lightly doused with grated Parmesan, and so tasty you could eat it plain and be happy. But why stop there? Add on any of the staggering array of build your own toppings (nearly 30 and counting) and choose from six sauces (from San Marzano tomatoes to lemon arugula pesto) until you’ve created your own perfect pie. Or eliminate the guesswork and dig into a signature slice of Mt. Vesuvius that tests your palate with spicy soppressata, Italian sausage, roasted jalapeno and spicy Calabrese pepper sauce. The comfortable (yet tiny) dining area and hip patio setting is just the ticket if you’ve got a large party that needs to get its pizza on.
