This stylish pizzeria is a spinoff sister restaurant to Benchmark in Kensington, but feels right at home in food-centric Old Oakland and sits across from Swan's Market. The space showcases beautiful tiled floors, vibrant red wall accents and jumbo windows that overlook a charming, bustling and typically Oakland neighborhood scene. The kitchen is known for perfectly blistered, wood-fired pies, but house-made pastas are no second fiddle. Perfectly chewy, strozzapreti is glossed with a featherlight coating of Bolognese sauce and halo of finely grated parmesan cheese. Then a crisp and local romaine salad (Star Route Farms), laced with creamy Caesar, shaved Grana Padano and freshly cracked black pepper, steps up as the perfect accompaniment.
