Eat Me Pizzeria is a favorite with local waygooks, offering a large menu of pasta, risotto and pizza at a reasonable price.
The restaurant’s interior is warm and inviting, and the seats near the window offer a view of the downtown streets. The restaurant was relatively empty when we went on a weekend night, and they were able to accommodate a large party of ten by pushing together a few tables. The service was attentive.
The flatbread that came before the meal was warm and reminded me of naan. The crab risotto is particularly good, as is the mushroom risotto. We tried the pancetta pizza and the pesto manzo, both of which were delicious. They also gave us a small dessert after the meal, a cream pudding accompanied by a small, heart-shaped spoon.
