DOPO **'

Dopo has a few of tables out front which are perfect for a leisurely lunch in Piedmont's warm afternoon sun. Enjoyed the Neopolitan style pizza crust. Crispy on the bottom with a bit of chew on top. The topping was equally good: tomato sauce was smooth and tangy, high quality cheeses and meat.

The arancino rice ball stuffed with bolognese had a nice crunchy outer shell, but the rice to filling ratio was off. There was too much rice and the consistency of the rice was a little bit to gummy. The filling was a little bit bland which surprised me, given that I liked the pizza sauce. Next time just go with pizza and greens.
