Nicoletta is Chef Michael White's no-frills East Village pizzeria. The space is super casual with a brick oven and open kitchen. The menu is mostly Italian classics like big plates of calamari, arancini, stromboli and the standout meatballs. The tasty thick-crust pies are loaded with different combinations of toppings but the best is the calabrese with deep pepperoni cups that curl up and fill with grease (don't front like you don't love that). This place is super affordable with big portions easy to share, making it a good spot for a weekday date or group dinner.
