We love the original Fiorella in the Richmond, and the second location on Polk Street makes food that’s just as good, in a larger space so you’ll have a better chance of getting a table when you walk in with a few friends. The pizza crust here is light and airy and would make pocket lint seem like a passable topping, though thankfully it’s topped here with things like clams and guanciale. Fill out the table with a few dishes from the antipasti section, especially the butter beans with kale that’s in the running for our new favorite small plate.
