Best New Pizza Places in the West
Ciccio; Yountville, CA
Winemaker-turned-restaurateur Frank Altamura uses ingredients from his nearby Napa ranch—tomatoes for sauce, pork for sausages—to make wood-fired pizzas. The wine list is all local and includes Altamura’s stellar Sangiovese. 6770 Washington St.; ciccionapavalley.com.
Redd Wood; Yountville, CA
Richard Reddington, who runs the elegant Redd down the street, goes casual at this industrial-chic Napa trattoria. The focus is on salumi, antipasti, well-priced wines and rustic pizzas with crispy, ultra-thin crusts. “It’s a place for an impromptu meal or a reprieve from wine tasting,” says Reddington. 6755 Washington St.; redd-wood.com.
