A pizza place run by Mario Batali, Joseph Bastianich (Batali’s partner for Babbo and Del Posto), and Nancy Silverton (of Campanile and La Brea Bakery)? It sounds like a fantasy, but it’s not; since 2006, this dream team has been dishing up spectacular Neopolitan-style pies with puffy, charred crusts to throngs of fanatics. The toppings range from the semi-traditional (house-made fennel sausage with sweet red onions) to the creative (squash blossoms) to the outré (sweet Gorgonzola, radicchio, and fingerling potatoes). Be ready to wait for a table and to use your shouting voice: this place gets loud.

From the From the May 2008 Food & Wine Go List

Pizza master Chris Bianco uses top-notch artisanal ingredients for exceptional wood-fired pies that have been called the best in the country. His brick-walled place is regularly mobbed; expect long waits.

We loved: Wiseguy pizza with roasted onions, smoked mozzarella and fennel sausage; Biancoverde pizza with mozzarella, ricotta and arugula

Insider tip: Impatient pizza lovers take note: Reservations are accepted for parties of six or more.
