Gene: How are you seeing that article? Do you have a subscription?

When they first opened, the photos they were posting on their Instagram account didn't look that great (though it may have tasted good, I don't know ... I like to hold my judgment until I've eaten). But the recent pics they've been posting have looked great.

FWIW, at least one of the pizzamakers there worked at Paulie Gee's in Paulie's early days and so may have brought some of that oven-skills know-how to the place.
¡Hasta la pizza!

Also, I live pretty dang close to this place but it is open only for dinner, so I have not yet had the chance to try it. It's driving me crazy.

It recently started brunch/lunch hours on Sunday, but I have not had a Sunday free since then. In a couple weeks I will have a free Sunday and hope to try it. The space itself looks very nice, though the name has confused the locals, at least on neighborhood Astoria bulletin board I visit/post on.
¡Hasta la pizza!

No, that's wierd.  The pictures were there the first time but I can't see them now.  They really looked good.  Here are more, they don't look as good....

It's clever in a hipster sort of way. 8)
Back to being a civilian pizza maker only.

That's what some of the locals groused about. It requires you to know fior di latte, obviously. If you don't know it, you don't get the pun, and then you think of a flower expressing milk, which is sort of funny.
¡Hasta la pizza!
