This wood-fired pizza spot is a welcome addition to the glitzy, pricey, and often touristy Gold Coast offerings. The pizzas by Chef Tony Mantuano, the same chef behind Spiaggia, are the perfect melding of chewy and crisp at this casual neighborhood trattoria. Sit at the bar for quick, amicable service or sink into one of their comfortable booths for a more leisurely meal. Pizza toppings range from traditional (margherita and quattro formaggi) to creative, with duck or lamb sausage, pistachios, and Manchego cheese as toppings. There are also plenty of non-pizza items, from sandwiches to proteins. And with 14 flavors of gelato daily, Bar Toma is also a great stop for espresso and dessert.
