If you want to order a medium or large version of the pleasantly crusty, stone-oven-baked pizzas, you’ll have to get it to go. But if you can find a space in this very cozy bistro, pick your own pie ($12–$15), or consider one of the calzones with the cafe’s signature pesto sauce, made with macadamia nuts in lieu of pine nuts. The best values may be the Mama Mia dinners ($13): roast chicken with twice-baked potatoes or beef lasagna with focaccia, both with a garden salad and served at lunch as well. Arrive before 5pm to order one of the sandwiches in freshly baked bread or focaccia buns. Note: Bring your own beer and wine (Malama Market is just around the corner); the pizzeria charges $2 to $5 for corkage, depending on how many are imbibing.
