A quick look at Tramonti Pizza on St. Mark's Place

Tramonti Pizza has been in soft-open mode the past several weeks at 130 St. Mark's Place between Avenue A and First Avenue.

Gothamist stopped by for a few visits ... and gave the place high marks.

First, the vibe:

There are somewhere around 25 seats, including three stools by the front window overlooking the bustle of St. Marks Place. The music is nondescript Italian classics, the staff friendly and professional, the pace unhurried. Located by Tompkins Square Park, Tramonti is a welcome, decidedly un-sceney respite from the often-frantic restaurants in this part of the East Village.

And the food?

In the pizza section there are seven so-called "untouchables," classic combinations that honor the old Tramonti pizza-making traditions, but all of the pies here are made with San Marzano tomatoes and Fior de Latte cheese imported from the Amalfi coast. The one untouchable I ate was called the Verace, and it was delicious, a simple pie of robust tomato sauce and large patches of mozzarella di bufala on a chewy, blistered crust.

You can find the Tramonti menu here.

There are on this month's docket for a beer-wine license. (Given the method of operation and the fact that ownership agreed to stipulations, they will not be appearing before the CB3-SLA committee.)

The two previous tenants here were pizzerias (Via Della Pace Pizza and Falanghina Pizza Bar). Whole Earth Bakery held forth for 20-plus years until December 2012.

Tough sell with those prices. More touristy than local.
