No matter what day or time, there's usually a line for two reasons: Pizza Banfi doesn't take reservations, and the classic Italian food is really good. The decor is slightly cliche, with wall paintings over light colored bricks, but the pizzas are the main attraction here. Thin-crust pies are tossed in full view, then baked with aplomb, especially the popular pesto, chicken, and roasted red pepper combo. Pastas, generously portioned, are just as good, and the stellar Caesar salad tops just about every table.
