Julius Pizzeria

Pizza chefs speaking rapid-fire Italian as they sling dough into a wood-fired oven from Naples and an Italian-focused wine list provide a trip to Europe without the jetlag. Confident, friendly service and a bustling open kitchen give this modern Italian restaurant an appealing verve that's a hit with everyone from corporate types to hip young things and the stroller set. It can get a little noisy, but that's part of its charm. And you might have to wait for a table, but your patience will usually be rewarded swiftly. Complimentary bread is followed by tender flash-fried calamari, served simply with a slice of lemon. Pappardelle with rich duck and tomato ragù, one of five excellent pasta dishes, is a standout. Rustic crumbed veal with basil, buffalo mozzarella and a scattering of tomatoes for a main course demonstrates a confident simplicity. Dessert may be superfluous, but candied fruit semifreddo paired with grilled panettone proves it's not over until the fat lady sings.
