Pizza.

All right, enough pleasantries. Let’s begin...

For there is much to explore at ’O Munaciello, a new Neapolitan restaurant and pizza spot now open in the MiMo District.

There’s a real nod to authentic Italian things here. Fitting, considering its roots: a sister location in the annex of a 17th-century basilica in Florence, the same city that it imports its ingredients from.

Other real-deal touches include a life-size statue of a hunchback at the front door. Touching the hump is said to bring good luck. Drinking from the prosecco-only cocktail menu is said to liven your spirits. Test that theory by ordering a Lavender with wild blueberry syrup, blueberries, agave and, yes, prosecco.

The tablecloths printed with directions on how to decode your dreams through symbols and numbers will lead to interesting conversations with your date. Or perhaps you’ll end up at a sidewalk table, taking in the surrounding mid-modern architecture and the longing gazes from passersby while sharing a shrimp-and-octopus pie.

If the scallops with creamy potato-and-leek sauce and black truffles sound tempting, indulge.

Split some oysters and prawns.

Keep going.

End things with a cannoli.

Okay, at ease.

On a typical Wednesday, Ginger Harris is likely seeking reposado tequila, squeezing her way to the front of a concert or jumping on the back of an Indian motorcycle. That’s just Wednesdays, though.
