There of us dined here on a chilly evening after being the object of (feigned?) ferocious attention from an especially loud watch dog who--from his side of a neighbor's fence--decided to escort us from the large parking lot to the terrace of the restaurant. Following that bit of jarring aerobic exercise, we stepped into the restaurant and were warmly greeted by one of several extremely kind members of the family that owns this charming place. Gazing inside the "glass booth," we watched the chef work at an amazing pace to produce variation after variation of pizze, all with a crust that almost approaches "carta di musica" in its lightness and thinness. I had a Da Napoli, I believe it as called, with capers and anchovies. Thinking that might push the saltiness a bit too far, I asked for the pizza to be topped with arugula. It arrived precisely as ordered and was delicious. The choices of my dining partners were equally well executed. We had the pizze after we devoured the house appetizer plate, a very generous selection of buschette, crosstoni, salame and cheese. Well turned out and appealing. One of us especially liked a mild goat cheese that was used to top a rondel of kiwi. I asked the hostess who made it. She said she would check and then returned with a package of the cheese as a gift for us. This was just the most extreme version of their lovely approach to clients. Caring, attentive, helpful, professional surely, but deeply kind and personable (our waiter was writing about Pirandello in his university work). I sense that the ethos of this place (call it integrity, perhaps, and solidarity with the guests) that is so evident ion the service applies to all that they do (the things customers don't see). The restaurant features a full range of Tuscan dishes beyond pizza. I hope to try some of them (including what appeared to be a spectacular Bistecca Fiorentino) some day. And the dog? Equally loud, bold, and aggressive on our way out as he had been on our way in...Some things never change. I hope this applies to Scroccazucche, as well.
