About a year ago, we had pizza at Sette, and it was terrific. Classic New York-style pizza. The service was erratic, but the pizza more than compensated.

Last night, we went back, and things have changed. The pizza was just okay. We had two pies, and both came out of the oven too soon, with limp, undercooked crusts. The toppings were good quality, but they hadn't had time to blend.

We started with bruschetta and a salad, which were fine, but it's all about the pizza. The only real beer on the list was Sierra Nevada, and they were out of it. On the plus side, the service was good, but we won't be going back.

But fear not, Richmonders, you still have two choices for great pizza:

  • Ariana's in the Museum District. We get our delivery pies from Ariana's. They're consistently good, and occasionally perfect;

  • Tarrantino's, the pizzeria annex at Tarrant's Cafe, Broad and Foushee. Abundant cheese and toppings, and the crust is outstanding. You can order off the regular menu, too - try the world-class cheesecake.
